Around mid-October I finalized plans to travel and oversee the first production of the NZXT Kraken. It was a simple but an ambitious trip involving just 3 nights in Xiamen China and a quick return home. As the trip grew nearer the more those mere 3 nights felt like a waste of an 18 hour flight, it was then decided that I would add a leg in Taiwan to work in our Taipei team with a few upcoming projects for a week. I had previously been to China and Taiwan a few months back for Computex, it was with a sizable group of coworkers, this was the first real trip I had ever taken on my own. With underpinnings of fear and excitement I managed to contain myself and eagerly boarded the plane for my trip.
