Brian at Fulong Beach, one of the more popular beaches in Northern Taiwan. We took a train, met some friends from training, and spent a lovely Sunday afternoon sunbathing and swimming.
Our friend Katannya (my coworker) invited us to go hiking with some of her friends. We got to try a new trail in Wulai, meet the author of Lonely Planet Taiwan, as well as some other Americans who had lived in Taiwan for a few years. Those are always the best people to ask for ideas on where to visit in Taiwan- they know the best places.
