What better way than to wake up to this view, besides beaches?

I miss the silence and cold fresh air when we stayed at the highest point of Cingjing. Everyone was satisfied and contented with the steamboat dinner & breakfast that comes along with the price we paid. It's cold up there but it's also the "warmest" night of the trip as 8 of us shared a room together for this one night. We can catch sunrise just outside of the balcony, and even stargaze at midnight. Too bad it was very cloudy that night, as much as I love stargazing(I was hoping to try some milky way photography) but I'm not disappointed at all. The weather couldn't have been better for our 10 days in Taiwan, it only started to rain on the last day when we're about to leave to airport. I have absolutely no complaints. :o)

Taichung

台中 • 中社花海

台中 • 薰衣草森林

Apart from the long car ride everyday since early morning until the end of it, I must say it's definitely worth a few minutes stopover at each places just to take photos even the weather is so hot outside(poor Joe got sunburnt from it). I'm a total floral fetish. But it was quite disappointing not seeing these flowers appeared in big and full bloom. :( It's also very sad that tulips festival ended a day before I arrived in Taiwan.

The weather was good and chilly that morning. However we didn't manage to finish til the end of route because we should be leaving to next destination at that time. It was exhausting too as we don't usually workout LOL so.. auto bike? Take all my money please

I came home with the deepest regret that I didn't try to eat as much as I can. I had at least 2 pearl milk tea every day. I've been craving for the very juicy & tender flame-grilled beef cubes sprinkled with rose pink salt ever since. It's so heavenly it literally changed my life! (FYI I don't take beef) To be honest it looks like some stall you would just skip it because the raw beef on the grill looks very unappetising, not until you try it in your mouth; There, you have my word!

Hello Taiwan!

In The Sky

雖然沒辦法實現一年前說好的機車環島之旅,很感恩的機票沒有因為這樣而取消,JOE也願意買機票陪我去(他已經去過兩次);更加慶幸沒在我第一次的台灣行來個機車環島,因為真的真的會很累。
