It’s Okay, I’m a Nurse!

As I started heading back to Taipei two days ago, although a bit sleep deprived, I was still taking fresh looking and smiley selfies to send to my friends and post to Facebook. 24 hours later, I arrived to our Taipei home, stinky, tired, jet lagged and looking like I had just been to an…

50 Shades of Taipei

Nearly 5 months ago, I arrived to Taoyuan airport with my husband, a back-bag, Pleco downloaded to my phone and very high hopes in heart. And OMG (a serious OMG, sorry guys, I’m rather excited about everything that has happened here), we have been having fun. As a matter of a fact, I want to…

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 πŸ™‚ 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…

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. β™₯β™₯β™₯β™₯ However, something has happened. Over the past few years, we have found ourselves more and more often in situations…

Yangmingshan

Although we’ve already spent over two months here in Taipei, I managed to see Mt. Yangming only last week (technically, my bit hungover butt was semi-forcefully dragged there).Β  The engineer stayed at home feeling sick, while I joined a group of other people for the hike. After a random foot massage (400 NTD for half…

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…

Happy New Year!

We’ve been here in Taipei for a month now, and so far the following things have happened: We have been very cold (+15 degrees inside and outside in our first place here, not fun times) We have arranged so many practical matters, that I’m about to update my LinkedIn profile and call myself a professional…

7 micro projects to work on (an update part 3)

It’s been a serious forever since I started talking about all the little things we had to take care of before quitting our jobs, packing our bags and taking off. Now that we’re finally in our destination (so far πŸ˜‰ ), let’s take a quick look at how these micro projects have turned out. As…

A Very Damn Rough Guide to Taipei for Rookies

Don’t get the title wrong, we consider ourselves as rookies, too. We got to Taipei one and half weeks ago. It was cold, we were carrying our stuff with us, people seemed to have no clue what I was saying to them and our AirBnb apartment was scary and cold and totally what you’d get…

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 theΒ KL Forest Eco Park,…

Five days of Goa

Sun, seawater and sand. Everywhere (yes, even there, way too often). We got to Goa five days ago, and per schedule I got the flu, and the enginerd got stomach problems. Our flight took us first to the Moscow Sheremetyevo International airport. There we explored the food, facilities and taste of local beer at two…

Business lounge Gallery in Sheremetyevo airport

After we flew from Helsinki-Vantaa to Sheremetyevo airport in Moscow, our priority was to get into another nice lounge to wait for the departure of our next flight. Waiting in the middle of the night, it is essential you get to hang out in a comfy place and continue the consumption of alcoholic beverages. The…
