Visiting Finland

It’s been two weeks since my last post. Girl needs to rest, but don’t worry, here is the latest news from me and the enginerd 🙂 I visited home this week, to get more drunk more often and to celebrate my dad’s 70th birthday. Here is how it went down: I tested the Taipei Airport…

Practical matters

So, as we have now stayed in Taipei for over two months now, all we can say is we love this city. First of all, the most important thing we’ve learned is that this city is full of absolutely beautiful and awesome people. One of them is my Chinese teacher, Mrs. Huang, who has in…

Climbing Mountains

Lately, we’ve been trying to figure out what will come out this little adventure of ours. To sum it up, after you quit your job, give away most of your stuff and move to the other side of the world (yeah, sure not literally, but close enough), at some point you just have to start…

Long story short (ish)

(The photos in today’s post are entirely links to our other social media accounts. Sorry if they won’t open okay 😦 ) Although we’ve been here in Taipei for over three weeks now, since the first week not so much has been going on. We’ve seen a ton of cats and dogs (most well groomed,…

3C, Taiwanese Girl and the Scariest Attic in the World

  We survived Christmas in Kuala Lumpur (I spent most of the Christmas Eve fighting a massive headache, forced myself to the dinner we’d paid for, and had to sport through it while surrounded by screaming kids and people wearing funny hats), saw the new Star Wars movie (really good), visited the KL Forest Eco Park,…

Have yourself a Merry little adventure

Merry Christmas, everyone! Today we are flying from Chennai, India to Kuala Lumpur Malaysia. As we take more and more steps on the road to self, we are getting our Christmas present every day. Every day we get to see a little bit more and a bit better what the future holds for us; what…

Testing YouTube embedding

Hi there ♥ We are finally on the road 🙂 We left our hometown last Saturday, visited my parents and are now at the enginerd’s parents’ place. The past week has been super hectic, and naturally I got the flu. So instead of exercising and packing, I’ve spent the last few hours learning how to edit…

In the end, it’s just a new beginning

    We are leaving soon. Writing this, it’s Tuesday, this post should be published on Friday, and there is so much left to do. We’re considering just renting a bulldozer and pushing everything into a huge pile and burning it. We are not gonna light anything up in an apartment, actually (although a bulldozer…

7 micro projects to work on (an update part 2)

In our post about the 7 micro projects we need to work on before leaving we talked about the things we need to get done before hitting the road in December. Let’s see how we’re doing now, shall we? Before we go, though, I have to admit that calling them the 7 micro projects was…

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…

Testing Instagram embedding

Hi there, this is just me learning Instagram and WordPress and how will they communicate together. Trust me, I’ve been using WordPress support a lot lately. As my first choice, I’m putting a picture of a certain nurse a tiny bit… tipsy ish… (An update: decided to change it to a pretty picture of a flower. The nurse…
