My dad let us know that this trip to Taiwan would be the last “family” trip we’d ever take that was fully paid for. My sister and I were adult professionals now and were being thrown out into the world to fend for ourselves…vacation-wise anyway. So of course we were fully on board to take advantage of one last family trip to the motherland.

Memories are faded and details are non-existent, barring what can be gleaned from the photos I took as this trip predates even my old blog. I do vaguely remember ditching my family on New Year’s Eve to go clubbing with friends. That bit’s coming back to me.
