S/V Hello World's Travel Log

business trip to Taipei? Yes please!

Better late than never, but 6 months after this awesome trip, here are some pictures! (I had to beat Jason's post about Romania)

I've never seen so many mopeds in my life.

At every intersection, there is a special area that the mopeds are all allowed to cut in front of the cars

Resulting in what sounds like a moped gang at every green light

Temples were everywhere and just gorgeous

Candles, chanting...

Flowers of sacrifice were beautiful

Some of the coolest trees ever

I got a chance to go to the National Museum - my favorite part of which were the gardens

But by far the best part of the entire trip was my last day there. A very good friend of the family grew up in Taiwan and hooked me up with two of her good friends that still live there - they took an entire Saturday to drive me around outside of the city and we had an absolute blast!

First stop was a national park called Yehliu which had some spectacular natural sandstone sculptures, including one called Queens Head that busses upon busses of Chinese tourists stop to see!

Yeah, we stood in that line

New blog!

You may have noticed the glaring lack of posts on this blog as of late. We've been pretty preoccupied with the land, so we've decided to start a new blog to expose our adventures and follies of building. Please join us at http://andermentranch.blogspot.com/

(we're not giving up on this blog, but I'm not promising anything either!)
