Hey Folks!

Do you have any questions, comments or ideas? Maybe you have a travel photo or essay you would like to submit to be considered for Photo of The Week or for a guest blog entry? Or perhaps you just wanna say hi. Regardless of the reason, I always love to hear from fellow travelers, expats, and citizens of Planet Earth. If you are keen to share, please email me at

  1. Hi Jenna,

    I currently teach in Taoyuan county in the north, outside of Taipei. I would really like to move to Kaohsiung next year and have already started to job hunt a little. I was wondering what type of school you work for?


  2. Hi! I am currently living in Kaohsiung. I just arrived February 7th so am still adjusting. Let me just please tell you how very happy I am to stumble across this blog. Seriously, your help and insight is invaluable! Thanks soooooo much! I do have a question about where you worked. I am looking for a kindergarten job in Kaohsiung. Any recommendations? ❤
    P.S. I am a little sad to see that you have left Kaohsiung because I wanted to be friends. 🙂

    Hi Jenna,
    I’m so glad I found your blog! Especially now, since I’m looking for someone with a first hand experience working as a teacher/living in Taiwan. I’m currently working as a teacher trainee for an IELTS institute in Kerala, which is great, but I’ve started thinking about my next move. The thing is, I’m an EU passport holder, but not a native English speaker and so far I haven’t found any information on wheather it is possible to get a working visa as an English teacher in Taiwan. Do you know anything about that?
    Thank you 😀 Have a nice day!

    • Hello Sanja,

      You could probably find a job, but probably not one that will sponsor you for a Visa. One option is for you to come to Taiwan (you get a 3 month travel visa free upon arrival) and try to find work. If you don’t find a job that sponsors you for a visa, you can just leave the country every 3 months and return. Many people do it this way. Hope this was helpful! Good luck, Jenna
