As you may remember… The Food Pervert (Tara) and I (and Lynn Chen of The Actor’s Diet of course) were invited on a stomach-bursting culinary excursion in none other than the little country next to China, under Japan and above the Philippines…
Somewhere… Over the PACIFIC!
Give up… And too lazy to look at THIS POST to see where we went?
13 Hour Flights can’t bring us down!
Well, Tara and I took on… TAIWAN!
Posing outside Donglong Temple with just one of our many fans!
Do you remember reading The Odyssey back in high school or maybe in college? Well, Odysseus’s journey has NOTHING on the one Tara and I took on… (#CPC)
This Peking Duck is quite the ladies man…
In fact, I have a feeling all of the people of Taiwan now believe Tara and I to be Laestrygonians (okay maybe not laestrygonains as we are not cannibals)… But we truly ate everything.
I just love sticky goo in my mouth…?
However, unlike in The Odyssey, no one feared Tara and I dead, for we were actually treated like ROYALTY... And we posted numerous Instagram photos whenever we had WiFi… Thus proving we were still kicking (and sometimes even screaming)!
Blonds have more fun… Just sayin’!
In fact, we were treated on the daily to gluttonous breakfasts buffets, 7 to 10 course fancy-pants meals for both lunch and dinner, a pimped out, Austin Power-esque tour van, swanky upscale hotels and VIP access to monuments and monasteries!
The mind is everything. What you think you become…
Oh and we cannot, and WILL NOT, forget the foot massages but of course!
Little did I know, my legs were to be slapped around like prison inmates in a few minutes!
Sure we may have been lured with into this Taiwan visit with “wine and cheese” much like Odysseus and his men were to the Land of the Cyclopes… But we didn’t have to fear for our lives for even one second… Except maybe at the night market.
A screen shot from the movie Alien or… Just a sight at the Night Market?
