We are packed and ready to go. Our flight for Taipei, Taiwan leaves in four hours. The nice thing about flying to Taipei from Vancouver is the flight leaves at 2:20AM in the morning and it’s one of only two flights going out at that hour. That means it only take 10 minutes or less to go through check in and security. That being said, we still like to show up about two hours before flight time – just in case.
Last year, the sport bar at the airport had an open wireless hot spot. If that is still the case, I’ll make another update from there. If not, the next update from me will be from the other side of the world (and no doubt at a really strange time).
Joining me for Computex Taipei this year is my wife Sarah. This will be her first trip to Republic of China (not to be confused with the People’s Republic of China). She is looking forward to seeing the world’s tallest building. Fellow Vancouver blogger and tech site owner, Stephen Fung, is also making the trip across the pond as well.
We’ll be meeting up with other tech site owners at our Pre-Computex media party happening at the Tavern on Monday. The Tavern was where Stephen and I consume large amounts of Hoegaarden beer and lost count of the shooters. Hopefully, Stephen will pace his drinking this year or he may end up dancing on the bar with another sweaty man.
See you on the other side of the world!
