Today, I faced a fear: riding a scooter in Taiwan. You see, everyone rides scooters here–everyone but ME, that is. I’ve been terribly nervous about riding on a scooter, so I’ve avoided them for the last year and a half in Taiwan. However, I had the opportunity today to go to a lovely little restaurant in the hills with some fabulous friends, I couldn’t pass it up, and the only way to travel the narrow road there was by scooter. So, I hopped on the back of my friend Diana’s scooter, and we took off. It turned out to be a splendid day, and, lo and behold, scooters aren’t so bad (and I didn’t fall off)! It was actually a very scenic drive, and I saw so much more than I would have in a car. We ate at a great restaurant with beautiful gardens and delicious food, and then we made a relaxing stop at a coffee shop in the hills. This was a great kick-off to Spring Break.
