My Trip Outside PH After 20 Years

I thought it would reach me a year to write about the most recent travel I had that is out of the country.  The first time I was able to go out and travel to another country was way back in 1996.  That was my highschool graduation gift.  This not-so-recent trip I’m going to tell you about actually happened last December 2016, and I am only writing about it now.  Why?  Cause I have hundreds of excuses, which I will not enumerate anymore, hehe.  Imagine how long I have kept those wonderful photos on my phone really careful not to delete any of them,  But hey, being the social media person that I am, of course I have uploaded some photos on my social media accounts already during my trip though not all of them.  What I’d like to share here are photos, which I was not able to upload back then.

So the trip was in Taipei City, Taiwan.  It was a company trip/Christmas party/teambuilding for our company.  We checked in at Golden China Hotel, which is in the heart of Taipei.  Unfortunately I wasn’t able to take photos of the room and restaurant where we had our breakfast so no reviews of any sorts 🙂

Sharing here a gallery of our trip.  Enjoy!

After a few drinks some of the girls and I went to Raohe Night Market, but wasn’t able to take some photos of my shopping spree because, girl I  was so busy SHOPPING!!!… … and budgeting my pocket money!  😀

And what is a Taiwan trip without going to this restaurant?!!!  The gang at MODERN TOILET RESTAURANT

That’s all!  I hope you enjoy the trip through my photos.  Sorry I’m not really very good at taking pictures, but I can still improve 🙂

Thanks for reading!

Smile always!
