As I continue catching up on our trip back in February (yikes!), it’s time to talk about Taiwan. There’s really no reason this post got so far behind as it was actually the shortest part of our trip – we were only in Taipei for about 36 hours! We had decided to stop here because to get from Tokyo to Vietnam you could either take an expensive flight with a long layover, or a cheap short flight to Taipei and a second cheap short flight onward to Hanoi. We decided on the latter and got a tiny taste of Taiwan.
As many of you know, Tommy and I had a month-long holiday for the Chinese New Year. Actually, I had a two-month holiday because my school is like, super hardcore about prepping students for exams – woohoo! Anyways, we spent our time off travelling through East and Southeast Asia, trying to see as many highlights of this amazing continent as we could before returning for the second semester. In four weeks, we visited 10 cities in 6 different countries! We feel so blessed to have had such an incredible trip. Now that we’re back in Sinan, I’ll be working on posts for each of the cities and hopefully sharing at least one per week. In the meantime, here is a quick run-down of our trip highlights!
