Pete & Pam go Travelling
Have just arrived in taiwan. Decided to be brave and catch a bus into the city from CKS airport. Cost us NT$125 each - about 2 pounds. Then found out that we were actually a bit lost when we got off the bus, as there was not a single word of written English anywhere! Everything is written in small symbols - Mandarin - even the restaurants that you go to will present you with a menu. Its only when you look at them with a bit of a blank expression on your face that people come over & help. We have encountered some of the friendlist & helpful people in the world - I think! We even had a lady share her umbrella with us whilst waiting to cross a street! Will update a bit more as soon as possible as internet facilities here are few and far between - and very pricey! Did I mention that everywhere you look looks like a chinese restaurant or take-away!! Will upload photos soon so you can see what I mean!!!
