Flowers in Taipei Taipei December 2017

My last trip up to Taipei for 2017. I definitely visited Taipei a lot more this year than last year. Maybe the most I ever had in a year. I will probably keep visiting Taipei in 2018. I am also looking forward to visiting new places and new countries in 2018.

Saturday I wandered around Yuanshan Park, and the Fine Arts Park on Saturday. On Sunday I checked out Christmasland in Banqiao. It was a little colder than normal but I still found it very comfortable.

Saturday

Lights at Xinban Metro Park
It was nicer away from the concert I think. We could walk around and not have our eardrums damaged.
