Until someone finally asked me whether I’ve been to Penghu yet, and I suddenly recalled that this very high on my TODO list but I never got around to it. So, I made a very quick decision to take a flight and explore the islands.

It was brilliant, and I had the most wonderful time. That trip reminded me of everything I loved about Taiwan. Crazy temples, gorgeous beaches, breathtaking scenic views, Taiwanese village life with Fijianese architecture houses, ancient Dutch and Japanese forts, amazing local food, and very friendly locals. Brought me back to the wonderful years of roaming around exploring Taiwan and Taiwanese culture.
