In July 2012, we moved from Seattle to Hsinchu City, Taiwan with nothing but four big suitcases and a guitar case. Since then, our lives have changed dramatically. 

Now we own two scooters instead of two cars.
Now we jet set often-ish and explore new corners of the world!
Now we eat way too many pork buns and so much beef noodle soup.
Now we don't have a dishwasher/dryer/oven and have creatively adapted.
Now we are very slowly learning to speak & understand Chinese. 
Now we have a silly Taiwanese mountain dog named Bubu.
Now we have an adorable daughter and are navigating expat parenthood. 
Now we really miss our families & friends back home, but we've also made a little family here from all the friends we've gained while on this journey!

This expat lifestyle is not for everyone, and it's definitely not perfect or a fairy tale. If there is one thing moving abroad has taught us, it's that life is life no matter where you live.
