Taiwan Tour - Day One
I didn't get to attend days three and four of the convention. Instead, ECS invited me on a two-day tour via Lion Travel, where I got to hang out with some cool people and see some amazing things. I've increased the size of the photos to 1000x750, from our typical 800x600, though photos can't capture the beauty of some things even at the highest resolution.
Taipei Main Station
We started our journey meeting at Taipei Main Station, which is so huge and has entrances on all sides, that finding the rest of the tour group was no easy task.
The train traveled along the Eastern coast. There was a core six of us guys that hung out with each other during the tour - in the first photo you have the arm of Kevin on the left, Nathan next to him, Alex waving behind them, Jacson across the aisle, and Oscar behind him, not paying attention to my camera. Our tour guide, Tony, was the guy standing in the middle of the aisle in the yellow jacket. In the second photo, you have your favorite OCC member, me. You may notice how the first set of seats behind me is turned around. All sets of seats can be rotated around, which is pretty cool. The main reason for this is so the crew can turn all the seats facing forward when the train gets to the end of the line and prepares for its return trip. The guys behind me turned it around to play a game of cards. The rest of the photos are just some photos I took out of the window during the ride, thus why you may notice some minor reflections in some photos, and eventually raindrops - but thank god for image stabilization! lol
The red spot on the map in the second photo is Hualien. We traveled from way up north, where the map doesn't even go. Total trip was a little over two hours.
