We’re so sorry it’s been nearly a year since our last blog. 2019 turned out to be a surprising and busy year. We’ve added a new member to the Benson family. We can’t wait to travel with our little man (Teniola Benson) and get him hooked to this travel lifestyle.
We’re kickstarting 2020 with a unique location that I’m sure isn’t on most people’s list: Taipei (capital of Taiwan). November 2018 we decided to dabble into the Asia’s, into Hong Kong. But being the galavanter that I am, I had to make the most of travelling that distance. So began our trip in Taipei, on to Macau, and ended in Hong Kong. What an amazing trip that was, and Taipei was a brilliant surprise. We had no expectations which made it all the better.
Accommodation in Taipei was relatively cheap. We stayed in a 4* hotel and the facilities was still high tech (see the video of our beautiful toilet that washed things for us!), so we could imagine what we would have found if 5*!
In the Benson household, we love food, and Taipei did us proud. The night markets were to die for. Street food made freshly by locals, was simply the best. Clearly that was my highlight! But I’ll quickly go through our itinerary, everyday being genuinely awesome:
1. Taipei main station – we were close to the station so were able to get around easily. You can also catch the hop on hop off bus here; and if you know me well, I love this bus. It really is the easiest way to see all the key landmarks in a city
That’s just a few things we did as we only spent 3 days, but there was more to do, and would most certainly come back. So, if this secret gem wasn’t on your list before, it wouldn’t do you any harm to get it on your list! You can watch our video here: https://youtu.be/8nst3e6rCTs
See you next month
