Taiwanniversary! 23 years of Happy!

Marquee use

Twenty Three years ago, I stepped off the plane into Taiwan for the third time – and this time it wasn’t a short visit just to learn Chinese.

January 1995. It was the first week of the New Year and for me a whole new life. 

I didn’t know what I would be doing. Teach English?  Not me. At least not initially.
My first job was at a bar or a ‘disco pub’ as they called them.

  That Disco Pub was where I – not only – really learned Chinese (and a lot of Taiwanese!) but also where I really learned about the guts and innard bits of Taiwanese culture…. And the culture does go Deeeeeeeeep!

From there I forged a life here in Taiwan meeting lots of great people from around Taiwan and the world along the way….  making friendships and building relationships I still have to this day.

I missed my family and friends then of course and still miss them now, but I don’t regret living half my life on this Island.

That being said, Luvya Taiwan!

Thanks for the awesomeness!
