Tour de Taiwan 2018
TOUR DE TAIWAN
NOV 6 - 12, 2018
Big thanks to Taiwan Tourism Board and Giant Adventures for making this trip possible.
I had the most incredible opportunity to cycle around Taiwan with Andrew (aka Gunnarolla). 2018 was truly when I started to see that the Law of Attraction was very much a real thing and manifesting things was very much real. From pink drinks to new jobs, we’d speak things into existence. The Universe was listening and we were very much in tune. We had been saying all summer long that we were going to Asia by the end of the year and BOOM - it became a reality! Taiwan Tourism Board (TTB) & Giant Adventure invited Andrew to take part in the 2018 Taiwan Press Cycling Tour - Formosa 900 and he brought me along for the ride.
When we arrived in Taiwan, our tour guide Min picked us up from the airport and brought us to the Brother Hotel in the Songshan district and gave us the afternoon to explore. It was so refreshing being back in Asia…the streets, the smells, the humidity… I felt home. Of course the first thing we had to do was a…PHOTOSHOOT. We grabbed a bite to eat at Sushi Express and had my fave red bean dessert, then decided to pamper ourselves and get our hair done. Feeling refreshed, we were ready to begin our journey.
We cycled for 4 full days through Taipei and the beautiful island of Penghu (aka Taiwan’s best kept secret) which is situated off the Western coast of mainland Taiwan.
And while I would love to write all about this trip, words couldn’t do it justice. So instead, I leave you with a 5-part video series and a gallery of photos below documenting our experience - the cycling, the food, the sights, VIVIAN, the #Booch… and our amazing stay at one of the nicest hotels I’ve personally ever been in (W Taipei) to top off our very first trip together!
If you’re looking for your next travel destination, Taiwan truly has it all.

*NOTE - You don’t need to be ballin’ out of control to plan an amazing trip to Taiwan! Travelling in Southeast Asia can be easily done on a tighter budget while still experiencing all that it has to offer. Dorm rooms or hostels are very clean and very modern, there are a plethora of night markets that you can eat your heart out at for $1-2 a dish, and getting around is super easy (and cheap) with an amazing metro/bus system.
Andrew and I were truly blessed with the experience we had and this is only the beginning of so many more trips to come.
