The time had finally come! After so much build up and talking about it for so long, it was time for us to leave the UK to start an adventure in Taiwan!
My girlfriend Alexandra had been over for two weeks, so it felt like a bit of a holiday already. But saying good bye to Family and Friends suddenly made it all the more real.
Flights were …
I know we haven't written in awhile but we're going to start more regular updates now that we're all settled! Let's start with training in Taipei. It was awesome to see and experience the main city in Taiwan. Even more awesome were all the people we met while we were training. Some of the highlights included drinks in the park, Taiwan Beer Brewery …
Yesterday we walked around Kaohsiung and saw some neat things.
We took a boat tour of Love River which was kind of nice. Nothing too exciting but we got to see more of the city.
We walked through what we guess is the art district and the path we took was lined with these strangely proportioned statues. We ended up at …

When you first walk into the lobby, you are breath taken by a modern yet simple desk. The workers are friendly and speak English (which is a plus) but then you get to your room. Our room wasn't even nice for the Holiday Inn. Towels that suck, a crazy shower that sprays everywhere and almost no electrical outlets. So don't get fooled by the lobby. To make matters worse a fire occurred on our floor while we were out and our room smelled like burned rubber. It made you dizzy just to be in there for 5min. Basically, Ian yelled at the desk workers and we were upgraded to a smaller but very nice room for the rest of our stay. So, there are some good and bad things about staying here. Beware. However, location is awesome, in the center of the city.
