Elephant Mountain Walk in Taipei, Taiwan

Elephant Mountain Walk in Taipei, Taiwan

Our trip up the many, many stairs of Elephant Mountain in Taipei, Taiwan found us encountering a man who taught us some acupressure, some orchids, an iridescent salamander-y creature, some toads, large spiders, a man exercising in the park and countless view of Taipei 101. This is definitely a great walk to do if you find yourselves with amazing weather while in Taipei.

Throwing Moon Blocks at the Lungshan Temple

Throwing Moon Blocks at the Lungshan Temple

I absolutely love fortune telling, rituals and "other worldly" woo woo-i-ness. So when asked if someone in our tour group would like to throw some ritual moon blocks for fortune telling, I was all in. I was made so happy with the practice that I tried it again on my own at a second temple. I think I might need some of these moon blocks of my own.
