Well I survived and had a great time in Taipai!
Things did not start off that well though. Only three out of the six of us travelling got on the first plane as they overbooked it. Then the seventh person coming later to Taiwan was delayed! So when all seven of us all finally met at our hostel in Taiwan it was a miracle in itself. I am not going to go into details about the state of the hostel, but when I say that the dead thing in the picture on the left was hanging from our dorm light switch, it should help the images flow.
And did not get to bed till 7.30 am.
And if I said that everyone else looked just as rough as Nikki later that same morning. You will have some idea how we felt. (please no one who knows Nikki tell her I have put this picture on here, she will kill me!)
But the crazy night did not stop us from getting out and doing the tourist thing!!! (or going out till four am the next night either for that matter)
We also went to the Fisherman market which was a bit like the Taipai version of Stanley which was provided a little bit of countryside to our visit.
And you could not visit Taipai without visiting "Taipai 101" which is the tallest building in the world, with a view to make you feel like you are in a plane.
