Es kommt ja nicht so oft vor, dass man Besuch aus Deutschland (bzw Japan) bekommt. Der @Fripi war heute in #Taipei und wir haben zusammen mit seiner Taiwanischen Freundin Doris veganen Lunch gehabt. Und das Jahre nachdem wir uns das letzte Mal auf der @republica gesehen haben.

'The Invention of Bubble Tea'

"n 1987, a tea shop in #Taiwan named Chun Shui Tang began selling pearl milk tea, or bubble tea, as it’s often called.

It would revolutionise the tea-drinking world.

Ben Henderson speaks to Liu Han-Chieh, the shop owner, and Lin Xiuhu, who first added the drink’s signature tapioca balls."

A majority of #Taiwanese do not view the #USA as a “#trustworthy” country, a recent #survey has found, despite most respondents saying they believe in Washington’s security commitment to the island.

The annual survey by #NationalChengchiUniversity in #Taipei found that only 34% of those polled agreed that the US is a trustworthy country, holding steady from last year when the figure fell to 34% from 43.4% in 2021.

A hiker walks along a narrow trail. To the left, a vertical fern and moss covered rockface towers above her and to the right, a more gently sloping rock face is also decked with ferns.
A vibrant fern leaf. The centre of the leaf is a lush green but the tips have turned orange.
Fish peer out of a mottled and dirty tank. The photo looks almost abstract, but if I were to zoom out, would show the tank embedded in the roadside wall of a rural house.

And the Australian Defense Forces are increasing their personnel size by 30 percent by 2040.

In the meantime, the small Ukrainian community in #Taiwan is eagerly building ties of solidarity.

Two days a week, in front of the Russian diplomatic office in #Taipei, you’ll find a man named Alex Khomenko waving a Ukrainian flag, raising money for humanitarian relief.

A typhoon had just passed by recently – which Alex embraces simply as “good flag-waving weather.”

This week, I had a second go at collecting every single one of the Taipei MRT station stamps in one day.

What are station stamps? Many places in Taiwan (museums, railway stations, temples, even some restaurants), have unique rubber stamps that visitors can ink up and collect in a notebook. If you hunt around every MRT station in Taipei, you’ll find one. They’re usually kept close to the ticket barriers nearest the staffed help desk, and most are located outside the ticket barriers in the unpaid area of the station.

When the new TPass (a travel pass which gives you access to all MRT stations, train stations, buses and YouBikes across Taipei, New Taipei, Keelung and Taoyuan for NT$1200/month) was released, I decided to try and visit every single MRT station in one day. I failed. But that first attempt made me even more sure that it was possible, and determined to give it a second shot.

So that’s how I spent my day off this week. 
It took me almost exactly 17 hours to collect every single stamp, and in the process of doing so, I travelled over 180km. It is not something I am ever planning on doing again. (But I’ve heard there will be a new stop on the red line in the not too distant future…)

#Taipei #MRT #metro #TaipeiMRT #台北捷運 #Travel #TravelTaiwan #TravelChallenge #StampCollecting #VisitTaiwan #PublicTransport #PublicTransportation #PublicTransit #travelblogger #TravelTheWorld

This is the cumulative efforts of yesterday’s attempt to collect as many MRT station stamps as possible. I got 106 unique stamps out of a total of 122. I was unable to collect the final 3 on the yellow line, and 13 on the orange line. I also skipped the light rail stations.

For anyone who is so inclined, I think it is possible to collect all in one day provided that you make sure you’re at the starting terminal station of wherever you’re beginning at opening time and take provisions with you.

Photography. A color photo of a bridge in Taiwan. It shows a wall of infinite people with helmets on motorcycles close together. The faces are not recognizable, except for a single old lady open visor, who looks a little pinched in the direction of the camera.
Info: The Photograph about this Foto:
Known as the "Scooter Waterfall of Taipei," the waterfall of motorcycles cascades down the Taipei Bridge from Sanchung every day at rush hour in overwhelming volume and somber beauty. In a city of more than 13 million motorcycles, nowhere does the volume of Taipei's most popular mode of transportation feel more real than when this cavalcade races forward in lockstep in a literal wall of motorcycles.

Since #SUCHO it's impossible to not be impressed by the #Taipei #airport. Every gate in the transfer zone at least is deeply themed with some environmental or cultural heritage theme. To the point of impracticality even: traditional canoes or reimagined bird nests instead of chairs and chargers. But given the stakes it's hard to be cranky, even sitting on a pseudo rock. #CulturalHeritage

Today I had planned to catch the sunrise, but I ended up seeing something far rarer: a Brocken spectre. This divine phenomenon only occurs in quite specific atmospheric conditions. The viewer has to be in a position where they are higher than the clouds with strong sunlight shining down behind them. I had been hoping to see one for years.
