Trip to Hualien!! - Day 1

After some days in Taipei we went to a city called Hualien. It's extremely pretty with lots of nature around and a lot of things to do! We were there for 2 days. It was SUPER hot, but also very relaxing :)

Outfit of the day - Gina Tricot shirt, Monki shorts, Adidas sneaks.

Grabbing some ice coffee. This brand was really good. Had it almost every morning in Taipei! :)

The train ticket :) It's about a 2 hour ride on the train. And on the way you get to look at the beautiful scenery! 

So cute :) <3 p="">

On the train !

I took so many pictures while riding on the train. It was really fun and impressing to see the nature and the small cities we passed. So different from Denmark!

Arrived in Hualien!! :) 

After getting off the train and walking towards the city to find a place to stay an older lady stopped us and asked if we were looking for a room. Apparently a lot of people do this in Hualien since it's a tourist city. I had no idea but Hua was all like "Yeah I already thought of this before we got here". That man knows everything. 

So the room looks like this! Television and a balcony.

Big bed filled with teddybears haha.

Fridge!! This was lovely to have since we didn't have one in the room in Taipei.

And the view from our room.

After getting to the room we went out to get some lunch.

We went to one of those places where the table is like one big pan! :D

Veggies :)

My beef. The meat was good, but the sauce they used to fry the food in wasn't so good :/ Neither Hua or I thought so. 

Hua had some octopus

And fish :)

Also chicken. But again, not so tasty :/

After the food we drove around on the scooter we rented. Beautiful nature all over ! :)

Me and our scooter haha :)

My new favorite picture <3 :="" also="" birthday.="" bought="" for="" handsome="" he="" here="" his="" i="" looks="" loves="" man="" my="" p="" s="" so="" sunglasses="" the="" them="" wearing="">

The ocean! 

We drove out to this little cafe by the sea. It was lovely and calming to sit and listen to the waves while drinking some chilled drinks in the hot weather!

Ducks and bunnies all over! 

Beautiful scenery (and a very beautiful man)

The cafe was sea-themed too :)

Taiwan beer! :D

We drove back to our room to find a place close by for dinner and ended up eating hot pot omnomnom!

All our food!! :o 

I really love hot pot!! But unfortunately they didn't have many veggies to put in other that cabbage, mushrooms and corn (but I REALLY love corn, so just ordered extra haha)

Also had this honey ice tea, and it was super delicious!! 
We also went to the night market. Didn't remember to take so many pictures that day though D:

A picture of some kind of candy they sold. Thought it looked funny xD

Alright, that's it for this time!! :)

Taipei 101

Finally a new update !! :D I forgot that China has blocked everything, both Facebook and blogger!!! D: But there's always a way kekeke

Blogging about Taipei 101 today!

First we had some breakfast on the go before doing something business related :)
After that we took a cab to Taipei 101. Riding taxis in Taiwan was SUPER cheap. Just like everything else.
Had lunch in 101

Hua's noodles

And my noodles. These were actually a bit pricey compared to the rest of Taipei. I think we gave maybe 20 DKK each for our noodles. Still cheap compared to Denmark though!!

The view!! It was so cool looking out over the city and being up so high!

Lovely :)

More of the view

We paid to look through the goggles, but I always think it's hard to actually see anything with them! xD

It was fun regardless :)

So curious :) <3 p="">

We also saw the huge damper. It's there to make the building move less during storms or earthquakes.
After Taipei 101 we went home to take a nap (we love naps haha)

And in the evening we went to another night market.
Sign at the metro station pointing to the night market and temple!

Hua blending in haha <3 p="">
We also passed by the Qitian Temple. It was very pretty!!

There was a LOT of people coming to pray

Some info about the temple :)

Went to the night market after for some food.

My food :)

And Hua's seafood. 

Dessert time!! :D

Some kind of crepe with starwberry ice cream and chocolate sauce . They made the crepe as a pancake first, and after they blew cold air on it so it became hard like a waffle.
Yummy! :)

Ending the post with some cute kitties we saw on our way home. Give me!!!! D: 

See you !! :D
