Nik has been working for a gold mining company in Fairbanks since he first got married to Jennifer. Knowing that there are gold mines all over the world, he has dreamed of what it would be like to live and work abroad, and see what lies beyond the very small bubble of life in Alaska. When that opportunity finally presented itself in Chile, it was time for a gut check, for himself, Jennifer and their three kids. Tearing themselves away from their close knit extended family, friends, and the only life they've ever known, they will have to adapt to living in a much larger city where they don't speak the language, while Nik works four days a week, at a mine high in the Andes Mountains, six hours away from his family in La Serena.
