Not sure if any of you remember my last post about geocaching... ALL the way back in December... and not sure if any of you have given it a go?? But I have continued my geocaching adventures on my travels... I did quite a bit of geocaching while I was in Sweden.. I found it can make travelling solo seem less lonely sometimes.. tho at some spots, you really miss having an extra pair of eyes to help in the search!!
Anywhos, I've been on some geocaching adventures since I've been back in Taiwan staying with mum...
The first was in 鹿港 (Lukang) where my gran lives while we were back visiting over Lunar/Chinese New Year...
So, picture this... She's standing fairly close to the wall, I sorta crouch down so I can grab her around the waist and lift her up to reach the box.... sounds fairly simple right??!! Apart from the part where we're both laughing hysterically because a guy walked past and looked as us like crazy people!! On the second or third go, she managed to get it before I almost dropped her from laughing so much... (how I wish someone else had been there to take photos!)
I've been planning for a while to go searching since we've been back in 台北 (Taipei), but the GPS on my phone doesn't seem to want to play along unless it has some form of internet connection... So I hatched a plan after I got my new netbook that I would just take it with me when I went geocaching so my phone could leech its internet connection! *sings* I am so smart! S-M-R-T! */sings*
We went hunting yesterday for one on our way home but my phone decided to die while we were searching and it was getting late and it was pretty dark so we gave up and decided to go back during the day one day..
It was quite a nice day again today and we needed to go to the post office so thought we'd go hunting at 陽明山 (Yangming Shan or Yangming Mountain if you will) and check out the Flower Festival..
And thus concludes another episode of geocaching with Caz! Have any of you tried it?? What did you think?? Did you manage to find any?? Or are you an avid geocacher already?? Would love to hear your stories!!
