I wanted to begin with my favourite place in Taipei this time. The funny thing was, we hadn't even intended to go at all in the first place. We were in Beitou for the day, done with our looking around when I recalled a friend mentioning Danshui once. It was on the same train line and so we thought 'why not?'.
It turned out really wonderful. We stumbled upon a beautiful sunset, and a quirky tiny cafe with a great view of the pier. As we sipped our mocha and iced chocolate, we saw the sun slowly turning amber, a deep pink, until it dipped its head under the horizon.
Sometimes the best things in life come where you least expect it.
