Jan 14, 2008 - Taipei, Taiwan

Brrrr, my first impression of Taiwan is how dang cold it is here! It is the middle of winter, so I shouldn't be surprised...but my poor body is just not used to these temperatures! Despite the weather, I had a great time with Sonnie & Randy in Taipei. They were extremely generous and opened up their house and hearts to me. Randy and I lived together for a few years back in SF...in the Marina and on Russian Hill! He's been working in Taipei for the last couple years, which is where he met Sonnie. Sonnie was an amazing host and a great tour...

Nov 14, 2007 - The Day that Never Was

Tuesday we woke up with unfinished errands and people to see, and early Wednesday morning we boarded an elderly 747 for Taipei. We were locked in for 13 hours, and for the first two hours I felt claustrophobic, sweating each time the plane was bumped by turbulence. The video screen showed a map of the Pacific Ocean, with a small jet representing us moving over the vast blue, a frightening depiction of how far we were venturing over the open sea, at night. The man next to me struck up a conversation. "Where you go?" he asked in staccato...

Jan 30, 2007 - Reunion in Taipei

We arrived in Taipei on Saturday and have been having an absolutely fantastic time. It's so nice to see friendly, familiar faces after so long and Erin and Brian have been great hosts. We've done a bit of sightseeing, checking out some memorials and Taipei's 101 story building, but really, most of our time has been devoted to some pretty intense socializing. Erin and Brian have a really great bunch of friends and they've all showed us a great time. Our highlight will probably be the 'Denbing' breakfasts - excellent for that post-party...

Jan 17, 2007 - Kuala Lumpur to Taipei

Greetings from the good ol' U.S. of A! Last time we left off from the highlands of Malaysia (here's the link to the archives). This week we make our way back to the U.S. in style, as we board a Malaysia Airlines 747 jet. Once through the cabin door we get to take the cherished left turn into first class. Yeah baby! On the flight home we stop in Taiwan for some quick shopping before hopping the Pacific Ocean. If you want a dream ride (and news about an inexpensive Los Angeles car service), then come aboard. Don't worry if you're in a hurry...

Dec 28, 2006 - Flight #2: Anchorage to Taipei

Our flight began around 3:00am after a LONG check-in process. The computer system for China Airlines was down, and all travelers had to be processed BY HAND! The agents were very patient, and were finally able to get our group processed (even with seats together) for our long eleven-hour flight. They explained that the outage was due to an earthquake that had occured a few hours earlier off the coast of China. It cut telecommunication cables on the ocean floor, resulting in an outage of internet service for several Asian countries. The...

Mar 4, 2006 - Posting from Keelung, Taiwan (Port city for Taipei)

Saturday, March 4, 2006 Keelung, Taiwan (the port city closest to Taipei) I had a tour of Taipei in the morning and then planned to walk around Keelung and look for an Internet café. The tour took us to the Chiang Kai-Shek Memorial Hall for the changing of the guard, then to the "101 Building" (currently the tallest building in the world, but Dubai is supposedly building a taller one) for a picture, and then to the Palace Museum to see the collection of ancient Chinese treasures. This is one of the 4 top museums in the world and has all of...

Norma's World Cruise

Feb 27, 2006 - China - a flash in the pan!

Ok, so I didn't notice on my itinerary/plane ticket that my flight from Korea to Bangkok, Thailand had a stop in Taipei. It did! So, I got to put China (that is China still, right???) on the list of countries visited. As you can see, I'm only taking away one memory from that place...quit my pothead habit - just kidding mother! We were only there for about an hour to drop off and then pick up some people.

Feb 16, 2006 - Taiwan: The stop-over

On my way to YWAM in Australia, my friend Jason and I had a stop over in Taiwan. We were really messed up on sleep depravity, and I was freaking out cause our hotel was 1.5 hours late on picking us up. When we were picked up, some official looking person took off with our passports for 10 minutes. Thankfully, we got to the hotel, and our view over looked an extremely busy intersection-which I watched for a couple hours. Words to sum up the stop over: tired, freaked out, BIG airport, hotel buffet, strange sleep patterns, advertisement...

Jan 30, 2006 - Off to Taiwan

After resting for a day and a half, doing laundry, and eating anything that's not Mexican food, I am getting ready to go to Taiwan for Chinese New Years. It's been two years since I was last there, and I am really looking forward to seeing my relatives and friends and eating some great food! Get ready for some pictures of me eating my way around Taipei...

Marie's Mayan Trip

Oct 20, 2005 - So gate 31B was Taipei and gate 31A was Singapore...

Ok, I didn't atually get on the wrong plane. I just didn't read my ticket correctly. I wasn't aware we'd be stopping here until...well, until the pilot said something about"descent" and "transfer passengers" and "Gate D7" and "stragglers will be stranded and sold into slavery"...Ok, so maybe that wasn't quite what he said but I wasn't really paying attention at first and I was tired. It was 6am here in taipei (where is taipei anyway?)which I think made it mid-January back in Edmonton. Of course there is math involved in that conversion so...
