May trip to Taipei

It seems like an established thing in my life that I go to Taipei once a month. Anyway, I said at a place called Rose Boutique Hotel near Taipei Station. I met up with my friend Jaydenn for dinner. I met Jaydenn when I was in University and if it was not for her I probably would not have thought about going to Taiwan. You can see Jaydenn’s blog here (it is in Chinese but the pictures are cool).

How I Ended Up Here

How I Ended Up Here

The name is Dylan, DebonairDylan. I am an American that moved to the East Coast of Taiwan in 2015.

Glad you asked let’s break it down.

  1. It was fucking cold in NYC in 2015
  2. I had been in NYC for six years, time to see something new
  3. I was bored
  4. My lease was about to expire and I did not feel like finding a new place.
  5. I was not traveling as much as I would have liked.
  6. Why the hell not

So I sent out some applications to teaching jobs in Taiwan and Japan. I got an offer a few days later and within a month I was in Taipei.

You know, normal stuff.

Before I knew it I was an English Teacher and learning and exploring a new culture.
