Rabbit Food – A Short Survival Guide for Vegetarians in Taiwan

I’m a vegetarian, and the enginerd usually keeps me company. Basically, when we eat out it means no red meat, no white meat, cut down dairy and eggs, and avoid gelatin as much as possible. And 100% No. Fuckin. Olives. (Olives are Satan’s tennis balls.) Being a vegetarian in Taiwan is super easy and relaxed,…

One Hundred Ways to Summer

The Anti-Social Experiment

As I have so many times mentioned here, we as a couple tend to be a bit anti-social. You know, to the point where I wrote a blog post about avoiding people on the road. ♥♥♥♥ However, something has happened. Over the past few years, we have found ourselves more and more often in situations…

Little Things That Matter on the Road

I, the nurse, have my own little things I do when traveling. Call them hacks, if you like, to me they mean comfort, security, and survival. And coffee. I use a night guard for some serious teeth grinding problems, and since it needs to be sanitized quite often, I carry a load of Corega Tabs…

7 micro projects to work on (an update part 1)

In the previous post about the 7 micro projects we’re working on, we discussed about the small things that always seem to take so much time to take care of, and yet still you always end up leaving them to the last minute. This typically leads to that oh-no-we’re-leaving-tomorrow-and-the-house-is-still-full-of-stuff panic, which makes hitting the road often…

What’s the plan?

So, it has become the time to finally make some decisions about where, when and how. Ask me if I’m excited! Yes, yes I am and so is the enginerd, who plays a very important role of a ticket buyer in our duo. So, here’s the plan: We are leaving in early December. We will go…

In sickness and in health (on the road)

Look. I am a nurse and this may lead to an assumption that I knew how to avoid food poisoning or otherwise getting sick on the road. But the truth? The truth is that I have been so horribly sick that that itself should stop me from ever leaving home again. Although neither of us,…
