Phew.......... I'm finally done with my ALL of my Taiwan posts!
Definitely a record for me in terms of :
1) number of words per post
2) number of photos per post
3) frequency of posts - 9 posts in 7 days!
4) time taken to write each post - longer time spent compared to my typical posts.
But I enjoyed the process as well. While writing, I felt I was "re-living" the holiday for the second time :)
It was truly an enjoyable holiday. As I wrote in my first post of the holiday , I called up Malaysian Airlines hoping to extend our time there. What I didn't elaborate was that I actually called up AGAIN the following day, practically begging to be put on the wait list ;) But negative results for both.
Before the holiday, I had people asking me why hubby and I were bringing Elyssa along. (The simple answer is there's really not much choice. I think it's too tiring for my parents or my MIL to take care of Elyssa day and night for a week, especially when the reason is for us to enjoy, not like it's work or something). After the holiday, I had a lot of people asking me how Elyssa was.
Actually, we are real lucky that Elyssa is a good traveler :) She eats anything and everything, so food is not an issue. (we brought her milk powder there but didn't even make a single bottle cos she just ate what we ate). The only problem we have with her is when she refuses to walk and wants to be carried. She's pretty heavy too at 13+ kg! I can't carry her for long so most of the time it's hubby who carries the princess. He says it's like his daily weight training :)
And luckily, she's at the age where it's very easy to entertain her. With just simple games, she can giggle and laugh like we are the best entertainers in the world ;)
On Taiwan itself, it was definitely amazing. It's funny that I never thought Taiwan had that much to offer until I did my trip research. Looking back, my favourite part of the whole trip was the Taroko National Park. But I enjoyed the Gold Ecological Park at Jinguashi too. And the hotsprings at BeiTou. And the Fishermans Wharf. And going around XiMenDing area. And....... err, you get the drift. I enjoyed a LOT of things in Taiwan.
Signing off the last of the Taiwan posts with a photo of the 3 of us at our favourite place :)
