A Conscious Venture started in August of 2013, when I left upstate New York to teach English as a Second Language in Taiwan. I started on the typical buxiban route and taught at a kindergarten in Taoyuan county for a year. After falling in love with Taiwan, I accepted a full time position as a middle school teacher in Taichung city, central Taiwan.
I blog about living abroad, teaching, education, society, and my own personal experiences from living in Taiwan, and travel to other parts of Asia.
When it comes to education, living abroad, and general life/society pieces, these come purely from my own opinion and experience.
My favorite aspect of Taiwan is its natural beauty and I try to explore it as much as I can. My posts about hiking and the outdoors in Taiwan try to be as factual and informational as possible (with a little personal backstory).
Half outdoor activity blog and half education based blog, I hope you follow along on my adventures both inside and outside of the classroom.
