If there’s one thing you should see when you are visiting Taiwan in February and March, it’s the Yangmingshan Flower Festival. There’s no need to go to Japan to see the cherry blossoms when you can view them from Taipei’s backyard.
It’s exciting when someone visits us in Taiwan. Seeing Taiwan through someone’s eyes for the first time is rewarding, especially when it’s your sister.
Motorcycle tours in Cambodia are a lot of fun. I’ve seen my fair share of incredible places from the back of a motorcycle. One of my favourites is a rural village called DaSian, 100km to the east of Siem Reap. To get there by dirt bike we head deep into single track jungle trails until we come out at the deserted Preah Kahn Temple.
Located in the foot hills of Mount Kinabalu, the area is best known for the Poring Hot Spring and Nature Reserve. The hot spring is managed by Sabah Parks, and the various accommodation options and dining facilities are managed by Sutera Sanctuary Lodges, which is where we were headed for a two-night cabin stay.
2012 and 2013 were not kind to the Kellenberger or the Marshall families, but we have had plenty of love and support from family and friends to help us through. The last six weeks have been especially difficult for us, but I’m glad to be putting 2013 behind us. We’re looking forward to a positive and successful 2014. Happy New Year to my dear friends and family all over the world!
Japan has long been a destination for any traveler dreaming of an excursion in Asia, where teeming mega-cities are offset by ancient temples, and provincial spa towns meet neatly cultivated farm regions and rugged wilderness. A Honshu road trip in Japan is the perfect way to see Japan.
