Girlie and Mr. Pants (Husbear) left Austin, TX in March of 2011 with plans to take a 14-month trip around the world, yikes.

I started this photostream when we were living in Austin in 2005. Since then, we've spent a year in Italy and taken the long way back through Hong Kong, Thailand, and Vietnam. Check our archives for international fun.

We're a Yankee/Southern match, with Girlie having been born and raised in Chicago, and Husbear's roots being more of the Louisiana and South Carolina variety.

Husbear is the photographer and chef, and Girlie is the photo editor and Flickr updater.

Most of the pictures we have up here on Flickr are blogged on our blog, Boots in the Oven. Girlie is trying to be good about putting links to the actual posts under each picture, but we do have some posts on boots that are (gasp) photo-free!

Join our blog's facebook fan page here, to keep up with our big trip!

    "Great photos and utterly intelligent, witty and delicious travel adventures. "Boots in the Oven" is the couple you want to tag along with; you will eat well, learn some historical tidbits and enjoy loads of laughs along the way!"

    "I was surprised to find that bootsintheoven had no testimonials yet. They are a fine upstanding and creative couple !! (I am somewhat prejudice due to family ties ). Keep checking out their pictures of food and of the world. They take great shots ! Tra La.
