Finally made the boat trip out to see the dolphins…
We’re spending the month of August on the east coast of Taiwan, and today was a bike ride through Jiaoxi in Yilan County… This town is a major tourist spot because of its hot springs – and its easy access from Taipei (less than an hour’s drive through a remarkable mountain tunnel).
Another popular spot? The roast chicken at 甕窯雞:
They provide you with gloves, as you’re meant to rip the whole chicken apart with your hands… finger lickin’ good.
My latest fav work cafe doesn’t serve coffee…
The town is overrun by tourists, but this waterfall is actually quite nice… #jiaoxi
When in Jiaoxi, do as the Taiwanese do: the “fish spa”, whereby tiny fish eat the dead skin off your feet…
Heavy taste Dr. fish, anyone? Anyone?
Okay, actually, we didn’t have the guts (feet?) to try this one — we opted for the normal version (with smaller fish) in Tangweigou Hot Spring Park, just down the street.
Oh man, did I make a mistake in trying this.
It’s just too hot outside, so we sought refuge at a cat cafe with books from the library… #sundayafternoon
