Vancouver: A 2 Day Itinerary And Sightseeing Guide

Vancouver was our first stop in Canada and I’ll be honest: it wasn’t love at first sight. When we arrived it was cold and rain was pouring down from a dark-grey sky.

The Best Things To Do In Tainan: A Perfect Itinerary

Tainan was the 2nd city we visited in Taiwan and I liked it even more than Kaohsiung. Tainan was the capital of Taiwan from 1683 until 1887 and has plenty of historic sites to explore. Despite having a population close to 2 million, Tainan city center (where most of the sightseeing places are) is very walkable. Or, do as we…
