Once upon a time ... it was really just about going AROUND the island. Honestly, the idea of going THROUGH the island never really struck me. But that's what happened over CNY break. It took me less than 24 hours to head out west from home and come back again from the east. Taking the early train from Miaoli, get on our one and most important mode of transportation and head down to Taichung into Puli and up into the mountains, and coming back from Yilan! Googlemap shows a total distance of 494km!!
