One of the things that I like about Taipei is that you don’t need to fly nor drive too far to experience its natural wonders. Unlike in the Philippines where it is so much effort to get to the best beaches especially considering that our transport system is, sadly, and it makes me cringe to say this, third world, it is the opposite for tourists in Taipei. Just an hour away from the city, you can see geological formations that, in my case, reinforced my faith and awe in the magnificent blessings of God. Frankly, it’s the same feeling I felt when I see beaches, or mountains, or even when I visited the Grand Canyon in Arizona.
The air was fresh. It was drizzling, the roads were wet, and the wind was very cold. But our trip to Yehliu Geopark was special. My son, then two years old, smiled and giggled heartily as if saying that he loved the place. He frolicked on the wet paths and pulled our arms to signal that he wanted us to chase him around. He was mesmerized by the sea and the sounds that the waves created.
We didn’t mind the cold air nor the drizzle because my son was so game and the view was certainly fantastic. I definitely recommend a visit to Yehliu Geopark if you are visiting Taipei. It is good for the soul 🙂
I’m parking right here and will leave you with awesome photos below. Enjoy!
