Been back almost a week now. Just getting back into the swing of things, sleeping, cleaning, shopping and working.
It takes a while, forgot all those passwords, what I do, how I do it. Surprising how slow it is to remember some things yet cycling to work has been oddly easy. Perhaps all the walking we did kept strength in my legs – it certainly didn’t do a lot for all the food I was eating. So much of it and so nice.
Quite easily the most enjoyable time we have had in Taiwan. May be it is having the kids grow up or just feeling more at home their or even understanding more Chinese than I used to, which is only thanks to my daughter who is totally fluent now with a great accent too.
A couple of days before we left I was chatting to a mummy in the park, she lived in Canada previously although born in Taiwan, where she had been working for the last two years. The opportunities she mentioned were quite eye opening. She even offered to introduce me but I was leaving two days later and then she was off to China to work on a new business project. Shocked I could earn more in Taiwan than here in the UK (and also get to learn Chinese which is one of my person goals.)
May be after a few weeks the dream will fade?
