I visited my friend who lives in Taipei and spent the most amazing two weeks in the most incredible country. We took a road trip down the western coast of the island, exploring life outside of Taipei, especially in the more rural regions and the mountains. My friend told me the purpose of my visit was to eat as much as possible. I thought she was joking but I was eating every two hours every single day. Two breakfasts, ten lunches, fifty dinners, one hundred suppers, five thousand midnight snacks. We ate out a lot too, so I was able to try so many wonderful dishes. She showed me historical sites, explaining the political and cultural history of Taiwan and gave me a tour of some great tourist/hip hotspots in Taipei as well. Overall, a memorable and superb time.
