Bob and Trish: U.S. Tour
(and now South Korea!)
in September of 2011, Bob and Trish hit the road for a 9-month tour of the United States. They visited every state and had serious fun along the way. Juggling, unicycling, balancing, dancing, joggling, and couchsurfing were all major parts of the epic journey. This road trip was the fulfillment of a long-held dream for Bob and Trish and they are grateful for all the amazing memories.
After finishing the US Tour, Bob and Trish moved to South Korea where they are currently living and working as teachers/jugglers.
