A few weeks ago I visited Fun Taiwan, My 30th country at age 29!!! Awesome sauce!!!:) Although there's a grand and endless political debate about it, please for the sake of my personal travel goal--let's consider it a country!! They have their own currency and flag--so that should count! I'll be honest with you folks, Taiwan was never really on my list of MUST SEE places before I die. It was always on the map, I was fully aware of its existence, but that was that. It was only through the FUN TAIWAN show on TLC that suddenly this small country intrigued me. If you do a little research about Taiwan, you'll see that they are quite an interesting people (and very strong and resilient too)--with traces of Chinese, Japanese, Spanish, Dutch and even Portugese influences in their culture and heritage. In many ways, they're like Filipinos--a relatively young country that's struggling to define their own identity and stepping out of the shadows of their Asian big brothers. Last week I was invited by the Taiwan Visitors Association to discover Taipei and it's neighboring provinces. We spent 3 full days in Taiwan (definitely bitin) but thankfully Chal Del Rosario of Jeron Travel and Tours was able to squeeze in so many activities in such a short span of time. I will be writing more extensively about this trip soon, but in the meantime here are some photos from my trip!
