December 31st: medical tourism

[Editorial note: This has been edited to about half the size it was originally. Eeek!]

December 30th: Debbie’s arrival in Taiwan

[This is one post of a series which recaps the travels of Debbie and I in Taiwan.]

The past two weeks or so

The past two weeks have been interesting. Debbie and I have traveled all around the island of Taiwan. I was just not interested to keep posting to my blog as we were traveling. I find that the funky twittering and Web 2.0 instant posting fad detracts from really living in the moment. At the end of each day, I kept notes so that I would not forget what happened during our trip. These notes will form the basis of future posts on this blog about our adventures around Taiwan.

For now, you can check out a map of our travels I created with Google maps. It is not finished but is usable.

Stay tuned for future updates. (NB: posts about our travel will be posted in the same categories as this post.)
