Next Trip Booked – TAIWAN, here I come again. Woohoo! (Plus First Airbnb Stay in Singapore)

Hey there, How’s your weekend been? I just came back from a Staycation in Singapore and sadly, it was one horrible experience. That Airbnb stay affected my mood so much I actually couldn’t sleep at all on their comfy and luxurious mattress. And I couldn’t write for a few days even though my intention was to do full-scale writing at the ‘serene’ retreat. Sadly, this bad Airbnb example had to come from my country. But I …

Teapot Mountain

Hiking Teapot Mountain in Taiwan, plus Nanya and Yin Yang Sea on Day 6 (pt 1)

Hiking Teapot Mountain was the highlight of Day 6 of our Eastern Taiwan Tour.
