As my last post of 2019, I wanted to say Happy Holidays to everyone. Hope you had a great year, and here’s to 2020 being even better! Now, at the end every year, in between celebratory champagne and the New Year’s Eve countdown, Wanderer and I always love to reflect back on everything that happened during the year.

“Duìbùqǐ. Bùhǎoyìsi“ (I’m so sorry. So embarrassed). This was by far the most common phrase I heard in Taipei, Taiwan. No matter how bizarre or ridiculous my request was.

Where’s my life going? What’s the point of all this? My brain was a broken record player. Play. Pause. Repeat. Play. Pause. Repeat. […]

Continuing on from last week’s post, today we will be going over Part 2 of Millennial Revolution’s Guide to Travelling as a Couple And Not Killing Each Other!
