I've been in Taiwan almost 20 years, and had children after being here for ten, so sometimes my view on events and destinations is a little different than those families that have just arrived or are looking to come over to Taiwan.
So, today I want to introduce a friend and fellow blogger, Jenny Green, and in particular, her blog "Tales from the beautiful isle". Jenny came to Taiwan with her husband and son just over two years ago. Since then, she has been keeping a blog of their travels and experiences on this beautiful island. I think newcomers will find her persepectives useful, and long-termers will find it refreshing.
I'd like to recommend the blog post about Dahu Park as a good starting point. It is the time of year families look for places to go and hang out without too much stress and worry. Jenny does a wonderful job at describing what you should look out for at the park. Once you have read that post, I am sure you will click through for more!
