Changing Taipei tour plans again?
Our younger nephew was having stomach trouble in the morning.
It looked like we might have to amend our itinerary for this Day 3..
The initial plan for the day was to travel out of Taipei to the theme parks in Taoyuan and Hsinchu. Travelling in some hour-long distances by bus and possibly cabs are required.
I suggested: Why not we leave the theme parks for another day, and stay within Taipei county for touring? My wife agreed and on we go!
No sweat travel!
Any signs of stomach ailments among the 4 of us travellers was not unexpected.
Remember reading here how we were prepared with our medicines?
We were actually glad the signs appeared this early in the tour, in hope the boy could soon “acclimatize” to the new environment and enjoy his tour with us! And enjoyed he did! 🙂
Our star rating:
[rating: 1/5] Yawn! We will pass!
[rating: 2/5] Yeah! We love to tour! :-]
[rating: 3/5] Yippee! We want more! ;->
[rating: 4/5] Yoohoo! We love Taipei, Taiwan! ;-D
