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 →

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 →

Monday Montage: Goodbye Taipei

We have arrived in Bangkok, Thailand!  I am currently hanging out in our short term rental that we got on airbnb.com and relaxing after a very long day of traveling. Here are the last pictures I took of Taipei, Taiwan. I cannot believe our time there is up already, it was very sad leaving our friends, but I was ready… Read more →

CKS Memorial Hall and Liberty Square

This past Sunday was a gorgeous day that made us want to be out of the house, which is not normal for us. Sundays are usually our lazy days, but with our time dwindling in Taipei and the wonderful warm weather, we had to take the opportunity to see more of the city. Chad had the idea to go to… Read more →

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 →

Wild, Wondrous Wulai

This week we decided to take the trek to a town just south of Taipei called Wulai. We traveled to Wulai many times when we lived here years ago. Wulai is famous for it’s natural hot springs,  waterfall, and a gondola that takes you to the top of the waterfall (yippee, I hope that you can detect my sarcasm in that expression).… Read more →

Wednesday Write-Up: Spiritual Lesson Learned

Every Tuesday for the past five weeks I have made my way to Grace Baptist Church near the Gongguan area of Taipei to attend Bible Study Fellowship. I  have really enjoyed studying and discussing the Bible with my discussion group, a wonderful group of Taiwanese women that have been incredibly warm and welcoming.  I loved getting to know my group,… Read more →

Monday Montage: Milestones and Typhoons

We had another typhoon make its way through Taipei again this week (ok, it was just really rainy and more of an inconvenience than anything else) . This means that we were stuck in the house for a couple of days, but luckily I still had enough opportunity to take some pictures to share with you. I hope you enjoy them. Read more →

Best Street Food in Taipei

In our previous time living in Taipei, there was one night market that I enjoyed more than any other. The Shihlin Night Market is by far the best in the Taipei area. We went there the other night, so I can give you details as to why this is the market to go to. You may not want to read this… Read more →

Wednesday Write-Up: Changes Are Always Welcome

I have never been one to stay in the same place for very long. I not only like change in my life, but I crave it. Many people do not understand my need for new or different places and circumstances. I have had people question my happiness and have often gotten the statement “You take yourself with you” from people… Read more →
