Taiwan 2016 | Travel Diary in Pictures

Last summer I took an amazing trip to Taiwan, and even blogged about it daily! Until about half way through when things got hectic and I got lazy. I ate, saw, and experienced so many amazing things that I didn’t get to share with you! But, as the saying goes, it’s better late than never!

If you have some time, I recommend you check out my blog posts about my first four days in Taiwan (1, 2, 3, 4) where I give detailed accounts about what I did each day while in the south of the country. The gallery below has photos from my time there, as well as photos from the rest of my 8-day trip where I met up with friends and visited cafes, shops, museums, and historical sites in Taipei and Jiufen.

I’m no photographer but I am quite pleased with some of these photos, especially the monkey close ups ^-^. Please, enjoy!

at a loungey wine bar in downtown where you take off your shoes and sit on fur rugs on the floor with strangers and listen to jazz and chill-hop… very hip~~~
