Going to Taiwan - Take One!

In one hour I get to head to airport to pick up Joshua. He has been in Texas for 2.5 weeks dealing with restaurant issues and I am so glad to get him home. Number One: I miss him! Number Two: We have a lot to do!

I've been reading through our old blog posts from 2008 before our trip to Europe and thinking about how much prep we did for that trip. Here we are with a trip to Taiwan looming in our future and we haven't done anything to think about it. Plus, at the end of the trip to Taiwan we don't just have memories, we have our son.

We aren't going to do a "nursery" per say but we do want to put together a room that sort of matches so we should probably get on that. We also need to learn/acquire cloth diapers since we have decided not to spend the money or the room in landfills on 2 years worth of diapers. Luckily we've had people give us lots of other baby accouterments so we aren't totally unprepared but we are far from ready. Then on top of all the baby prep there's the actual travel in a country which Rick Steve's has probably never been. Most of the couchsurfers don't speak English so we're gonna be pushing it a little bit with that type of lodging. Plus we have to pack for 2 adults and an infant.

It will all work out but when there is a chance we could be leaving in October I think the end of August is a slow start on this one. Expect updates here on "nursery" and travel progress.

Keep us honest Internet!
