關於我部落格

In short, I write about unique experiences in Taiwan that become travel insights for you, who are curious and like to venture deeper.

If you like abandoned buildings, outdoor and urban exploration, but also want to read about design, events, local encounters, and the occasional awkward cultural nuances of living in Taiwan, then this might be the mixed-bag of a blog for you.

一般來說這個部落格是我自己在台灣的經驗,可以為好奇台灣的你們提供一些資訊.

如果你想要更了解台灣,喜歡在廢墟取景拍照,戶外和市區的活動,或是要看設計,體驗在地生活,以及我在台灣生活適應在地文化的經驗,那這部落格可能適合你。

inspirations
靈感

I came to Taiwan on a whim, thanks to some cheap airfares and the motivation to discover a place no one seems to know about. Then a trip to Yangmingshan, a Taoist temple on a rainy night, and the views of Taiwan’s east coast led to consecutive annual trips and a strong motivation to understand this place and its people I keep coming back to. After four years, I decided to stay in Taiwan for good, studying Chinese and living the free and good life as a professional turned student. Life in Taiwan kept me exploring more and more to the point it could only be described as an obsession.

拜便宜的機票所賜以及想要探索一個好像沒有人知道的地方,我來到台灣,那年,我曾在台灣爬過陽明山,曾在雨夜時參觀一個道教寺廟,也曾看過台灣東海岸的風景,我很想要了結這個國家以及這個國家的人們,這些都是使我在台灣旅行一整年的動力.四年後,我決定成為一個學生,留在台灣學中文,開始我在台灣自由自在的生活.在台灣生活使我更進一步地探索台灣,你也可以說我是一個著迷於探索台灣的人。

who’s Q?
Q是誰?

Q is for Quyen, and I hail from Adelaide, a relatively small and quiet town in the south of Australia. I was a government officer by trade, but nature had me seeking a life of travelling light. Since being in Taiwan, I’ve turned a hobby into a career and am now a freelance copy writer, content strategist, and photographer.

Q 就是 Quyen (越南話翻譯來是杜鵑)。我來自南澳洲一個名叫阿德萊德的小城市,我之前當公務員,但我心裡一直嚮往著輕裝旅行的生活,自從我在台灣居住後,我就將我的興趣變成我的職業,現在我是一個作家以及攝影師。

translations
有關翻譯

Keeping in mind that I have only completed one year of formal Chinese studies, I will be translating only short articles for now (namely 100 anecdotes). Please don’t hesitate to correct my Chinese if you see any off, nonsensical words and sentences. This is as much a platform for me to learn, as it is to show readers Taiwan!

我只學過一年的中文課程,我現在只能翻譯小文章(亦即100軼事)。如果你看到我的中文有哪裡不對,請通知我喔。這部落格除了是一個顯示給台灣讀者的平台,也能為我帶來學習的機會!
