Taiwan you definitely stole my heart!
As you guys know, Taiwan wasn’t my first choice for my semester abroad. actually it was my third and I put it on my list literally 1 minute before I had to hand in my application. I wasn’t really serious with that as I thought, I’m going to London anyways! Yeah, it turned out differently and I dunno who I should thank for ending up in Taiwan.
As I’m convinced that everything in life happens for a reason, even when it turns out that we just made a bad decision, it mostly contributes to something else which is supposed to happen, consequently there’s to be a reason why Taiwan chose me.
Being my first experience in Asia, I’m totally mesmerized. Furthermore, I’m surprised how much i fell in love with Taiwan; the freaking lovely, kind and helpful people, the language, the easy-to-go lifestyle, the delicious food of course, all the fresh fruits, teas and juices, even with the annoying stuffy weather.
Just one year ago, I couldn’t have imagined myself in an Asian country. I thought it would be impossible for me to adopt to such a different culture and life. Well, it seems I’m more flexible than i thought. It took me only 4 days till i thought, ‚I’m definitely in the right place on earth‘ and that was when I first explored my neighborhood and saw the Chan Kai Shek Memorial.
So for now, I just want to thank everyone who crossed my path and made my time in Taipei unforgettable. It was truly an adventure and showed me once more that I shouldn’t stop to travel. To travel taught me minimalism, tolerance, respect and different point of views which is far more important than grammar, mathematics or politics and what’s the newest gossip.
