A quick, pre-trip post to make sure I remember how to update this blog. I leave Saturday for a 2-part trip, spending one week in Taiwan and a little more than a week in Vietnam. I waited until summer to shop for airfares, so couldn't find any good deals. Then I heard about booking a "multi-city" trip on search engines. If you set your stop over to be a multi day one, you are essentially getting two trips for one airfare price. So, prices that were in the "No way!" range, suddenly became, "Hmmm..."

Speaking of prices, I booked my hotel rooms on Hotels.com, and was really surprised to find out how cheap they were in Vietnam. Taiwan is more expensive, it appears, but both are bargains compared to Europe in summer.

I leave in a few days, so am busy getting all those last-minute things finished before leaving. So, stay tuned for updates...!

Hey Mike, I am following your blog. We have been to Taiwan. Taipei 101 is great. Went to Taichung as well. There is a great Jade market there. And we also went to Sun Moon Lake which is beautiful. Don suggests seeing a tea plantation. We did spend a day at the Formosa Aboriginal Culture Village which is an amusement park with the Aboriginal theme. It wasn't our favorite thing to see. However, Ella loved it. She was 9 when we were there. While at the village we saw people eating what looked like popsicles made out of beans. We were afraid to try them. Turns out they are sweet and people love them Anyway I will keep watching your blog. Enjoy.
