About this project

Sun, 17 Apr 2016 06:10:03 PDT

(image) One day I watched a foreigner being interviewed by a television news reporter while exiting customs in CKS Airport; she said she couldn’t find any tourism information about Taiwan in all of the traveling agencies in her country. That’s when I came up with the idea of doing this podcast, I like to introduce this interesting island, especially from a foreigner's perspective.


我看到一則電視新聞,一位外籍旅客在中正機場的出境大廳接受訪問,她說在她的國家裡,完全找不到任何台灣觀光團的行程或資訊,使我開始有了製作"What's up in Taiwan"的想法。

“Male Bonding” is the topic of this week, and it could exist no matter what country or culture you’re from. Travis and Vega have been friends for years, and they are honestly two of the nicest guys to hang out with, very well mannered and incredibly easy going. Just when you think that there is too much testosterone when two guys are running this podcast, it gets worst in this interview.

Many of the foreigners in Taiwan prefer to stay in the big cities when they visit , but there are exceptions. Catherine is a young lady from Florida; she actually asked the school she works for to send her to somewhere remote in Taiwan, brave girl. Her meeting with her Taiwanese friend Miranda was like destiny, they became real close friends and taught English and shared their lives together. Catherine will leave the island very soon and move on to her next destination, but we are sure that their friendship will not fade no matter where their futures might take them.

Like many of our loyal listeners, Feelin has set up a link in her personal blog to our podcast. We tracked back as always and noticed that she has a great spirit for adventure. Feelin enjoys sailing with her foreigner friend Chris, who introduced her to the sport. We wanted to interview Chris immediately and thought this would be a great chance to talk about friendships between locals with our guests to the island. After the interview, we truly understood why certain things between people have absolutely no boundaries.
