My "no wedding talk" vacation, and why you need one too

Ah, what a few 3,500 meter mountains will do to put everything in perspective. Taiwan is a tiny island, and we are two single expats on it, out of several hundred thousand Westerners, and quite a few more expats from other Asian countries. And yet, as insignificant as I am on this teeming, overpopulated rock, the wedding was taking on ridiculous proportions, overwhelming my life and becoming the center of everything I thought was important. To the point where I wondered what it was like to be someone who didn't really care about The Wedding, or Any Wedding. I am not really the "OMG it's the most specialest day of my liiiife!" kinda girl, so when I realized that I was becoming that girl without actually believing the hype, well, that was doubly worrying.
