Rewind to the summer of 2016.We had a week off from work for vacation. Time is precious so we decided not to waste it. I concocted a plan with my partner in crime to escape from our mundane lives.Taipei, Taiwan became our destination and the rest is history….

It was a short flight, around 2 hours from Korea to Taiwan. We landed after midnight, took a taxi with a guy who seemed to be an ex-NASCAR driver and made our way to our airbnb. Our host was very hospitable and showed us all the in and outs of where we would be staying for the next six days. Sadly I lost the pictures I had taken of the airbnb but it was sooooooo nice. Lots of space, really clean and quiet.

We spent our days exploring Taipei and even ventured out to Taichung and Jiufen. We visited Taipei 101, Elephant Mountain, night markets, arcades, a bathroom themed cafe that I also lost the pictures to, Rainbow Village in Taichung, the stunning old streets of Jiufen, the Golden Waterfalls, and the Ying Yang sea. The sun was scorching, the people were charming, and the beef noodle soup was absolutely divine.

The last day of our trip was spent on the northern coast of Taiwan, staring out into the Pacific…. wondering where to go next…………..
