i managed to get out of the city over the weekend and up to taiwan's northern coast. i went with some seasoned rock climbers who, thankfully, let me borrow their equipment! i'm not a very strong climber, but it was a lot of fun and the views from high up the rock face were worth the effort!
i also walked around a bit and found a family fishing. overall, the day was lovely - even when it started really raining late in the afternoon!
