Hi there! Sorry for not replying to this post earlier. I was on vacation in South Africa during the month of October and got back to Taiwan midway through last week.

Anyway...I have been in Taiwan about 2.5 years total so far and will be here for another year.

I absolutely love it here. Seriously. It's such an amazing little country (I don't care what China says...I think Taiwan is a country). There is so much to see and do here and they are so technologically advanced and have great infrastructure in their cities...especially Taipei and Kaohsiung.

The people here are super friendly. Never have I ever feared for my safety while in Taiwan. It's the only place I have ever hitchhiked! They love foreigners and life is just fantastic.

Taiwan has things that appeal to many different people. Big cities with night clubs and shopping. Hot spring resorts in the fall and winter. Ocean and mountains right next to each other. Tea shops galore...night markets with tons of cheap and delicious food! Kenting is the place people go to to get some more tropical experiences...it's quite south and is a bit warmer than the rest of the country.

Trains, subways/metro, buses and taxis a plenty...there aren't many places you CAN'T access in Taiwan. Lots of offshore islands like Green Island (super famous for its natural ocean hotspring), Orchid Island and Penghu.

Right now there is the Flower Expo. Just started this past weekend and will be running for a few months. Can't wait to go see it in the super Eco-friendly and award-winning building it's taking place.

Anyway...if you want to come check out Taiwan...feel free to hit me up! My Chinese is quite decent and I would love to play tour guide!
