POSTCARD #4: Longshan area, Taipei 2017

Last week, I was just at Taipei with a couple of friends – and if you read my postcard a couple weeks back, the last time I was here it was a hell of an adventure (at least for me, that is.) 

I got a chance to see Taipei with new eyes this time. The rain, errr… storm, gave the city a cloak of depth to a point of gloom, but also a comfort that is familiar. Too bad, we couldn’t just stay in as we were just there for the weekend. It would be lovely to stay in the hostel and try to get to know fellow travelers. And keep toasty. Rain is best experienced indoors with a hot cuppa, I reckon. 

The brief was simple: get in, eat, and get back. Instead, we had so much more. It’s been a while since I took a trip this short. We did eat a lot. Unexpectedly shopped. And saw a lot of art. 

The city is brimming with art: either handmade by humans in a museum, or city life sprawling on the streets. Taipei has indeed gone up to being one of my favorite Asian cities.

He works in digital advertising but this blog is not about his job. Jonver overshares about his travels, boy dreams, and existentiality on his little space in the world wide web. He finds drunk tweeting amusing - all the more because he's funnier that way.

He likes to believe that his name is so unique he feels confident to ask you to search his name instead of giving his social media handles.
