Taitung: I Don’t Know What to Call This

I can't decide what to call this.  I didn't do a whole lot of anything in Taitung.  I spent a lot of time wandering around and drinking coffee, but that's not much of a surprise.  It was cold and rainy most of my time there, but the last day was really nice. I wandered through…

Climbing the Ci-en Pagoda Over Sun Moon Lake

This streak of unhelpful posts just keeps going, but soon enough, once I get to Taipei, it will be done.  But for now, here's another.  This is the pagoda that rises over Sun Moon Lake.  I don't know what it's called (it's the Ci-en Pagoda, I had to Google it), just that I really really…

Yehliu Geopark: Spend A Morning On Mars

If you haven't noticed the trend, I didn't know tons about what I was going to do on this whole Asia trip.  I knew general things, but nothing about them.  I did know that I wanted to go to Yehliu Geopark, though.  The park is a bunch of weird rock formations on the northeast coast,…

How To See The Sabang Mangrove Forest Without A Tour

It was the day after the underground river and time for another adventure.  This time it was in the Sabang Mangrove Forest and we were going to see some wildlife.  Hopefully at least.  Like most things I encountered on Palawan, I didn't really know what this was.  It was a mangrove tour and we were going…

DIY Tour: How To See The Puerto Princesa Underground River Without A Tour

All I knew about Sabang was that this is where I would find the underground river.  Like Port Barton, I had heard good and bad things.  It wasn't all that expensive and I like caves so I figured I might as well go while I'm there.  The chances of me being back there in my…
