To kick off our honeymoon in 2013 [very belated post], we first stopped in Taipei, where most of my family lives. I’ve been here countless times, but there’s always something new to do. We went hiking near my parents’ place and later visited Ping Lin (平林) tea fields and Zhi Nan temple:
My parents held a reception at a gorgeous hotel we’ve passed by on the freeway and always wanted to visit, The Grand Hotel Taipei. It was great seeing friends and family and a lovely start to our trip.
(Picture on the right is not the hotel; it’s Zhi Nan temple again).
