So for such a milestone, what is the best place to go? Of cos Taiwan!
We visited Taipei and made days trips to Jinguashi, Shifen and Wulai which Dear and I didn't visit on our previous trips. So there was also something new for us. But actually what I learnt most from the trip is that what is most important is the time spent with each other and not squeezing in visits. Aww~~
As it was raining, we were wondering if we should proceed to our last stop Shifen. We decided to drive there and hope the rain will stop by then! Really stopped! So we managed to see the small (really small) town and release sky lanterns. Another Taiwan experience checked!
So another Taiwan experience unchecked!
While planning for the trip, I came up with the idea to combine this trip with visiting Okinawa as it is cheap and near to visit from Taiwan. Okinawa has always seem like a cool place to visit but it is expensive and far from Singapore. There are no direct flights and I don't wanna fly 7 hrs just for a few days trip in Okinawa.
Must dos: Eating fresh sashimi don and visiting the aquarium for the whale sharks.
The main shopping streets felt like the Patong of Okinawa but nonetheless still good for tourist shopping hahaha.
This was our main trip of the year actually, cos after we adopted our Buddy and life took over. We did visit Bkk in Oct but that was becos we booked the trip before Buddy came along. And luckily we did book the trip cos it forced us to take a break!
Ok lah, don't say until so cham. We somehow also got to Batam cos we saw a cheap promo for the ferry tickets (again, before Buddy came along).
So we had some short breaks but we really need to go on a long break and we are working towards that after successfully finding Buddy a caretaker when we are not around!
