It’s been a while, and a lot has happened. A good news is that I was able to find an affordable apartment in the new city I recently moved to, and started Annie’s Place for real on Airbnb.
Before moving, I was able to host a few travelers in my hometown to see how I feel about running a BnB/homestay. The result was comforting. It was an experience like no others to meet travelers from around the world, and listen to their stories of adventures. It was like bringing a piece of the world to me. Needless to say, it calmed my travel bugs a bit so I can stay more grounded to save. After the experimental trial, I thought, why wait? I may not have my ideal house in my ideal location right now, but that should not stop me from moving closer to my dream. Other than that, I’ve finally completed my TCSOL (Teaching Chinese to Speakers of Other Languages) homework last weekend. At first, I was going to wait til I have the chance to leave Taiwan before enrolling in the program. Long story short, I decided to stop waiting once moving to another city became certain. And here I am, 2 months later, with Annie’s Place listed online and ready to teach Chinese.
So, if anyone’s interested in visiting Taiwan. Annie’s Place is open for you.
