Our Australia vacation was quite the adventure. And like any true adventure it had its highs and its lows. Since I’m a bad news first, good news second kind of gal I’ll cover the low part first.
During the end of our time in Australia we both caught the flu from a friend. I fought it for several days but it dug its claws in and put me in rough shape.
My eyes were so red I looked possessed! A doctor in Singapore filled me up with medications and told me to stay in my hotel room. The trouble was my ear drums were in danger of rupturing if I flew so I had to rest up to recover enough that I could fly back to Taiwan. My trip to Singapore can be summarized by this photo
which is the view out of our hotel room. It was a long three days of self-quarantine. Josh was feeling better so was able to explore the city and visit with friends. He brought me back delicious Singaporean food-a mango coconut rice dessert was my favorite. While visiting our friend Trust he got interviewed about Formosa Moon. The Taiwan News ran an English translation of the article.
Inspired by our soon to be released book they created a Top 7 list of books about Taiwan.
As for our book, Formosa Moon comes out October 1st. You can pre-order it here.
I’ll cover the awesome parts of our vacation next post.
