Hi, and welcome to my very first blog post. I’m so excited to start on this adventure in the blogging world. I will be writing primarily about travel, living abroad, and lifestyle topics. It is my great pleasure to share my life experiences with you all. Blogging has always been something I wanted to pursue because it’s a great way to spread knowledge and passions with the world.
Well, how about you get to know me a little more. Yes, I know you can read my “About Me” page, but that is only a brief introduction. I’d like to tell you a little more. I was born in a small town in Wisconsin, USA surrounded by cows and corn. Growing up, I enjoyed taking dance lessons, paying outside, being a Girl Scout, reading and writing. When I hit middle school, I started to embrace my athletic side and joined the track team. Running gave me great joy and a sense of freedom. Also in middle school, my love for music grew. I joined the band and took up the trombone. In high school, my band career continued as a participated in marching band every year. Another key turning point in high school was my interest in Asian countries. It all started with accidentally finding a cover of a Chinese song by the very talented Wang Leehom (王力宏). I was intrigued with the language, culture and music of many Asian countries from that point on.
After a fun and eventful childhood, I packed my bags and headed to college majoring in TESOL and minoring in Communication Studies. Within the first few days at college, I met a guy from Taiwan named Peter. We started dating soon after, and who knew that now in 2016, we would be happily married! After meeting Peter, I knew that moving abroad was something that was going to happen. In the summer of 2012, Peter brought me back to Taiwan to see his family and his country. After that trip, I realized that Taiwan felt like a home for me. It excited me that my dreams of living abroad were going to come true and with the love of my life. How perfect!
Fast forward to now (the end of 2016), and I’m living my life in Taiwan. I’ve gotten to travel so much since coming here. So far I’ve been to the USA, Taiwan, Australia, Japan, Hong Kong, and China.
I wish as readers, you enjoy my writing and come on a journey with me. I have so much to share in regards to travel, living abroad, and lifestyle. Feel free to contact me with any requests for blog posts! Also remember to leave a comment or share your blogs with me, too! I’d love to hear from you! For now…stay tuned!
