First half of CNY 2013 was spent exploring some of Taiwan's southern cities. We did a fair amount of climbing and really enjoyed the sunny break from Taipei's long, gray and wet winter.

Happy New Year! I'm back in Taipei after an incredible few days in China's special administrative regions and really looking forward to all the change, opportunities and adventures that 2013 is sure to bring.

My housemate and her bungee jump fail. The most amusing thing is how much they stressed to us NOT TO GRAB THE ROPE! And it was the first thing she did as she began to fall! She's a good sport though and she jumped in the end which is the main part! Thanks for an awesome day!

Wow! This is an incredible feat! We should all take a moment to reflect on how truly remarkable this is...
The Voyager 1 space probe has reached the edge of the solar system, extending its record for being the most distant man-made object in space.

Timing was brilliant on this one. Hard to believe a large storm had passed over the city an hour before...

Think this is better than the other as it captures more of Taipei

Introduction
G'day there brothers and sisters. Cheers for stopping by.

I'm a native speaking teacher/journalist/web publisher based in Taipei, Taiwan. I joined Google+ to keep in touch with friends, meet new people from all over the world and share some of the interesting content I produce/stumble upon.

I'm a student of life. I believe in the positive power of change. I believe in valuing one's relationships over one's possessions.

My interests include (but are not limited to) alphabetisation, camping, cooking, culture, documentaries, gardening, geography, hiking, history, IT, media, movies, philosophy, photography, politics, renovating, science, teaching, travel and writing.
Bragging rights
I'm (slowly) learning Mandarin.
