Editing down some actual camera shots taken om my recent trip to Taiwan to add to the iPhone/Instagram gallery currently posted.

In the meantime, I just wanted to point out this rock formation I spotted off of the coast of the Green Island (綠島鄉). Looked a bit familiar to me for some reason...

Taiwan 101

I have put off updating this site for way too long. My Valentine's Day resolution is to get back in the habit of posting more frequently. Let's see how this goes!

I went to Taiwan for nice 10 day vacation this month courtesy of my ex-step father / still good friend John. We visited with his lovely wife Chingling, her friends & family mainly in Taipei, Taitung (her hometown) & the nearby Lyudao (Green Island). Taiwan was a full of friendly people and natural beauty. Much less crowded or hectic than typical metropolitan areas with plenty of historic sites to visit and amazing local food. I didn't have a deep knowledge of China or Taiwan before I visited, so I was eager to discover and luckily met many people who were excited to share.

We left at the beginning of the Chinese New Year week of celebration which was a great way to end the trip. Happy New Year of the Snake!

You can check out my iPhone/Instagram taken shots in the photography gallery here. I might add some more photos later if I can find enough good shots from my actual camera.
