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.

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.

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.

I took some of my Chinese language classmates out for lunch the other day.  Where did we go?  To Xiao-hui’s!

Lunch After Class

When we arrived there was very loud karaoke going on inside, so we opted to sit outside.  It turned out to be a good choice because the weather was just beautiful!

The First Part Of Our Trip

I used to have a wood smoker back in New Hampshire, and I have missed smoking foods in Taiwan (although I do have a smoker in Thailand).  We went in halves with my sister and her husband and picked up this Brinkmann smoker at Home Depot.  I got to use it quite a few times during our visit.  We’ll show you what we put in the smoker shortly.

Recently, Hui-chen and I celebrated our 3rd wedding anniversary.  We decided to spend it at the newly-built Sheraton hotel in Jubei.

Sheraton Weekend

The room we stayed in was on the 21st floor.  That is the top floor for rooms.  There is a club on the 22nd floor for the exclusive use of guests on the 20th and 21st “club level” floors.  Our room was luxurious and spacious.
