I cannot remember exactly how this trip planning got started. In the last 2 months, Ester, Milo and I started planning for a trip around Taiwan by train and bike.
I think the inital plan was making a trip around Taiwan by bike. But considering our time restraints and physical ability, we decided to compromise.
The plan is to start from Taipei, going counter-clockwise, down to Kaoshiong, then to Taitong. We will bike a few times between Taipei and Kaoshiong. The distance of biking will depend on how we feel by that time. We will bike for 3 days between Taitong and Hualien. Then, return to Taipei by train.
For now, we are looking at September of 2011.
