We all have funny stories to tell and the most interesting ones to hear are the ones where we got in trouble or when things didn’t go according to plan. Cambodia happened and is one good example. We were coming from Ho Chi Minh City bound for Phnom Penh to ride another bus going to Siem Reap. It was when we arrived at the terminal we were informed that our trip got cancelled, and we had to take the midnight trip. It shouldn’t had been an issue if they informed us ahead, even if the notice came in just the day before, but the thing is Giant Ibis in Phnom Penh kept on saying they sent an email yet they can’t show us any proof. We were so disappointed, but we really had no choice but to just see the places around and hang somewhere for hours. Come midnight trip, we hopped on a sleeper bus and we got to Siem Reap the next day before 6 AM, and we had to change plans due to this mishap.
Whenever I go out of the country, it always feels like am going to commit to something beautiful that will leave me speechless. I love how traveling makes one go on adventure, learn new things, discover the skills you didn’t know you had all the time, make your dreams come true and so much more. My love affair with travel is simply what’s keeping me sane and happy and one of the many good reasons I keep on gazing towards the bright side of life. And Taiwan is undoubtedly one of those places that made me speechless.
There is a fulfillment in doing things that make you tired. Let’s take our day 1 of traveling around Taipei as a good example. Before we doze off and call it a night, I was on my phone the whole time and admiring all the pictures I took with my camera. Taipei gave me the infinite sense of wonder. I even forgot that I was super tired and have been asking for bed the entire day. LOL. Tossing and turning. That’s exactly how I would describe my excitement to start and kick off our second day with so much energy and positive vibes.
I’ve been hooked on the feeling of international exposure and constantly in search of soul-enriching experiences that exhilarate me. Then Taipei happened. It was a dream come true though I wasn’t really planning on visiting this colorful city anytime soon. So fortunate that there was a GetGo seat sale and I have a Korean visa which got me a visa-free entry to Taiwan. I scheduled it on my birthday week and now I am ticking it off my bucket list. Yahoo!
