In Taiwan by Jaclynn Seah0 Comments

Recap: previous Unholies Taiwan journals… Day 10! It’s our last day in Lyudao and it’s just P, C and me left now that J and K have headed back first. Our ferry is due in the afternoon, so we spend the morning wandering around nearby. It’s a hot, hot day! We walk into Nan Liao village for some breakfast. There’s a little abandoned looking road which we consider hiking up, but give up in about 5 minutes because we have no idea where it heads to and its an uphill climb!

In Taiwan by Jaclynn Seah0 Comments

The next day, we woke up pretty early. We found a little breakfast ?? eating place, which had a truly awesome chocolate thick toast and milk tea. Then we caught the train again and headed down to Taitung ??. It’s about a 2 hour journey, and only when the conductor checked the tickets did we realize we bought the wrong date! *smack forehead* We did manage to get a refund at the Taitung station, thankfully. We also stopped to have our Bian Dang lunch there as well. From Taitung train station we took a cab to the harbour and bought …
