How we spent a weekend in Kaohsiung: coast line drives, monkeys, + Star Trek

Stellar Weekend in Kaohsiung Eric Star Trek Chair

There are so many wonderful hole in the wall places and alleyways to explore in Tainan, that we’ve spent the past month biking around without leaving the city. It’s amazing how long you can stay in one place and never even scrape the surface of its true culture! I love the luxury of taking my time to get a feel for a city and, if I could, I’d visit every city this way.

Even so, we happily welcomed the change of pace in going to visit Eric’s dad last weekend in Kaohsiung (Eric’s dad does work in Taiwan and the US). We hopped on the TRA slow train from Tainan to Kaohsiung and enjoyed the little things along the way…

Snack time before the train comes. #hungryhippo #sparrows

How I Overcame Harassment in France

Guest Post by Shelly Enright

Voyaging to new lands is never easy.

When I first moved to the south of France, I had to get used to a lot of new things.

Between the customary cheek kisses upon greeting someone, buying a fresh baguette everyday, and having to find ways to pass the time until the drunk couple fighting in the street cools down so I can leave my apartment and go to class, the hardest thing to adjust to is what it’s like to walk down the street.

New Boyish Chic challenge: How to make the most of a limited wardrobe

Thinking about ideas for Boyish Chic lately, I’ve realized it’s taken on a new spin: Eric and I have been faced with the challenge of looking stellar while living out of a backpack. Sometimes, it’s more difficult than it sounds (like when I get tired of the same things and start to miss the hell out of my closet back home). But, styling a limited wardrobe has also been a fun experiment in making the best out of what little we have and finding out how many different ways we can wear the same thing without looking like we don’t do laundry.

Our daily backpack: what to bring for a day of adventure.

Eric and I have gotten into a routine of what to bring each day while we venture around cities and beaches on our southeast Asia trip. We’ve decided on a backpack because it’s easiest to carry, distributes weight well, carries a lot, and works for riding scooters, walking in the rain, or just being out and about.

For a daily adventure, on average, here’s what we pack: Continue reading Our daily backpack: what to bring for a day of adventure.
