In every country that I went to, I made it a point to see the city from a different point of view. For my trip to Taipei, it would have been against tradition not to do the same.
Here's my review of the Travel Talk Taipei Backpackers' Hostel, the hostel that I stayed at for my 4-day trip to Taipei!
For as long as I can remember, I have always been a dog person. Never in my life did I tell myself or my parents, that I wanted a cat for a pet. Cats scare me. Just look at those soul piercing eyes or the killer claws that could tear through all the layers of my skin. So it was quite a surprise that I had the courage (and energy) to go to the little cat village in Houtong.
Ever since I posted about my trip to Taipei, ads on the admirable country have strategically popped up whenever I scroll through my facebook feed. Whenever I see them the only thought that forms in my head is, "I hope other people are seeing this," because they should know how stunning Taipei is!
A former, almost forgotten gold mining town, modern day Jiufen has transformed itself into one of the most visited tourist destinations in Taiwan. This comes as no surprise, as the energy from hawking food vendors and shuffling tourists is a cultural experience of its own - one that you wouldn't want to miss.
I've just come back from my 4 day-3 night getaway to Taipei (lol that sounded like a rap), and I've somehow managed to bring back half of the Taiwan Dollars that I brought with me for my trip. Thankfully so, because the amount of moolah I had to give up for my flight coming home…
So here we are, just a day and a half more before my scheduled flight to Taipei. You know my struggles, and you're about to read more. The good news is, I have my passport! The bad news is, i had to let go of and will (still) soon shell out a few more bucks…
