Sunlit Valley of Tienshiung in Taroko Gorge

Taroko Gorge

This photo was taken in one of those rare moments that come along once in a blue moon.

We spent two full days exploring Taroko Gorge under cloudy, rain-filled skies. I managed to capture a brief break in the clouds that lasted as long as it took to take this photo. I didn’t even know what I had until I got home and looked at my photos.

I'm a chronically ill Canadian who has been living in Taiwan since 2006. I'm a bit of a jack of all trades! I love art, gardening, flower arranging, reading (that's an understatement if you've seen my GoodReads profile), and snuggling with my cats. Animal videos make me cry. I hate cooking. Nothing makes me happier than seeing my garden bloom! Learning about new cultures and exploring the world has been my thing since I started traveling at age 19. A self-professed autodidact, I can speak comfortably on many different subjects and hold a special place in my heart for science, technology, law, health and medicine, and history. You can find me nerding out at home most of the time due to being chronically ill and housebound. If I'm not engaged in one of the activities listed above, I'm probably building websites. Check my About page under Carrie Kellenberger to learn why I'm taking you on this journey with me through My Several Worlds. I can't wait to get to know you better!

    hey Carrie!
    long time, no talk. i love that photo. i gotta take Catherine to those parts, looks very relaxing.
    i liked reading the post about the health-care system in Taiwan…i have been espousing the merits of the system to anyone that will listen here in the US. it’s shocking how many people are skeptical about nationalized medicine.
    good stuff.
    i hope you continue to feel better,

    Hi David,

    I can’t believe you’re still reading blogs when you’re supposed to be sucking up love and attention back home for the next year. I hope you’re enjoying your Mom’s home cooking. I bet Catherine is dying to see you again. I know we are. Everyone misses you! Give us a call when you’re back so we can all get together.
