i miss taiwan.
~~ the beginning of 2020 feels like a century ago now when my only worries were what to eat next as I strolled thru the small spaces on Jiufen old streets. had to see this place in person due to its’ similarity to the village in Spirited Away.
Tell me you woof me 🐶
This place was probably the most fun we’ve had eating out as a family with grandma in Taipei. Grandma can’t walk far distances anymore, but I’m pretty sure she’d be willing to make the trek here again (up and down stairs in the MTR stations, transferring trains, etc). I hope they’re still open when we come back again as a family!
Tip: in order to get the dog soup refill, you have to order the milky soup base (I’m not positive if the soup base is different for the bear). Call ahead to ask if they have any left and reserve one! We didn’t, but luckily they still had a doggy left. When your soup levels get low, ask for more soup, then plop the animal in; it looks like it’s taking a bath 🛀 Mom is vegetarian, so she ordered the milky soup base. You make your own sauces here, so I would make the dipping sauce more flavorful (garlic, chives, etc), maybe spicy. Their meat quality is also 💯!

Massive Canyons in Hualien ⛰
Taroko Gorge, sometimes called the Taiwanese Grand Canyon, is the country’s premier scenic attraction, along with Alishan and Kenting National Park. It's on my list of best places to visit in Taiwan if you want experience dramatic nature on a short, easy-to-plan trip. It can even be done as a day trip from Taipei, but staying for at least one night at Hualien is what I would recommend.
The best aspect of the park, in my opinion, is the diversity of nature. In a single afternoon you can travel from rugged coastal cliffs through a maze of subtropical forested canyons to high elevation coniferous forests. #taiwan 🇹🇼
Found the comfiest place to have a nap, might come back later 😂 if you’re looking for bright colored spots, Kaohsiung might steal your heart 😘 .
Today I had a course about first aid care and I remembered I almost died as a kid because I choked on a hard candy 🍬🙊 so learn your basics! Have you already been involved in first aid as a victim or as caregiver? I want to hear your stories in the comments 😁

Locting in an alley, this scone store is incredible! The scones got a wide selection of flavours and types. Taro one is larger and a bit fluffy. It's already cutted half with cream inside when served. The homemade jams are great too. So, I was actually debating whether I should just eat the scone or put all the jams in, since the scones were flavoured but jams were great too. Milk tea is also yum with the creamy milk.

Taiwan's Lotus Pond is a favourite spot for day trips from Kaohsiung City. The Dragon and Tiger Pagodas stand at the entrance of the pond and are linked to a temple by a zigzag bridge.

San Xian Tai 三仙台 located at East coast of Taitung County, is well known for it's long footbridge in the shape of a Sea Dragon that connects the coast to the Main Island.
pre-quarantine times, we gifted this beautiful seafood pancake to the table beside us cause we were too full to eat anymore 😅
This has to be my favorite place to river trace.

Back in Taipei, where I’ll be living until I head back to the States. I took about nine days to travel down the west coast but after an incident at a hostel and a woman grabbing her child to run away from me in public, I felt it was best to come back here. Taiwan has done an excellent job of handling COVID cases, but it is in a second wave, and tensions are high. There are few foreigners so the stares feel longer in smaller cities. This isn’t unexpected, but I feel better being back. Fortunately, I have a few day trips planned when weather gets better. So for now I’m settling in and enjoying where I’m staying, which feels like a little home in the midst of so much uncertainty. Food photos to come.
Taiwan is the land of Taipei 101, the legendary Jiufen, Michelin-starred dimsum – and a paradise where one can be nourished with things that are fresh and pure.

Have you been to Shifen Waterfall? It is dubbed the Niagara of Taiwan. Such amazing natural attraction! #visittaiwan#taiwan#salamtaiwan @ Shihfen Waterfall https://www.instagram.com/p/B9iyjjxJH35/?igshid=1kpn4k8bw2h90 …
The #Jiufenoldstreet with a lot of great restaurants to try Taiwan local foods 🤤
Sadly I was there in a stormy day with heavy rain so haven’t had enough time and comfort to enjoy thoroughly. But it was still great enough to get the atmosphere of #spiritedaway. Definitely will come back to make the most the old street 😚
