Top Things to do in Wanhua District, Taipei

Wanhua District has been our home for the last three weeks so we thought it would be a good idea to give our readers an idea of what it’s like. Wanhua District, originally called “Monka” or “Bangka”, is Taipei’s oldest district. It can be divided up into three sections : northern, central, and southern. Northern […]

Hello fellow Trekkers! Things have been a little slow on the writing front lately, mostly because we’ve been settling into a routine at our latest Workaway. Still, I thought it would be good to give a little recap on what we’ve been up to lately.

A Westerner’s Guide to Traveling Around Taiwan

When Anthony and I were deciding where to go after Vietnam we had a little trouble picking a destination.  Ideally we wanted to stay in Southeast Asia, but since we knew we would be going back to Thailand in November to meet his sister and her boyfriend, that didn’t seem like a good choice, and […]
