I heart Taipei

October 22, 2012

We spent our third wedding anniversary in Taipei. It was a destination where we had not been before as a couple and we loved the city instantly!

First of all, we had chosen a good time of the year to visit. It was early autumn, but very sunny and warm everyday. The temperature was about 25C in the day and 20C at night. We stayed in an above average hotel; it was very clean, spacious and comfortable.

On the first day we were so tired about the flight, we slept the whole afternoon. Then we got up at dusk and headed to ShihLin Night Market to check out all the interesting food. We spent an amazing time just nibbling on all the delicious local snacks and soaking up the wonderful atmosphere.

Over the next 2 days, we visited a number of local sights and attractions, including the beautiful port of Danshui, the Beitou Hot Springs and Taipei 101. An especially memorable part of the trip was riding in a glass bottom cable car cabin to Maokong Mountain and descending at sunset, where we were treated to a spectacular view.

It was wonderful to be able to spend some days in each other’s company, explore new places and experience new things, remembering what it’s like to be ‘us’…

Finally!

Waited 15 years for this day and could not hold back my tears when I saw her sitting in her wedding dress on the corner of her bed that morning. I’m even welling up now as I write! I can only say I’m extremely happy and honoured to be part of the couple’s big day. I LOVE YOU, SHARON!
