Welcome to Taiwan

We are now living in Taiwan! We’ve been here for a little more than a month and it’s been a whirlwind of experience.

The first week we were here, we got down from Taipei to Tainan where we are living. We found an amazing 3 bedroom, 2 bath apartment. My husband got thrown into his new teaching job the day after we moved into our new apartment and life took off!


My husband has been teaching, we’ve been traveling around and exploring any time he has time off work, the kids and I have been wandering around the city in our free time, and eating sooo much good food!

One of the main reasons we wanted to move half way across the world is to show our kids that you don’t have to be “stuck”. You don’t have to stay in a job that you don’t enjoy. You don’t have to stay stuck in paying rent and bills that are ever climbing higher. We wanted to show them that you could break that cycle in a huge way and live the life that you truly want!

Does that mean it’s easy? Ha! No. We are not fluent, or even conversational in Chinese. We are trying but there is a huge language barrier. It can be maddening and frustrating and all of those emotions in between. But we are trying. And we are learning. And that’s the most important part. We just won’t stop trying and learning and eventually we will be able to communicate better!


My goal is to blog here more often. To keep you all informed of our international antics and what life is like for us. Yeah, I’m going to be using this as my very public diary of sorts but also – if one thing I say ever encourages anyone to take one tiny step out of their comfort zone into living a life more along the lines of the life they dream of – Then it’s worth it.

So here we go…


3 of my top reasons for breaking the 9-5 cycle.


Night market down the street


Food. So much good food here. You’ll be seeing a lot of food!

Thanks for joining the fun friends.
