Suitcase Stories: Taiwan (DanShui Walk)


Here's photos from our second day in Taiwan.

We didn't really have anything planned. Everything that we had to do my mom just based on the National Geographic tour book thing of Taiwan.

First we went to the old British Consulate. It was pretty cool. The place was beautiful.

The garden surrounding the building was so pretty and lush.

I love the intricacies of the furniture inside. Very old-time-y.

Here's the (wet?) kitchen.

Here's the dining room.

It was sooooo sunny and hot that I shed my jacket and broke out the sun glasses.

This is the Alatheia University. I love the facade of the building!

Here's the walk we had to take. Yes, uphill.

At the backyard of the university, there were TONS of pigeons! It was so cool!

Here's "Oxford University". I don't know if it used to be an actual university or whatever but it was just this small little building behind the Alatheia University.

Look forward to more of these!

Yes, I took that photo. I'm OBSESSED with taking shots that emphasize perspective. (?) I don't know if that's what you call it.

Thanks Reina!! :D
