I have safety arrived in Taipai after a 4 hour flight, 1 hour forward clock switch-a-roo, and a 15 degrees drop in temperature!! 😐 it is only 20 degrees here – I am dying its so cold! haha. Why do I always choose to travel to the cold countries! silly me!
But yeah arrive and then took a bus then a subway and then met up with Ken, my couchsurfing host! hes from Taiwan but grew up in Oklahoma, and his 4 other roommates are americans from arizona and michigan! they are all going to school here!
So tonight Ken asked if I wanted to go to kickboxing with him- I said sure why not! haha So we went to this beautiful area with temples and a pavillion and it is a Danish guy named Anders who hosts this kickboxing class on Tues/Thurs every week. its basically just all Foreigners who go and do kickboxing in the middle of this area. It was really fun but also a hard workout! hahaha Im lazzzzzy!! 😀
Then afterwards Ken took me to a night market around his house and we just wandered and drank milk tea – its kind of like bubble tea cause it had tapioca beads on the bottom – but more milky! but it was supppper delicious!!
Tomorrow I am going to wander Taipei unattended in search of Temples and pretty things!! Wish me luck 😀
