- Xin nian kuei leh! (Happy Lunar New Year!) 4 months ago It’s New Year’s Day in Taichung. Almost all of the shops and restaurants are closed. The streets are empty, and the highways are crowded. Most people have traveled to their parents and grandparents in the country to be together for … Continue reading →
- Two Language Cross-Cultural Puns 5 months ago We were out driving yesterday and ran across the sign for a small cafe. It was 8 Na Na. Get it? The word for eight in Chinese is “ba”. You need to know both Chinese and English for the cafe … Continue reading →

Dan and Betsy's blog covers a wide variety of topics, from work issues to dealing with homesickness. While most of it is happy, they also do a nice job of discussing the emotional reality of living overseas.

A great source for folks travelling to Taichung -- a city that is shunned by most guidebooks. Witty and friendly.

This blog really tells what it is like to be an expat, in addition to providing interesting tidbits and travel tips on Taiwan.

As a former expat myself (Czechoslovakia 1990-1992), I can appreciate these moments! And wish I had been able to blog back then.
