Taiwan Summer (I): “In My Soul”


Last set of classes done, bags packed, key returned and apartment deposit received. The next day I was in Taiwan at a resort in the middle of the mountains of Hsinchu county, going through training for the summer camp that was starting the next day.

The first two weeks, and the last week, I worked at the camps held  in the resort without any visits to the outside world, besides a day trip to a small town called Neiwan. Though not a bad place to be a “prisoner” in (it was after all a resort, with pools, climbing wall, sauna and comfortable beds),  it was filled with kids and did not lend itself for “disconnecting after work” time, or much of alone time.

The third week I was sent to work at a day camp in Tainan city, which was a nice break from the resort life, and a good chance to do a little bit of sightseeing (besides the day spent inside the hotel due to a typhoon). I visited some of the temples, went to the night market for some good food, ate in a couple of  different cafes/restaurants, headed over to the oldest (but remodeled) department store, and checked out the narrow door cafe. And made sure to get all the chocolate/cakes/smoothies I could, in me before heading back to the resort for the last week.

It was a tiring four weeks of chants, dance moves, an excess of duck-duck-goose and some “thinking on my feet” lessons, but enjoyed some good laughter with great people I met and worked with during my time here, and also got a little bit more experience in this new ESL life path I will be on for the time being. So, yeap, looks like  it’s “in my soul” (that one is for my camp coworkers).

Now for some much wanted free time in beautiful Taiwan…
