Hati + Ernesto taking a break and getting silly on Anping Beach in Tainan, Taiwan.
There are so many wonderful hole in the wall places and alleyways to explore in Tainan, that we’ve spent the past month biking around without leaving the city. It’s amazing how long you can stay in one place and never even scrape the surface of its true culture! I love the luxury of taking my time to get a feel for a city and, if I could, I’d visit every city this way.

In the mean time, I’m calling out to my fellow bloggers about guest posts and to artisans or clothing companies. If you’re interested in submitting content for review on the blog, please email me at RoadToHereBlog@gmail.com with your ideas. If you’d like me to style and review a product for the Boyish Chic section (for Eric or me), also please email me! I’d love to talk to you about partnerships.

Looking for a sweet night out in Taipei that involves scrumptious food, style inspiration, and hanging out with young Taiwanese locals? We were when we explored the Daan area next to the National Taiwan Normal University and stepped into the Shida Night Market.
The Jianguo Flower Market was an absolute breath of fresh air, especially as an escape from the rainy Saturday we were having in Taipei.
