Taipei, Taiwan Adventure!

Here’s a throwback post of my Taiwan adventure five years ago!

The first thing in Taiwan that made me go whoa, were the massive amount of bikes. This is how they park the bikes along the sidewalk.

One of the essential activities we had was of course, the campus tour. In this picture are Christian Sese, Erwin Albis, Angel Perez and Moi posing in front of the main building of NTU.

Me and the boys were having too much fun with the Fu Bell in NTU. The Fu Bell is a very important monument in Taiwan, so we may have been defiling it a little here. We realised that after doing this. We're sorry.

 Realising I never posted enough photos of my Taiwan trip, I decided to put these here. :) The first thing in Taiwan that made me go whoa, were the massive amount of bikes.

And what's a trip to Taipei without seeing the world's current tallest building?

After visiting Taipei 101, the boys and I lost track of time and missed the bus we were supposed to take with our tour group. We then decided to explore the city some more and luckily the Cow Festival was still on, so there were a looot of attractions in the streets. Like so.

A couple of uh, moving statues.

And here we are walking to some port, I forget which.

We never made it to the port because it was too far. We took a bus back to Dansui station and headed back to Gonguan.

And that, my dear readers, is Racstar in Taipei for you.
