Yes, we went “camping” again at the same place in Nantou.  I say “camping” because if you’ve read the previous articles, what passes for camping in Taiwan just isn’t quite what we did back in the USA.  But it was fun just the same.  In this installment we’re going to concentrate more on the food than previously.

Here’s the setup: Charcoal burning in a square grill with a quad-pod in the background, ready to hang a Dutch oven.  Nothing bad can follow that!

The Sigma lens is back in action.  The strange thing is that the tech checked out the lens and found nothing wrong with it.  That means it’s the photographer that has the problem!  But, they did match the lens to my D7000 and it only took about 40 minutes.  If you have a Sigma lens, I recommend that you let them perform this free-of-charge service.  You’ll see below that it makes a big difference!

Geotagged photos by MJ Klein

 

I can’t believe I’m so far behind in my blogging!  I’m going to try to catch up over the next few weeks.

In early fall, we went to the beach with our longtime blog reader/commentator Stefan, and his family.

A Day at Baishawan Beach

At Stefan’s suggestion, we went to Baishawan Beach, which is Pinyin for “white sand beach” in the Guanyin Mountain Scenic Area of Taiwan’s North Coast.  You can click on the photo and go to the Flickr page and view a larger size if you want to read the map.  Also, the photos are geotagged so you can see where they were taken.  This article is also geotagged so you can view the location on our Geotagged Articles Map.

Our Trip To Neiwan

We’ve been to Neiwan before, but this was Phoenix’s first trip there – in fact it was her first time on a train (sorry I’m so far behind in my blogging!)

Our Visit to Nantou, Part Two

Picking up where we left off on our last installment, we went to this place to spend the night.  We’ll show you the room we stayed in, and then you’ll understand why we ended up staying here for 2 nights, instead of one!  The English name is “The Solas.”

Recently, my wife and I took Phoenix to the famous Flying Cow Ranch.  Even though it was a weekend and crammed with people, we had a good time, and Phoenix got to interact with some animals.

Our Visit to Nantou, Part One

Let me tell you how this happened.  My wife asked me to drive her to Nantou, to a famous temple, which of course, I did.  While we were there, we visited her cousin, who owns a dental clinic there.  Since I have been suffering from a new medical problem that has cropped up, my wife’s cousin was very interested in examining me.  This visit has turned into several visits for followups.  So, without any previous planning, we found ourselves in Nantou on several occasions, and here is what we did on those occasions, broken into segments.  We’d never been to Puli before, so that’s where we decided to go.

Before I forget, clicking on any photo will take you to the Flickr page where you may view or d/l larger sizes.  The vast majority of these photographs are geotagged, as is the article itself.

 

Our Visit to Nantou, Part One

This is our room on the first night of our stay.  Phoenix just loves traveling (like her parents) and she was very excited to look around the room.

We took Phoenix to the beach here in Taiwan, for the first time.

Phoenix Goes to the Beach

We had bought her some new toys for playing with sand, and we wanted to show her how to use them.  Once we filled up the wheelbarrow and showed her how to dig in the sand, she started enjoying herself.

Day five of my Thailand visit was rather uneventful.  I had some time to kill waiting for Mr. Somkhit to become available the next day.  I wanted to do something but I also wanted to not spend a lot of time traveling and I was sick of buses by this time.  So, I walked around Khonkaen.

Thailand 2012, Day Five

First thing in the morning, Oath and his girlfriend took me to a noodle shop in Udon Thani before taking me to the bus station for my trip back to Khonkaen.
