Last summer I revisited the tightly-packed, but hearty streets of Taipei. I'm a foreigner in Taipei and I was hesitant to go, but it's full of uniqueness upon arrival. Every street corner, shop-filled of savory summer treats. The urban zone; some parts tattered but still colorful. We hiked the rolling mountains and hills, experiencing the humid, tropical air of Asia-- stretches of tiny shrines are seen across the terracing hills. Waves after waves of hikers rested on wooden benches and portable tables, sat and enjoyed socializing with dry pumpkin seeds and small cups of herbal tea. It was so different, but yet the people are so full of connections to my home in Canada and Denmark.
This is my admiration-- Enjoy new horizons. Explore.
