Can we extend our Taipei stay?
2 days ago, our nephews both asked my wife and myself if we could stay on longer in touring Taiwan..
The boy’s responses were expected, as much as this last day of our tour was a reality expected and inevitable.. We were here on Wednesday the week before. This day was the Wednesday we would wrap up this 8-days trip.
Checking out hotel to head home..
With a hint of reluctance – even sadness – the 4 of us continued ahead in a gusto and beat reminding us of the momentum we toured the last 7 days in. Cool! 😉
Outside Taipei Main Station, we paused in the cool air and views around us.
The boys (and yes, me too!) wanted to sit a minute longer, and savour the last of whatever they (we) could feel of Taipei..
Bye bye Taiwan!
In less than 10 minutes we had crossed the road to reach the bus terminal, bought bus tickets and were queuing at the bay. The bus driver appeared and hurried us – luggages and all, into the ride to the airport.
Maybe he knew our reluctance and was making the departure quicker – and less painful? 🙂
