Kaohsiung Part I
News of Tan Mei Typhoon approaching Taiwan was all over the headlines in August of 2013. Yet, after a brief planning session during an afternoon date at a coffee shop with my best friend, we still hitched on our backpacks, hopped onto the High Speed Rail train the next day and hurtled ourselves to Kaohsiung at around 300 miles per hour.
Within 18 hours, I was in Kaohsiung. Tan Mei Typhoon had just swept into northern Taiwan. Our plan was to backpack in Kaohsiung and Peng-Hu. We stayed in both Kaoshiung and Peng-Hu for two and a half days, making it a trip of five days in total.
