I had a ticket to the UK on October 12th, but when I tought about it I decided not to go somewhere cold. I thought about Malaysia so then I checked the ticket prices and found a special to Taiwan and Bangkok for $320. Then I can travel to KL quite easily.

I will spend 2 weeks travelling around Taiwan. This time I will go down the east coast. And also the mountains and countryside. I hope to meet some good people and check out homestay etc.
