it was a great little trip
2 nights, 3 days
the weather could have been better but we still enjoyed ourselves
it's always great to get away from the city
got to meet some new family and also see some whom i haven't seen in a long time
got to vist and pay respects to grandpa, great grandpa and great-great grandpa
it's always a great feeling and for some reason, a sense of pride and accomplishment
however, i had my down time and felt blue as i still miss grandpa very much to this day
that made me appreciate the time i spent with my parents during this trip even more
times like that are becoming more and more rare as i grow older and start my own family
on the highway heading south. departed at 7am (on wednesday) and made it to pingtung around lunch. not too bad considering we stopped over 1 hour total for bathroom breaks and such.
almost there. i love this strecth of the drive with the ocean on one side and hills on the other.
uncle's (dad's cousin) place in hengchun.
driving past southbay on the way to kenting
having a few drinks with my pops during the night at a bar in kenting. didn't drink too many since we've had a long day at that point and were pretty tired from the drive, plus we had to get up early in the morning for tomb sweeping.
"sweeping" great-great grandpa's grave
great grandpa and grandpa's place
streets of kenting slowly filling up with people getting ready for spring scream
we spend the last night and day in kaosiung, where we visited fo guang shan
