Taipei, Taiwan was quite the adventure—In many ways, this trip wasn’t like all the other trips I’ve planned (or micromanaged), seeing as I’ve had a relatively shorter time mapping everything out. This trip was more open-ended; more spontaneous; more susceptible to changes and spur-of-the-moment decisions (like suddenly visiting the zoo!).
It was kind of refreshing, not being bound by a physical to-do list I feel compelled to check off one by one. Of course, losing the actual physical copy of that list on the way to our first stop helped a lot.
My trip to Taiwan will surely be the first of many—There’s just simply too much things to see and do (night markets to cross off my list) that a few short days wouldn’t be enough!
I guess visualisation really works! I drew these giraffes on the plane bound for Taipei (copied off the latest issue of Smile magazine) not really anticipating that I’ll be actually meeting them on this trip.
