Meet the Family

For 18 hours fly, we all came down to this moment, meeting the family. This is the first time ZoZo meet A-Gong (Grand Pa) and A-Ma (Grand Ma).

They were tired but very excited!

Ready to Take Off

Ready for Take Off
Originally uploaded by S. Zachko

Hustling through the security check, Waiting hours and hours for the plane, we finally got on the plane and were ready to take off.

It was 1 o'clock in the morning. Kids were exhausted but excited, especially the little one. Since this is her first time to fly, she was holding her (well, actually it is mine) bunny to cover her excitement.

Daddy kept telling the little one that we need to flap our hand to help to take off. I had no idea what Daddy tried to teach her, but surely the little one did not believe this story.

Travelling around a lot since early childhood, I did not enjoy that much because I was just dragged around and had no idea what was going on. I fall in love travelling when I started planning the trip.

Since the trip is for my kids to know the place I grew up FROM THEIR POINT OF VIEW, I really like to know what they wanted to see, to eat, to do. These Post IT notes are great! The whole family just post down their desires. Some to eat lists from my girls are very interesting: the elder one would like to try "Stinky Tofu" while my little one only wanted to have Pasta, French Fry with ketchup!

  • two camera bags

  • two hello kitty backpacks

  • one hello kitty carry on

  • one diaper bag

  • one double stroller

  • Sound terrible, but we survived!

    Why Taiwan?

    Three years old is a special age. It the age when most people have their earliest memory. There are so many places to go, so many people to meet while time is so limited. It is good idea to introduce my kids the place where their mother grew up.

    Trip to the Past

    Besides Food, Taiwan is full of memories and stories. You thought time will wash out lots of places and faces. On the contrary, the unconscious mind draw those places and faces to recover those lost thoughts and feelings. Like a bridge, the trip back to Taiwan shows me the past and shows me the futures as well.
