My Winter Vacation

When it comes to having a winter vacation, I believe that no one, especially students, will say no to it. Neither do I, of course. Because of a special visitor’s coming, my winter vacation of 2009 was definitely one of the most unforgettable ones in my whole life. By showing my American friend, Council, around Taipei, which is the most prosperous city in Taiwan, not only did he learned how energetic the life in Taiwan is, but I had a chance meeting some interesting people as well.


In those days, we enjoyed our cultural and knowledgeable travel to the National Palace Museum, an adventurous journey to Taipei Zoo, and a must-seen and breathtaking spot, which is the tallest building around the world, Taipei 101. Besides those daily sightseeing, we also had a great time hanging out at night to some famous spots like night markets in Shihlin and Huahsi street to try some different kinds of local snacks or to coffee shops to talk about everyone’s unforgettable traveling experiences and people we met.

In this trip, I also met two of Council’s friends. One of them is a well-known poet whose work”A Beautiful Mistake” was familiar to me. Both Council and I were really lucky to be able to have a lunch with him and to listen to him recite the poem for us. Wasn’t it great? In addition to meeting the respectful poet, we went to the Studio Classroom magazine company on the other day since Council’s friend, Fiona, works as an English teacher there. When being introduced to her, I was quite excited about being able to shake hands with the teacher whom I can see on TV every day. After she showed us around the studio, we all learned lots about the producing progress of TV programs. It’s always been a great thing for me to make new friends from various careers.

Thanks to my friend’s visit, not only did I enjoy a relaxing winter break and experience Taipei’s life style, but I also had chances to get acquainted with his two nice friends. This year’s winter vacation is no doubt to be the greatest one I’ve ever had.
