September has come to an end and while October holds a lot of promise for me, I cannot forget to reflect on the past. Backpacks & Blackboards did quite a bit this month. Here’s a look:
Taipei was still quite warm, so there was lots of fresh juice to be had, interesting shop windows to stroll by, and general relief from the realization that an intense summer teaching schedule was coming to an end (cue jumping!).
As with any season in Taipei, there is always something unique to see. This month, I was able to see the Life Exhibit featuring their “Greatest Photographs of All Time,” to wander around enjoying the unusual architecture and designs of South East Asia, and to delve into these delicious dim sum soup buns. Who can complain with a month like this?
Even the steady summer heat lingering around in September could not keep this Texan from exploring Xindian River and the Bitan Scenic Area. All the heatwaves kept the visitors at bay, meaning a silent spot of green and blue all to myself.
Whether it was sunny days out and about, writing and celebrating a host of my achievements to sharing about news on upcoming projects…
Or spending rainy Taiwanese days reflecting on my most significant journey so far, September was just the right month to show that every thing can and will fall into place.
Dear reader, much love in October! Let’s connect on Instagram this month ♥
