In beginning this blog, I feel I need to go to back in time, and visit a place that changed my perspective on the world forever. I have traveled mainly in the US, since the age of 19 (33 now). This time last year, one of my best friends invited me to accompany him back to Taiwan. He taught English back in his college years, and was heading back to visit old friends.
One friend that should be noted later, was his host mom, whom had one of the most vibrant, welcoming personalities I have ever known.
This is a food and travel blog, with an emphasis on food, however the people tend to be the ones that meld it all together. Taiwan was my first travel experience, that took me beyond the boarders of North America.
Most people usually go to London, Canada or someplace easy for their first experience, but through my best friend telling me stories about Taiwan for several years, I knew this was the opportunity I could not pass up.
This city changed my life, changed my career & bolstered my love for food and culture.
Welcome to my Journey, and this Journey starts with Taiwan.
I travel the world documenting local life, which often includes local food, culture and the like. I have always done this on my own, sharing with friends etc… however I love it so much, that I decided to share with everyone else. When people travel, they usually want to know place to go, places to try, what to do. As I pass through various cities, I will attempt to document my findings here. Take note… I don’t talk about places that I don’t like, or have had a bad experience. I feel sometimes establishments simply have a bad day, and sometimes need time to get a good things in order. I certainly hope you enjoy this page, and you can also follow me on my instagram: @keeptheeats or my Facebook!
I plan to start talking about my Travels to Taiwan, which really opened up the world to me. Taiwan with their spirited, engaging people & culture is a great place to start experiencing travel. It is easy to get around, the people are friendly & the food is amazing & may slowly get you outside of your comfort zone. Stay tuned as I take you on my journey through Taiwan.
