TAIWAN

April 3, 2016

Taiwan has been on my travel bucket list for several years, so when my good friends Heidi and Jimmy asked if I'd like to tag along on their trip there, I jumped at the chance. I've known Taiwan to be a food mecca, of sorts, but nothing could've prepared me for the onslaught of all the incredible food there. Thankfully, though our trip was essentially one long food marathon (with a heavy rotation of soup dumplings, beef noodle soup, and bubble tea), we did a fair amount of walking in Taipei, along with a weekend trip to hike through the breathtaking Taroko National Park.

I try to keep my expectations somewhat low when I travel, because there's bound to be at least one detail or plan that goes askew. However, I want to note that my time in Taiwan not only met every one of the expectations I had, but exceeded them in every area— the food, the sights, and the culture. 

I miss those mornings where we'd start the day off with delicious and flaky breakfast pastries and cups of the freshest soy milk I've ever tasted. While I'm dreaming about Taiwan's food (and sadly noting how my daily breakfast of coffee and yogurt will never compare), here are my favorite moments from Taiwan— a truly unbelievable place.
