About the author


Hi! I’m Mariza. A South African living and working in Taiwan. My love for traveling and sharing my travels with others sparked the creation of this blog. When I’m not traveling, I’m planning my next trip. Or at least dreaming about that next hit-list destination. I hope that my blog will inspire other like minded travellers to never stop exploring. Even if we are juggling life, work and all things grown-up…

If you are interested in learning more about life in Taiwan or my travels in Asia and beyond, then please join me on my adventures. To learn more about Hoponworld don’t forget to subscribe to the blog and follow us on Facebook, Pinterest, Instagram and Twitter to get the latest updates and posts.
