So I got here 3 weeks ago and moved in with my friend that was promising me a good time and plenty of stuff to do. I’ve got a masters in teaching English but I am born in Swedish. I thought it wouldn’t matter but it did, so now I have to lie about my origin or transform my visit to a vacation. Whenever I got a chance for an interview they just asked me where I was from and I just get the standard “not born in america?” phrase and then it’s over.
Anyhow, my friend here got real busy at his new job so his tourguide-plans went away fast. His wife, that was going to help me around, got real sick and wont be helping me out or showing me around either.
I don’t have any friends or even acquintances in Taiwan so basically what I have been doing lately is sitting in my room watching movies and waiting for the time to pass by. I must admit that I’m not a good solo-tourist, looking at buildings and parks, eating new strange food, walking the streets is just not any fun or entertaining when I am on my own.
Now this sounds like a long rant of complaints but I guess I need some advice. Where should I go to meet people? Any good waterholes where typical lost foreigners turn up? Any friendly taiwanese/foreigners that likes to play tourguide?
I’m a real nice guy, very social and friendly. I like music, been a DJ for 10 years, cooking, nice views and adventures. I got a scooter of my own so I’m mobile and I can even read a map, hehe. This sounds like a damn personal ad but dont take it that way, I’m just a bit lost and need some guidance.
