People here have been incredibly kind and so helpful, I am sometimes afraid that my requests
are just too much.
One of the advantages of traveling solo is that most people find it hard to believe. The reality is that you end up meeting a lot of people along the way, some casually, others become friends for life. That day I’d met a lovely Norwegian couple who arrived at the same cafe at the same time I did. We sat at the same table and chatted as we drank our teas. They left before I did. Later when I went to pay my bill, the waiter had assumed we were all together!
Waiting for the last leg of my flight in Taipei airport’s butterfly garden. Tropical greenery,very comfy chairs, a lovely center piece and three small doors at the far end, each with a discreet symbol of faith identifying them as three tiny chapels. Quiet and meditative. Nice place to sit.
