Kenting | Making a Beeline to the Beach


++

1) Here comes the motherload : A five-hour trip from Taichung to Kenting
2) The bad weather that greeted us after sitting in the shuttle bus for three hours
3) Simple outfit - Cardigan : Ximending Street, Taipei//Dress : thrifted//Flip-flops : had to buy in Kending Street after the storm soaked my shoes
4) Holiday Hostel - Pros : a balcony//Cons : It had the weirdest design ever...a supposedly water theme, but then it featured a sunflower on one wall, some pink bubbles on the other, and venetian-style curtains...like, seriously?
5) We call it 'The Glass Caged Lady' - Havaianas design

1) My heart sunnies reporting for duty
2) Big breakfast, served with cream coffee, yumm!
3) Best idea ever - renting a scooter to go around the island
4) Cheese! Here's me risking a photo while on the scooter
5) Hilly landscape of Kenting
6) Gahhhhh! Beach beach beach!
7) Cute house in the middle of nowhere, looks like the three little bears' house, right? It had a front lawn with cute wooden beach chairs and swings
8) Of course we stopped to take pictures - I love this! 
9) My yellow flip flops and heart sunnies, such summer staples!
10) Some shots from Instagram :

- Arm candy and a new henna tattoo
- Blue Kenting cocktail (delicious)
- A couples' set meal for five people?
- Silly faces photo

11) Ended the second night at Reggae Bar in the middle of the street - artsy shot by Leon
12) Seriously, it's just a reused truck!

One-piece swimsuit : Momoco//Crochet Vest : Sevenshow//Flip flops : Kending Road//Heart Sunnies : Ximending Street, Taipei

In a burst of inspiration, Leon and I decided to scrap our original plan (to go to Kaohsiung) and directly make a beeline for the very south of Taiwan, Kenting. We're spontaneous that way, I suppose, and it turned out to be ingenious! It was the longest ride of my life. We took off at nine in the morning -

One hour on the local bus to get to the train station, three hours to Kaohsiung by train, and another three hours on shuttle bus to Kenting later, we got off only to find that a storm had affected Taiwan, and it was raining so hard, oh dear indeed! I was so sad that I wanted to cry...but it got better. Out of three days in Kenting, we got one perfect day. Kenting was a beautiful place, taking inspiration from tropical getaways like Bali and Thailand (I've been to both) - I wish the weather was better though

And this concludes my trip to Taiwan...I am happy, my wallet's drained, and I have more memories to share one day with my children! I hope you enjoyed my pictures of Taiwan. I'll be posting my new purchases soon!

See you soon -
- Che
