So after possibly the worst attempt at a road trip (having been in Kenting all the time we'd been in Taiwan), with Lizzie finally deciding to stop ruining our driving trip we packed our bags and vamoosed outta Kenting [Kending to the locals]. Ahead of us and our Toyota Yaris was a 6 hour journey to Hualien on the east of the island for an overnight stay before a venture up the waterway to Taroko Gorge.
