Recently we went on a trip to Taiwan’s beautiful East Coast, with our 2 good friends Daniel and MacKenzie. Please join with us in this multi-part series!
This is typical of the East Coast. Taiwan has that turquoise blue water that looks so good in photos!
We stopped at a roadside photo opportunity.
Phoenix and Hui-chen take a selfie with that beautiful water behind them.
This is typical of what you might see on Taiwan’s East Coast.
Every visitor has a photograph pretty much just like this one!
Our first stop was this cool homestay place that featured some fun additions to the rooms – like this kid’s slide. Phoenix was ecstatic about this slide! We had shown it to her on the homestay website and she talked about it the whole way there! The good news is that it did not disappoint!
Here she is climbing the stairs that leads to the loft and the slide….
Across this rope-and-plank bridge….
…. and down the slide!
This time with Elsa. That’s her little bed behind, which she loved!
Our friend Daniel took a turn on it.
And so did Mommy!
Later that evening we went to the local permanent Night Market.
This place is really huge!
For those of you who can read Chinese, this is sort-of a racial slur for Western foreigners. But it’s totally acceptable in Taiwan.
These are the beers on tap (never mind the poster “behind” lol!).
Here are the dishes we got. The green vegetables are a local mountain variety.
Phoenix tries shooting some baskets.
This is a live stream video that I did from the Night Market. Watch this video to get a feel of what it’s like to take a walk around this huge place!
The local air force base had some Mirage jets doing exercises the next morning.
This is the outside of the house. The owner has tinkered it together over 6 years. It really stands out and it’s quite nice inside.
The last shot of this installment. This article is geotagged with the location of this homestay.
HC, Phoenix and I just got back from a wonderful trip to Bali! Look for articles about that trip soon! Thanks for reading!
