I had the whole of the following day free, and the weather looked promising; I packed water and some snacks, and set my alarm for 5:30 a.m.
I thought Taipei was a furnace in summer until I journeyed to the southern counties of Kaohsiung (高雄) and Pindong (屏東) last summer to spend the weekend with a local friend, Sam. As soon as I was off the train at Pingdong Station the heat (and the humidity) hit me.
On one lazy Saturday afternoon in May, my husband and I set off by car to the southernmost tip of Taiwan - Kenting. Kenting (墾丁) is a small beach town that is located in the Pingtung County which is the southern most county in Taiwan.
