Two weeks ago, I took the opportunity of leaving the kids with family and went up to Taipei for a quick getaway on my own (lucky me!!) My sister set aside a big chunk of time to keep me company, and I got to see and stay at a best friend's new place for the night I was there. I told them I wanted to hit up all the great bookstores they know and my wish was granted. It was so luxurious to browse quietly through aisles of books :) I've been wanting to expand our mandarin books collection at home, and I was happy to find some old-school gems for the kids there.
I didn't take too many photos during my visit but these few are some of my favorites::
