I’ve really enjoyed my time as a blogger here at Wanderlust and Lipstick.
But alas, the time has come for me to move on. I returned home to the Chicagoland area from Asia one year ago and have been busy with my new job as a staff writer, managing my travel blog network, and frankly—life itself. It’s amazing how fast time tends to fly by these days and I feel I must focus my energies on goals here at home.
Taking on new adventures such as learning how to ski!
While I do hope to get back overseas one day soon, the Taiwan chapter of my life has come to an end. By no means is it forgotten.
I would like to return for a visit in the near future as well as maybe write a book about the two years I spent in the country. I’m sad to be leaving Bamboo Boulevard behind but I hope the information I’ve shared about Taiwan proves valuable to someone out there.
I want to say thank you to Beth, Lauren, and everyone else at Wanderlust and Lipstick for the chance to get to know and write with so many interesting people. It’s been an honor working with everyone and sharing our love of travel.
I wish everyone the best of luck in their global journeys—present and future.

I’ll sign off with these two great travel quotes:
“Perhaps travel cannot prevent bigotry, but by demonstrating that all peoples cry, laugh, eat, worry, and die, it can introduce the idea that if we try and understand each other, we may even become friends.” – Maya Angelou
“All travel has its advantages. If the passenger visits better countries, he may learn to improve his own. And if fortune carries him to worse, he may learn to enjoy it.” – Samuel Johnson4 comments
