Overnight in Tainan

This past weekend we took a mini-family vacation down to Tainan on the High Speed Rail.

IMG_6572It was our first time on the train and we were very impressed, not only with how fast it was, but also with how nice the train was inside.

Once in Tainan, we took the local train to our hotel, the Shangri-la. After resting a bit in the room,

IMG_6591We headed down to the hotel lobby for afternoon tea (in our case, coffee).

The next morning Jude and I were up around 5am. (We let Dad have a sleep in).

It was super hot and humid out again so we didn’t stay long. Instead we made out way back to the hotel for one last dip in the pool.
