When I arrived on the little island in the South China Sea in early 2001, the plan was to stay here for two or three years and then move back home…
Little did I know how charming, challenging, and life-changing the experiences that I’d make would turn out to be! I loved nearly every minute of my time here, and the few minutes that I didn’t love, I had very strong emotions on the exact opposite end of the scale…
After nearly seven years in Asia, today is my last day in Taiwan and I will – after a brief stopover in Singapore and a few weeks in Germany – begin my new job in the wild west in January 2008.
This however is at the present time beyond my horizon. The many goodbyes, and parties, and chats with old friends over the past few weeks and months make me miss this magical place already.
So, I can only say 台灣,謝謝你… 再見!
I will be back!
