Hello there! I’m Stephanie, and my favorite phrase I use to describe myself is…“work in progress”.
After growing up on the East Coast of the US in New Jersey (I know), moving out West to Los Angeles, moving to New York City twice & a stint in the Midwest (Kansas City, anyone?) I abruptly packed my bags in the middle of my first year of university in NYC & moved to Taipei, Taiwan on a winter-break whim.
….And I still stand by it as one of the best decisions I’ve ever made, because I fall in love with every new leafy lane I discover! (Oh, and the food!)
I started this blog to document the bevy of wonderful things to do, see and eat in Taipei, as well as my experiences living abroad as an “ABC” (American Born Chinese) living the student life at a Taiwanese university. During a typical Taipei, things don’t always come up roses (sometimes, they’re more like stinky tofu)–but honestly, when I think of what I’ve gained in moving here, every day in Taipei is “a good day”.
I’m currently studying at 台灣國立大學 (National Taiwan University) & when I’m not spending my time buried up to my ears in Calculus & Accounting texts, here are a few things I do to while away the days:
…go on nature hikes & photo-shoot adventures….(“glamping, anyone? I’m an unabashed fan)–
Want to talk anything/all things cats?
Want a cafe recommendation?
Want to gush about Sweden?
I’m your gal. Send me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org or connect with me on Facebook.
