Holiday highlights - Taiwan part 1

I'm notoriously bad at sorting through holiday photos, however as 2014 draws to an end I've been thinking about some of my favourite memories this year and top of that list was definitely my trip to Taiwan back in October. Over Christmas I finally sat down, went through nearly 3500 photos and thought I'd share some of my highlights on the blog today:

Posing by the beautiful but windy gardens of Sun Yat-Sen memorial hall 
with Taipei 101 standing tall in the background 

 My first experience of Din Tai Fung, a Michelin starred restaurant that serves 
the most amazing soup dumplings. Ever since I've come back I've been 
seriously craving these little parcels of deliciousness and am hoping 
they'll expand into the UK soon!

After dinner and some shopping we took the lift up to the top floors of 101 
where we were awarded with these breath taking views of the city

Ever the blogger - taking a moment to sit down and instagram 
some of my favourite photos so far

 Barbie cafe anyone? Sadly I didn't go inside so can't 
comment on what the food is like...

 Taipei has some beautiful parks dotted around and I loved these
 two with it's intricate pagoda and pebbled ponds

 Another memorable experience was visiting the CKS memorial hall - a famous
landmark erected in memory of the former President of the Republic of China. 
We timed it perfectly for the changing of the guards too.

 Beautiful weather as always - October was the perfect time to visit as it's not too hot and 
bar the odd sprinkle of rain it was warm and sunny the whole time. My first holiday for 
ages where we've not to worry about the weather. Part 2 coming up soon!
