... amazingly simple highly worth it. With a number of strategic stop offs [ahem] at 7/11s along the way, and some opportunities for some scenic pictures we finally rolled up to Hualien (the major city near Taroko Gorge) at around 5pm. Our hostel was nice and although in a dorm, we were lucky enough to have a 4 person room all to ourselves. Whilst nice, the room was a little like a hospital ward by which I mean we had a hospital style curtain to section off our beds ...
After some travel tips and google searching we realised that there is a whole lot of stuff to see in Taiwan and our little "drop in" trip to Taiwan quickly gained the potential to be a country-wide odyssey.

This again is what good in Taiwan, especially if cycling, you have any problems or want water, toilet or a bike tyre pump just go into local police ...
... CKS's time was the local Alcatraz- anyone who spoke against him (or pro-communism for that matter) could disappear the next day and find him/herself locked away there. Interestingly, this preservation area is next to a military base so the fighter jets were having practice runs during our visit. We then went to San Sien Tai (Three Fairy Stand), a pebble beach with eroded cliffs and henceforth formed mini islands. Given most of ...
