Our First Sharing Session: Taiping Elementary School

Find My Dream

Recap: We made a promise to Luo Papa during our backpacking trip in October 2009. We promised him that we would return to Taiwan 6 months later to chase his last dream of cycling to all the train stations in Taiwan with him. Because of this promise, “I Believe That Dreams Can Come True” was […]


Dream like a kid – what do you want to be when you grow up?

A note from Val: I had a major writer’s block when trying to pen this entry, because it involves me making a confession – one that I’d hate to admit; and one that you’d not like to hear. Yes, even at this point in my life, even after having passed one year on the road, […]


Helen & Talk Show: What is it that keeps you going?

We left Pine Home with the lesson and reminder, that “There is an Invisible Force out there”. Little did we know that as we left Puli County, that very Invisible Force was already working…and it led us to meet Helen. Helen was a Couchsufer in Taichung. She runs an English learning center, “Talk Show” to […]

The Power Of Sharing

The Power Of Sharing At Puli

We did survive the treacherous mountain ride to Puli; where the parents of our next Couchsurfing host, Crystal, await. Crystal unfortunately could not be home in Puli that weekend; but still went out of her way to explain Couchsurfing to her parents and convince them that we are “good people” so that they would host […]


Slowly but Surely…

And so we left David’s house the next morning, recharged for another day of cycling, the beauty of his works still singing in our hearts. That is, until we came upon the first of the many many long long upward slopes… Shot on Canon by Koh Your spare change, even if it’s just $1, would […]


Dreams Are The Reason We Live

David's Handwritten Poems

“I cannot think of anything better to do with my life.” – David Wood We needed to make a stop between Taichung and Puli; and our Couchsurfing attempt landed ourselves in Cao Tun, at David’s house. David’s couch was the only couch available at Cao Tun, a really really tiny township. What piqued us more […]


A Reminder To Listen To Our Hearts

Jonathan’s sharing with us stirred something within, yet we didn’t really know or understood the lesson fully at that time. And just before he went to bed that night, he passed us Vicky’s number and suggested that we give her a call. “She might have some interesting stories to share with you.” Laying in bed, […]


Cycle across America – Life’s Learnings from a Dream Fulfilled

Many people recommended “Couchsurfing” when they heard about our trip. It is basically an online community, where travellers offer their spare couches to fellow travellers. We grew up with our parents telling us, “Do not talk to strangers. Do not let strangers into the house.” Free accommodation simply because we are fellow travellers? Simply on […]


Take A Chance…

…because no amount of planning can preempt unforeseen circumstances …because everything happens for a reason …because time and space is needed for new beginnings to arise …because nothing is quite as fearful as not knowing what you’ve missed ahead So take a chance we did And acknowledge plans change with time And recognise that every […]

The Meaning Behind Each Journey

People have asked us, and we have asked Luo Papa ourselves, “Why did he want to go on this journey?” And everyday, we understood a little more. “这段逐梦的过程 (This journey to fulfill his (Luo Papa’s) dream) 让他走过以前的岁月 (Has let him retrace his life at the railway) 找回美好的记忆 (Has helped him find those lost memories)” – […]
