I’m starting this blog to describe Taiwan through my eyes.  I will be writing about all aspects of Taiwanese life from the view of a foreigner as I experience it.  Hopefully, my adventures (or misadventures) will give helpful insight to anyone who cares.  This is a continuing work in progress.  I have never written for a public audience before (FB doesn’t count), so please forgive any grevious errors; I’ll learn the do’s and dont’s of blogging as I go along.

Since I am incredibly awesome at procrastinating, this blog will be updated according to a sporadic schedule that I am not yet aware of (possibly…err…hopefully weekly).  Anyway, here is a little about me.

I’m from Canada.  After getting my existence validation document (degree) from university I spent most of my twenties rather aimlessly.  I wasn’t too career minded because I wanted to live in the moment.  I had no interest in working in my field because I actually found it pretty boring.  I had always wanted to go travelling and see other, totally different parts of the world, but just couldn’t seem to save up enough money to do so.  When I had a good job I did typically stupid things (like buy a brand new car, party like a rock star etc).  One of the pipe dreams I had was to live and work in Asia.  My sister spent some time there, and she told me how exciting her life was but, for one reason or another, I just never got around to making it happen.

Fast forward to 2011.  My inherent restlessness combined with frustration at my current job made me start looking into travelling again.  The process took a few months and culminated in me accepting a job offer (teaching English) in Taiwan.  I hopped on a plane and after one brief overnight stop in Shanghai I was in sunny Taiwan.

So, here are some snippets of Taiwanese life. Good, bad, scary and embarassing, I hope you stick around for a while. Thanks for dropping by.
