The Gondola

I decided to take my camera along with me today because I usually don't -- it's just too big to lug everywhere, really. I went to Maokung Gondola with my friend Stefanie, and we walked around the mountain, ate and drank overpriced waffles and tea and I almost died from food poisoning slash constipation slash I don't even know and then we hitched a ride with a stranger to get back to the Gondola, which was probably really dangerous, but I'm still alive, so that's good!!!!


None of my friends here know how to take blog photos, god bless them, I can't wait to go back home in large part cause I miss my favorite photographer and makeup buddy Massiel. Luv u gurl. Anyway, here are photos I took on the Gondola and while we were walking around the mountain. They look very pretty if you click them!!





Ok, I'm going to go be sick some more. The program I'm in is almost over so I'm going to have 2 weeks here to myself before I have to go back to Rutgers -- literally the day I fly back to New York, I have to pack to go to my dorm!! It's going to be a nightmare. But I'm going to spend a lot of time alone here relaxing and probably taking lots of pictures of my private adventures so you will see more of Taipei through my eyes. I hope you are well and happy and healthy, cuties. Bye!

Haha, good luck doll! I did that (34 hours traveling back from Germany then one half-day to pack then a 1-week roadtrip to school...) in my first year of university, I was so sick for the first month. Take care of yourself, and have a lovely time!

PS, first-time commenter, I think, long-time reader. I call everyone doll.

omg Arabelle! My jaw dropped when I saw where you are. It's been a while since I've visited your blog, so I had no idea you were going. What a completely beautiful and surreal place. And somehow, you fit right in, which is really cool.

You are freaking beautiful, and you know it. You have the confidence of more than 1000 freaking middle school girls. You are an awesome role model for the teens of this generation because you are just SO AWESOME. This is coming from a 13-year old herself. Please just continue to be amazing and kickbutt and beautiful. Thank you for being alive.

Your blog is my absolute favourite because I can relate to you. I check out other blogs and so many seem to be stick thin, rich and well, boring (to me at least). But you wear interesting clothes and have the coolest hair ever and your body is a lot like mine and I can relate to all of that...i've had every hair colour under the sun, i dress like a weirdo (according to my mum anyway), i'm a poor student and I fucking love it. If you ever visit Melbourne, Australia, i'll show you all the cool places to shop xo

Meg Davies said...

Your hair is always so beautiful. Gahhh if only I was allowed to die mine. Life would be 100 times better. Seriously though I appreciate the lime green hair.

Courtney said...

Hi i'm curious, did you go on the AID program? A couple of my friends have gone to Taiwan through this program teaching kids and stuff.

Emily said...

Okay, you are seriously freakin' adorable. I love your hair. Such sweet braids in a trippy color. I hope you're having a wonderful time in that beautiful place. It's seriously gorgeous there. I'm jealous. Oh, and I'm pretty crazy about your outfit! Such perfect leather shorts, and the fish top is ridiculously cute.

May the force be with you.
