Taipei Pride

Last weekend I took another trip to Taipei because it was Pride weekend 🙂 A few friends from Shanghai went; I’m always happy to visit Jana and Ellie, so, win-win.

It was my first pride and I was very prepared – I’m German after all 🙂 I bought a bunch of accessories during my US trip and lots of gold tattoos on Taobao. The parade was on Saturday and we had a lot of fun getting ready for it. And by getting ready, I mean applying those gold tattoos and lots of glitter.

Besides going to Pride, we also ate. Ellie has a list of places to try and we did 3 of them – all were great! We had dinner at La Mesa, a Spanish restaurant, brunch at The SPOT, a cute cafe with yummy food, and one more brunch at Herban, another great find. 3 spots down, 154 to go!

In addition to that, chocolate xiaolongbao at Din Tai Fung were a must of course, as well as another trip to the night market (not pictured, but same yummy stuff as last time).

So it was an all around fantastic weekend with lovely people, great weather and amazing food 🙂
