After one day spending at the airport, inclusive of 5-hour flights from Hanoi to Ho Chi Minh City and from Ho Chi Minh City to Taipei and a 8-hour wait in between, I finally made it to Taiwan, the place that I have already mentioned more than once in my blog and my friends (my colleagues, my friends at university, the two sisters of acquaintance, etc.) get fed of hearing at my intention of spending a period of my life living in Taiwan. And as I hate keeping them hearing about my excuse for delaying it, I realize this intention this year by applying for Huayu Enrichment Scholarship this year and fortunately, being entitled to a 3-month course offered by National Chengchi University. As it is my very first trip abroad on my own, I am so excited about the trip and find it difficult to sleep some days before my flights to Taiwan and on my first steps on the Taoyuan Airport, I just feel like Alice in Wonderland. I have thought of writing about my daily life in Taiwan in the next three months, not kind of travel journal or travel guide but simple reflection of my life during the next three months.
