We had a great last day in Taiwan. When the Typhoon moved back towards the Phillipines, the weather cleared up. So we traveled about an hour outside of the city to a national park. It was beautiful. Waterfalls, mountains, and volcanos...what an amazing site. We could actually see the steam coming up from the openings of the volcano. After the park we headed to the hot springs, where we spent an hour soaking in the water heated by the volcano. The Taiwanwse believe that it is a fountain of youth. Soaking in the waters makes the skin look younger, noy to mention that it heals several ailments from arthritis to digestive problems.
Then we did some final shopping and headed back to the hotel to pack up. Finally off to the airport!
It has now been 23 hours since we left Taiwan. We are on the home stretch...from Chicago to St. Louis. We arrive in STL at 8:25 this morning. We invite everyone to meet us at the airport to welcome Hadley home!
We have the best kids ever. They have been awesome the entire trip. The travel was a snap...the kids all slept about 12-13 hours of the trip so far.
See you soon!
