I hope I can go back in a year or so and say goodbye as it should have been. I feel like I have this unfinished business with Taiwan. I didn’t leave how I originally thought I would, and even if it’s as simple as writing “thank you” in the sandy shore along the Cingshui Cliffs, I think it needs to be done.
I’m making peace with being back in the Midwest and I’m even having some unexpected adventures here. I’m a writer for a local newspaper and have plans to continue to hone my writing skills for larger goals. I’ve met a wonderful man and I’m trusting that God will lead us in the right direction.
As I’ve mentioned before, I still have many untold stories about my time in Taiwan and I will continue to share them on this blog. I also plan on finding a Chinese language exchange partner in the area, so I will keep everyone up to date on how my Mandarin speaking skills continue to progress (or fail!).
And, of course, I will always continue my quest for authentic Chinese/Taiwanese restaurants here in the states.
Thank you for sharing in my adventures and I hope you continue reading!
Happy New Year everyone!
