Houtung Cat Village aka the Best Day Ever!

Okay, unlike usually, this post concentrates just and only on cats ♥ . Those adorable little assholes, who absolutely hate you. Just as much as you love them. Anyway, today we sort of accidentally found a cat village!!! As we were heading to Sandiaoling Falls (三貂嶺瀑布群步道口) (more on that later), I happened to look at Google…

FinnsAway

Road To Self: For some time now, we’ve been looking for (read: hanging out on Twitter, Instagram and WordPress Reader) other Finnish travel bloggers. Based on our very non-scientific research on the aforementioned platforms, there seems to be more of us out there and every individual, couple and family seem to have their own method…

Koko Elämän Pituisella Matkalla!

Road To Self: Olemme jonkin aikaa etsineet blogiimme vieraskynäilijöitä Suomesta. Tänään, ystävänpäivänä Taiwanin aikaa, saamme jakaa Heidin tarinan. Heidin seikkailut ovat päätähuimaavan inspiroivia ja melkein voisi suomalainen kateus iskeä, ellei osa matkakohteista olisi yhteisiä 😉 Lue lisää alta Heidin omin sanoin: “Kuten suomalainen lauluntekijä J. Karjalainen aikoinaan lauloi: Doris oli toisenlainen, Doris oli reissunainen. Täytyy…

Project Kilimanjaro – Step 1: Still On the Ground Level

We love projects, calculating, budgeting and planning future trips (be it to the nearest 7/11 for a beer run or traveling to an exotic, spider infested hell hole for a “fun” hike). So, being practically broke, and having just enough money to survive until next year, we have now started planning our next great adventure:…

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…

Bucket lists

Since we’re having a unique opportunity to have my lovely ex co-worker brightening up our vacation and keeping us awake if we get drowsy, I decided to interview her a little. We’re mostly talking about traveling here, so I wanted to know about her travel related bucket list. Although I asked her about it only…

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…

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,…

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…

Small steps and big emotions – How our downsizing is going

Our apartment should be empty in one month. In one month, we will have left with our bags and small load of things we’ll keep, after giving away or selling most of our possessions. The engineer’s parents will help us with storing most of them, and my little sister was bribed with a half free…
