Meeting with Red Bull

We met with Red Bull last night and they said they have some projects in mind that they want us to film. The first project is mid January so I think Todd and I will try to make it back to Taiwan to film for a few days.

We are heading back to the states today. We finally got the document Grace needed and got our plane tickets figured out.

Stuck in Taiwan

We were supposed to be heading home today but for some reason Taiwan didn't want us to leave just yet. As we were checking in, the airline told us that Grace wouldn't be able to fly because she didn't apply for a visa for China where we were transferring planes. At first, the employees and manager were being difficult and wouldn't help us find another solution. After hours of frustration, a lady who is a travel agent, came to the counter to drop off some papers for the employees. She heard about our situation and unlike the employees that actually worked there, she offered to help us. She found a way to get Grace's documents by tomorrow night then took us back to Taipei on the bus. We are definitely lucky she stopped to help us. For the next 2 or 3 nights we will be staying at Grace's house.

On the plus side, I checked our email after we got back from the airport and we got an email from Red Bull! They want to meet with us tomorrow at 5pm to possibly discuss future video projects for next year.
At the airport, I randomly ran into one of my friends on Instagram (a phone app)
that was getting on the same plane.We've never met before, but she recognized me from my pictures. Such a small world.

Goodbye Taiwan

Today is our last night in Taiwan. I am definitely going to miss this place. This year and half has gone by so fast. Everything we were able to do out here has been amazing and unreal. It has been one of the best experiences and I learned a lot. It is going to be hard to leave it all behind. I will miss all the friends we made out here and hope to come back and see everyone again.

Trip to Kaohsiung 高雄

Last Thursday Todd and I went down to Kaohsiung to say goodbye to our friends and try to do some filming in different locations. The bus we took down there was ok, but on the way back we decided to drop the extra $200NT and take a nicer bus back. It felt like we were sitting first class.

Today we met up with our friends in Taipei to see some of them before we go. Our cousin also came up from 嘉義 to see us as well.

Parents Visit To Taiwan

Our parents came to visit us last week for 10 days. During their visit we were able to make a trip to Jiayi 嘉義 to visit family and then went to Hualian 花蓮 for a day to see Toroko Gorge. They left back to the US a couple days ago but we will be seeing them again in 9 days when we head back home.
