Since we won’t be traveling for the next couple of years, we have decided to spend our time, energy, and dollars in another way…
Recently we joined the American Club Taipei – a country club style organization dedicated to “camaraderie, sports, entertainment, relaxation and a range of high quality dining options.”
So far, so good.
Having a baby in Taiwan is an incredible experience – the perfect combination of high quality and low prices.
First we had 20 days in a postpartum center aka a luxury baby hotel. Then we had 20 days of in-home rent-a-Grandma.
After 2 weeks completely on our own, we have formally entered Stage 3… we hired a full-time nanny.
We recently welcomed our 2nd child into the world. Mom, baby, and big brother are doing well.
Here are a few obligatory baby photos, and for those interested, a cost breakdown and overview of a Taiwan birth and luxury postpartum experience.
Having a public image can be challenging. Having one based on falsehoods, even more so.
Well, it is finally upon us: The inevitable recession that comes after every expansion and the corresponding stock market downturn. And oh boy is it a doozy.
Is this the end of early retirement?

As a contrast, this is what life is like in Taiwan – first person and anecdotally.
