Event Recap: RTT Taiwan Day Trip to Wulai

Event Recap: RTT Taiwan Day Trip to Wulai

I want to give a BIG thank you to everyone who showed up to the RTT September event; I couldn’t have asked for a better turnout! The day began with over 20 of us lined up to grab the bus to Wulai. Since there were so many of us we couldn’t fit on the first bus and had to wait to get the next one. Luckily we all fit on the second bus, but had to stand the entire forty minute journey with jerky turns and winding roads.   Stepping of the bumpy bus was a relief, but I found many people asking me, “What do we do now?” I should have warned everyone that this was my first time in Wulai as well, so I was just as clueless as everyone else on where to start. I was saved by the maps and signs guiding novice travelers where to go. The town itself is quaint and charming, surrounded by beautiful mountain views. However, the main road in town is filled with tourist traps—snacks, trinkets, and goodies—but we quickly passed through trying to catch a glimpse of the famous waterfall. Once we made the twenty minute trek uphill to the […]

Reach to Teach Taiwan September Event: Day Trip to Wulai

Reach to Teach Taiwan September Event: Day Trip to Wulai

The past two RTT events have been held at bars around the city, and as much as I love a good night out, I think it’s about time we get the crew together for a day trip! Just south of Taipei, Wulai is a small aboriginal village famous for its hot springs, hiking, and waterfalls. I haven’t been there before, but I’ve been told it’s a must see in Taiwan.   One of the main attractions is the Wulai Waterfall, about a 30-minute walk from the base of the village. Not in the mood to walk? No problem. There’s a gondola that takes you up to the top of the mountain with beautiful views of the waterfall. (NT 220) In addition to the waterfall, there are numerous trails for hiking if anyone’s up for it. Personally, I would love to try a soak in the public hot springs, so bring your bathing suit just in case! And right at the base of the village is an open air market on Wulai Old Street with shops and places to eat.   I will keep an eye out on the weather, but let’s hope for some sun 🙂   WHEN: Sunday, September 18th   MEET: 11:00am at Xindian MRT Station […]

Event Recap: RTT Taiwan August Event at Roxy Rocker

Event Recap: RTT Taiwan August Event at Roxy Rocker

August brought in a bunch of new teachers to Taiwan, making this month’s event full of new faces! Admittedly, I was running late and missed out on all the drama: the first venue lost our reservation, sent us last minute to another bar down the road, and then made the first few people who showed up wait to get in! However, the hassle and last minute venue-change didn’t stop us from having a good time! Listening to Led Zeppelin, ACDC, Jimi Hendrix, and more, the bar had an awesome music selection to compensate for the mix up. It was great to meet and welcome all the new teachers, and to spend the night socializing, listening to great music, and showing off our moves on the dance floor. Many thanks to Carrie for dealing with the hassle of the reservation and making sure we had a good time. Also, thank you for the new Reach to Teach T-shirts; I will be rocking mine all over Taiwan 🙂 Keep an eye out for details of our next monthly event! Cheers, Mary

RTT May event: Thai Beer house and KTV.

A massive thank you to everyone who came out to join us on Saturday night for our May event at the Thai beer house, followed by KTV. It was lovely to see some familiar faces as well as some new ones. From what I can remember it was a great night, thankfully I have some photographs to help piece together the evening! Unfortunately, my memory has not failed me in remembering every single moment of my Michael Jackson ‘Bad’ rendition, complete with moonwalk and thrusting. Oh the shame! Thanks to everyone who came and made the night so much fun! Hope to see you at the next event.

RTT April Event Taiwan: We’re Going Kayaking!

RTT April Event Taiwan: We’re Going Kayaking!

We’re going kayaking! Now I know how much you all love every waking minute of your teaching jobs: those classes you just can’t get through without caffeine, the naughty kids, the piles of homework, the feeling that you might not actually be a teacher at all but a performing monkey/children’s TV presenter. (Ok, maybe the last one’s just me.) So, we thought we would turn the tables, give you a break from teaching and give you the chance to be students again. Kayaking students! So enroll now for a place on our kayaking trip! We’re going kayaking! (Can you tell I’m a little excited about this RTT event?) We’re meeting at 12.00pm at Xindian MRT station then heading down to the riverside to meet our instructors and get cracking, or kayaking even.  The price includes two hours of instruction and all equipment hire, so all you have to do is turn up armed with only your sense of adventure and maybe a towel, in case you fall in! Details: Date: Sunday 24th April Place: Xindian MRT (only one exit) Time: 12.00pm- 3.00pm Stuff to bring: Change of clothes and a towel in case you are a bad student and fall […]
