When I started to feel better and knew I had to get out of this room! Some friends decided to head to Kenting which is the south road of Taiwan the beaches and beauty lie there. We did not really have plans just went to the bus station at midnight and played it by ear… Which is very hard for me to do, being as I am control freak at times and like to have some idea of what is going on.. but i desperately wanted to go surfing so I said ok and have already traveled with these guys so knew I would be ok.
It was beautiful but my ginger ( redheaded, pale) self caused the issues as I tried to be carefree… I did not get to go surfing sadly we were not in the right part but we spend a different day on every beach and I of course burnt through the sunscreen I reapplied 3 time within 4 hours… and was laying under an umbrella… Oh well part of life as a Ginger… This ginger finally got her sun… ouch!
So here are some photos! We had a pretty good time, and the waterproof pouch for my camera worked pretty well! The last day we went to Kaosheng and stayed with a friends Aunt in a large home. It was much different then any home I had been in but it worked… Although the stairs were so steep they almost seemed to be pushing you backward… Anyway we went because we were going to go to EDA theme park.. So it rained some that morning but we arrived at the Theme Park and most of the big kid rides were closed for maintenance… Not cool.. So we did not go it. Also it looked like a theme park.. the roller coasters were not the attraction it was a pretty place you could take your kids and enjoy an upscale scenery…
We watched hang over 3 and then went to the bus for the 5.5 hour bus ride home…. I have never road so many buses in my life but they are convenient and much nicer than any Midwest greyhound bus.
Time to Snorkel!
Dinner and the street Night Market, much easier to get pictures of all the crazy food than in the city!
Second Day, ATV Ride then hitchhiked (much to my dislike) to the South Bay Public Beach! With Umbrellas for my Ginger self!!!
View from Second Hotel!
Third Day, White Sand Beach! (camera died :(/) anyway this is the Beach where life of PI was filmed! I was getting in position to take the photos that would make you
