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 ๐Ÿ˜ฆ ) 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…

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…

The Anti-Social Travelers – How to Avoid Human Contact on The Road

Although I, the nurse, am a social media junkie, and the engineer has his own circle of enginerds, we both tend to be very anti-social. You often hear people telling these stories about how they’ve met a ton of new people on the road, backpacking around the world with new friends they’ve just met. We…

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

In the previous post about theย 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…

The enginerd on buying tickets

When you’ve done something a dozen times, you tend to forget that not everyone else has. It may seem simple enough to you, but a first-timer could still be at a loss.ย Since the engineer just booked the Helsinki-Goa tickets, he wanted to tell in details how he did it. So here it comes, a simple…

An adventure is the best prize

Nothing comes for free. Although it seems easy for us to just take off, there is actually a lot of hard work behind it. Not all we have to do to see if our dream could become reality is fun or easy. But it’s worth it. I was offered a permanent position at my dream…

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:ย 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,…
