New Years travels

Taiwan’s government was nice enough to give us a nice long four day weekend to kick off the new year. Me and Renegade Wife spent new years day being lazy at home, which felt really good. The other three days we’ve been travelling around both here and there and had a pretty good time. We started with a trip up to Xiaowulai in the mountains, where there are plenty of waterfalls and suspension bridges.

We then drove down to Taizhong and spent Saturday exploring the city and took a look at the new opera house. We spent the night there and at lunch today we attended Yini’s cousins wedding banquet for lunch. On the way back to Hsinchu we stopped by the beach and watched the sunset.
