I’ve now been stateside for a few days. I am exhausted and happy.
Thanks to good friends, I have been picked up from airports, dropped off at airports, and given a place to shower, sleep, and catch up; even a toothbrush!
So as an ode to Taiwan here is a picture fest of some great moments and places in Taiwan.
Part 1 is dedicated to my Taiwan family; William, Wendy, Tim (Kent), Jordan, Grandma, and all the Aunts, Uncles, and Cousins that made my stay so incredible. Without them I wouldn’t have gone to Taiwan. I wouldn’t have learned about this wonderful country. I wouldn’t have seen as much. I wouldn’t have enjoyed as much. They welcomed me in and I am very grateful!
Arriving and first days
My first sightings of traffic, the amazing water displays, and the 101 building
My first understanding of just how much people in Taiwan eat at one time! I learned my first phrase, how to say “I’m full”
Awesome structures, gates, and Morning Markets
First hikes, nature, and beautiful sculptures
First visit to Wulai, crafting, day markets and learning about aboriginal culture, super awesome!
Night markets, more food, and family fun
My first New Year in Taiwan
More coming soon!
