Monday Montage: Last Week In Taiwan

This week is our last week in Taipei and we have been trying to see everything that we haven’t had a chance to yet. It turned out that we ran out of time to see Hualien and Taroko Gorge (again, Ack!). Well, I guess that that will be the first destination for our next trip to Taiwan. Next week we… Read more →

Though I am not writing, I still am here

I am no longer writing about our travels and expat lives here in Southeast Asia, but I wanted to give any future visitors an easy to find article that will show you how to find where we have been and how to contact us now. Even though I am not writing any new posts, I am still available for questions… Read more →

3 Tips for Moving to Thailand

It was our dream for many years to travel the world and then settle in Thailand. We did it. We traveled through Europe, Taiwan, and finally made it to Thailand after a year of being on the road. There are so many reasons to move to this amazing country, low cost-of-living expenses, delicious food, wonderfully balmy hot weather, and a… Read more →

Monday Montage: Tattoos, I Love You

I am not sure if I have written about my tattoos and my love of being tattooed and wanting more tattoos before… did I mention that I love that I have tattoos and want more. Oh yeah, I really do. Really really do. In fact I hope that someday I will be fully covered, minus my face and rear end, but… Read more →

Baba Wedding In Phuket Town

Once a year, couples from Thailand, Japan, Taiwan, and China come to Phuket Town to get married. All on the same day. At the same time. It is the annual Baba (Peranakan) Wedding in Old Town Phuket. “Baba” refers to Chinese immigrants who migrated to Singapore, Malaysia, and Thailand during the 19th century. Here in Phuket many came to work… Read more →

Monday Montage: Nostalgia

Last week I was feeling thankful and this week, I am feeling nostalgic. I love being in Phuket, but sometimes miss the places we have visited before. Maybe I’m not so much missing the places we have been to, but the actual act of traveling on a larger scale than just a weekend/week here and there. So today I am… Read more →

Our Time in Taipei (2014)

Taipei is a city that I fall more and more in love with each time we visit. Chad and I used to live there, way before Z came along. Because of that, we made sure to visit there (for three months) in our travels around the world in 2013, and then just recently went for a quick visit/visa run before Christmas.… Read more →

Monday Montage: Christmas is Coming!

So, Christmas is 3 days away and I am 0% ready. Okay, I exaggerate a little… presents have been bought, tree is up and lit, craft projects have been completed (well two of them anyways), but still I feel unready. Maybe it is because we were just in Taiwan for 8 days and now have three days to get settled… Read more →

3 Tips for International Trips

I was reminded of what I felt the first time traveling outside my home country when my sister and brother-in-law visited earlier this month.  I had almost forgotten the feelings of awe, culture shock, and fear that international travel can cause. And so, after many conversations with our siblings, I decided to write this post. Not only to remind myself to be compassionate… Read more →
