  • So we just arrived at the airport (Taiwan Taoyuan International Airport - 臺灣桃園國際機場)

  • here in Taipei (臺北市) and apparently our flight has been delayed and nobody told

  • us.

  • So we have some time to kill and we're going to go grab some food because that seems like

  • the sensible thing to do.

  • Last meal in Taipei (臺北市) consists of bubble tea (波霸奶茶) and a bowl of noodles.

  • So time for a little update from the food court here in the airport.

  • Where else would we be?

  • It is hard to believe ten days in Taiwan (中華民國) just went by like that.

  • Over it.

  • So we're now on our way to Hong Kong (香港) and really excited about that.

  • That is a destination we've been to before both together.

  • It was about three years ago.

  • Yeah.

  • That we visited together.

  • So really excited to go back.

  • We're not going to be staying on Hong Kong Island (香港) just like last time we're

  • going to be staying in Kowloon (九龍) and we're going to be there for about the same

  • amount of time.

  • About ten days.

  • Ten days.

  • So yeah, there is going to be a lot dim sum (点心) there is going to be a lot of running

  • around the town.

  • We'd like to explore a bit more of the nature just outside of the city as well too.

  • Yeah, we didn't do to many day trips last time we were there.

  • Yeah, we'll do more day trips.

  • A little bit of hiking and yeah we're going to hopefully make a city guide too along with

  • maybe some night market stuff, some food videos.

  • So we've got a lot of good stuff coming up.

  • We've had food.

  • What is our next mission?

  • So now we're going to cash in our EasyCards and you know what?

  • I don't want to give these up.

  • Like these have been so awesome.

  • We've been able to use these for almost everything.

  • Transportation, to get into museums, and you can even rent bikes with them.

  • Yeah.

  • But we are leaving so.

  • They're not going to work anywhere else.

  • They're not going to work anymore.

  • We're going to get our deposit back hopefully.

  • And we'll have a little bit of money on them as well.

  • This is where you return your cards.

  • Going to make lots of money right?

  • Oh yeah, we're going to be so rich after this.

  • Actually you know what?

  • We might be able to buy some French Fries or rice.

  • You know what?

  • My card was at minus three so you might lose money.

  • We're going to get a penalty for this.

  • So no refund for us today.

  • Apparently they have to charge you like 28 Taiwanese Dollars to do the transaction and

  • we've got minus three and two which is basically.

  • So we would have lost money.

  • We're going to keep these for next time.

  • Oh and apparently they're good for twenty years.

  • Twenty years.

  • So yeah, worth keeping.

  • We're settled for Taiwan (中華民國) for a long time.

  • Now let's go change money.

  • It is scary to think of how old we'll be twenty years from now.

  • Let's not even do the math.

  • Do you have one more?

  • I have nothing.

  • Yeah.

  • I will charge you one hundred five dollars.

  • One hundred?

  • This is not good for you.

  • Another failed attempt.

  • So the money we have wasn't even worth exchanging.

  • The guy basically said might as well spend it on souvenirs because the fee we would have

  • had to pay would have basically eaten up one third of what we had left.

  • Yeah.

  • Yeah.

  • But you know what?

  • Shopping.

  • I want to start a coin and foreign bill collection.

  • Well, we'll keep a small amount.

  • I'm not keeping the bigger ones.

  • Wawawah.

  • We have moved on to souvenir shopping.

  • Perhaps some pineapple cake.

  • Dun dun dun.

  • So we found something to buy with the leftover money we have.

  • Metal chopsticks for our future home.

  • And if you saw the vlog of us going to Din Tai Fung (鼎泰豐) you'll notice we also

  • have more chopsticks from there too.

  • So we're building up our chopstick collection.

  • Yeah.

  • None of them are going to match.

  • None of them are going to match but they're all metal so far.

  • They're all good quality.

  • Gotta like that.

  • So this is our gate.

  • C8 Taiwan Cinema Waiting Lounge.

  • So maybe we'll get to watch movies while we wait for our flight to take off.

  • That would be so cool.

  • It is just like being in a movie theatre sans the movie.

  • And look they even have the cup holders.

  • You can put your popcorn or soda right there.

  • Yeah, where is the movie?

  • There is none.

  • What?

  • Well the adventure continues.

  • Now there has been a gate change so we're running across to the other side of the airport

  • (Taiwan Taoyuan International Airport - 臺灣桃園國際機場).

  • Different letter.

  • So yeah it almost feels like we're never going to leave Taipei (臺北市) at this point.

  • It has been a really long day.

  • Sam?

  • Would you like to demonstrate what the warm towlette is for?

  • Behind the ears.

  • Behind the ears.

  • The armpits.

  • No!

  • I'm not going there.

  • I'm not going there.

  • Also Sam why are you wearing sunglasses on the plane?

  • Because these are prescription sunglasses and I'm blind as a bat when I don't have them

  • on.

  • So that is why.

  • Sam is going to be getting new glasses in the next few months and I'm going to pick

  • them out for him.

  • No.

  • Because this has gone on for years.

  • We'll see about that.

  • It is going to be

  • a standoff.

  • Haha.

  • Tata.

  • We are here.

  • We're here.

  • Welcome to Hong Kong (香港).

  • Long day.

  • We're so glad to be here.

  • And you know what?

  • The thing that I really want to talk about is it was so nice having a smooth flight.

  • Yes.

  • It feels like we've been on the most turbulent flights of late.

  • Yeah.

  • And it was nice just being able to relax and not you know white knuckle gripping on to

  • the tray in front of us.

  • Sam, does that.

  • Yeah.

  • I do that.

  • So anyways let's go get our bags.

  • Let's go find those.

  • Our bags are delayed and we are still waiting.

  • So at this rate I think we're just going to be having dinner at the airport and then making

  • our way to the hotel.

  • And passing out.

  • So we took the fast train in to town.

  • Now it is time to take the MRT.

  • The metro to our apartment.

  • We're going to drop off our stuff and maybe grab some dim sum (點心) or maybe just go

  • to sleep.

  • We're quite tired.

So we just arrived at the airport (Taiwan Taoyuan International Airport - 臺灣桃園國際機場)
