What started as a college friendship turned into a courtship of love through travel adventures, marriage, and raising a family. Barry and Jackie Hoffner started out as travel mates and became soulmates, living life fully and passing on this gift to their two boys. I Fell in Love with Your Mother on a Bus in India is written as a manifesto of the love he has for his wife and for his two boys but inspirational for all seeking what matters. Barry Hoffner recounts his relationship, world travels and early married life with his beloved Jackie and includes his dear wife’s voice from the diary she kept while they traveled the world.

After getting his MBA from Columbia University, Barry Hoffner worked in investment banking from 1985 to 2002 for both JP Morgan and ING Barings, living and working in nine countries with the last being Russia. It was in Moscow, Russia that he started raising his family with the love of his life, Jackie Hoffner. Returning to Sausalito in 2002, he left finance and pursued his interests in developing and farming vineyards at Silverwood Ranch and also building schools in Timbuktu, Mali, West Africa through his foundation Caravan to Class. Barry continues to be passionate about foreign languages and traveling, getting close to his goal of visiting 150 countries, many of which he visited with his wife and two sons, Benjamin and Daniel.
