It’s that time of the year again… NATIONAL PEACE DAY. And it conveniently fell on a Friday, which means -> 3 Day Weekend!
We took the opportunity to get a few day trips in.
On Friday, we went to Lion’s Head Mountain and did some serious hiking. We knew we’d be hiking, but we didn’t realize it was more like a mountain climb instead of a leisurely hike… Man oh man, was it a hike. But we got to see gorgeous views over the mountains and the fresh air was amazing in my lungs.
On Saturday, we waited for Jennie to finish working a storytelling event. Afterwards, we went Hashing… which is this fantastic event that mixes running long distance and drinking lots of beer.
On Sunday, we took a bus trip to Lugang to visit the famous lantern man. Most famous in all of Taiwan. We came home with beautiful, hand-painted lanterns with our Chinese names written on them. We had to wait for a few hours before our lanterns would be finished, so we hit up the day market and got some yummy street food. Turned out to be a much later day than we anticipated (and colder too).
I’d say we had a pretty productive 3-day weekend.
Our next 3-day weekend (that we turned into 4 days) is April 4-6th. Conveniently my birthday weekend. We’ll be beaching it up in Penghu. Let’s cross our fingers for beautiful sunny weather, unlike last year!
Gotta love February 28th.
