Along the east coast #

Mar 6, 2023 - Mar 8, 2023

From Taitung we cycled north along the east coast. The east is much less populated than the west coast, with more nature and beautiful views of the sea all the time.

We stayed two days in the middle of Kaohsiung. We explored the surroundings, including a short ferry trip to Cijin island. Kaohsiung is quite nice with a big art scene located at Pier2.

With Bastians family we went camping into the mountains. We had a great time exploring the surroundings, sitting at the river and enjoying a huge bbq! Thanks to Bastians father in law for the superb food!

Back to the west coast #

From Taichung we took a detour to the Sun Moon Lake and into the mountains. Steep climbs, nice views and some aboriginal villages later, we arrived. We used our time to explore the native tribe city Ita Thao, hike up the highest peak in the area and relax at the beautiful lake.

We spent the weekend in Taichung, the second largest city of Taiwan. On the first day, we visited the famous Feng Chia Night market, where we had some great street food. We spend most of our second day on the street and in the parks. Taichung has quite a lot of small parks and green boulevards.

Let's go cycling #

Feb 16, 2023 - Feb 17, 2023

It's finally time to go cycling! We are heading south, following mostly the famous cycle route Number 1, but taking a few scenic alternatives. When we first arrived, we had 10°C during the day, so we were a little afraid of the weather. But it turned out it was just a cold surge for two days and as soon as we started, we had perfectly sunny 20°C+ weather.

Welcome to Taiwan #

Feb 14, 2023 - Feb 15, 2023

After a pretty exhausting journey we made it to Taiwan. We had some trouble getting out of the airport with the bicycles, but managed it by train in the end. Then the usual stuff: transport, hotel, SIM cards, cash and most important, getting some sleep. Afterwards we took a walk around Taoyuan, the city where Taipei's airport is actually located, and assembled the bikes.
