Taoyuan and Taipei

Happy holidays everyone! The past few days have been a little bleak, as I was down with a bad cold and also ended up getting pretty much everyone else sick! :S In spite of that, we still went out and visited downtown Taoyuan, Taipei, and spent the last couple days in Xinmen (more on . . . → Read More: Taoyuan and Taipei

Arrived in Taiwan!

Wow… how exhausting the last couple of days have been! Friday morning we woke up early to send off Anne’s parents at the airport, and then Saturday morning we had to leave. I think we only got about 8 hours of sleep in the past 3 days… and because we’re only allowed one checked-in . . . → Read More: Arrived in Taiwan!

Goodbye Korea!

It’s been nearly four months since we took a plane halfway across the world and came to this faraway place that we have called our home. It was overwhelming in the beginning but we have had a lot of great adventures here, met many friendly and wonderful people, and have enjoyed the local food . . . → Read More: Goodbye Korea!

Seodaemun Prison

Being in Korea has made me learn and realize about asian history and see how aggressive the Japanese military was. Being a North American student, we learn very little about the Eastern part of the world, we mostly hear about the Germans and the holocaust, but never about how the Japanese imperialists occupied many . . . → Read More: Seodaemun Prison

Myeongdong and Nanta Cookin’

Last weekend, a Korean friend, Joy, brought us to Myeong-Dong for the first time. It’s similar to Dongdaemun, except the stores sell mostly high-end name brands. It’s not a place to find things for cheap. It was raining very hard, so we didn’t spend that much time there, we only had supper at Myeong-Dong . . . → Read More: Myeongdong and Nanta Cookin’
