Recently got back from Taiwan. What an awesome place. What struck me first was how lovely Taiwanese people are – really welcoming and super helpful. Then there is the awesome food, which merits its own paragraph below. Ladies, Taipei is also awesome for shopping. I totally overindulged my partiality for scarves in Ximending and the night markets, preferring Shida to Shilin for clothes. Whenever you need a pit stop, temples abound. And to top it all off, in October the weather was simply…awesome!
