    Off to New Zealand

    November 30, 2019 in Taiwan ⋅ 🌙 22 °C

    Up for a nice breakfast of salad, sausage, egg and hash brown. They were playing christmas music, so I suppose that made it our Christmas day meal. No where near as full or pissed as usual for Christmas.
    We slimmed down our packs by handing a few Kg to Curly to take home.
    Started our Teddy tour with a car park walk, followed by another car park we couldn't even enter to get access to do a walk. We took the navigational reigns off him and went along to a small pond with a 3 min walking route. Lovely.
    We wanted to get a bit closer to the airport so started the stressful drive through the city. Too many bikes and merging lorries for my liking!
    Got to a rotating restaurant for lunch over looking the beach. Had some chinese tasting food, very nice. Made us all feel pretty dizzy, even though it was only rotating at 1 RPH.
    Made it back to the airport to handover the hire car.
    Few beers with the family to get rid of some coins and we were off to New Zealand!

    7 Hour Layover - Taipei

    January 15, 2020 in Taiwan ⋅ ⛅ 17 °C

    In order to avoid Manila and the volcano, we had to reroute our flight. Longer way around, via Taipei and Kuala Lumpur. The extra day and a half here in Bali will ensure we'll be rested for our flight to Dili. Coming from Manila, we would have landed at midnight on Friday, and sat in the airport until 9 am Saturday to fly to Dili . . . so trade offs all around. There is a bit more cost for this way, but just have to wrap it up to Mother Nature.Read more

    Swiss chocolates and forbidden fruit

    March 25, 2019 in Taiwan ⋅ 🌧 18 °C

    Crossed the Taiwan Strait this morning. Came across an odd, unexpected sight on the Shanghai Pudong side - exiting travellers queueing at 7am for what else but duty free Swiss chocolates. Nobody else was buying anything - only Swiss chocolates were in demand!

    Then on the Taipei Taoyuan side, we got busted for having sliced apple pear. Apparently absolutely no fruits, vegetables or meats are allowed info Taiwan, and there is a seating area just after the quarantine check where passengers carrying forbidden items may sit and well, eat. We just had a few slices of apple pear on us and so we decided to gobble instead of chuck. Although we were the only ones there initially, we were shortly joined by a pair of girls with some more fruit, as well as old guy with a half dozen steamed buns - doh!
