Taiwan was my pick for spending this past holiday, Lunar New Year. In many Asian countries, people celebrate the calendar based on the moon rather than the sun. This is true of Korea as well as China. Thus, I was privileged to have 3 weekdays off from work, which also happened to be next to a weekend! Woot woot! Consequently, with 5 days off, I had to go somewhere, right!?!
My friend, Meagan and I decided Taiwan would be a good choice, with its warmer climate, island feel, and close proximity to Korea, it seemed an ideal choice. Since Taiwan is considered to be a Chinese territory, they too would be celebrating the new year. Meagan and I had never traveled together before, but given how well we meshed as friends and after conversations about our traveling styles, we decided to give it a go.
