Event Recap: RTT Taiwan February Event at Elephant Mountain

Event Recap: RTT Taiwan February Event at Elephant Mountain

“If these 70-year-olds can make it, so can we!” That is what was coming out of our mouths after less than five minutes of our trek up to Elephant Mountain. We knew it was going to be a lot of stairs, but we didn’t realize how hard that was actually going to be! It ended up only taking about fifteen minutes to get to the famous lookout point, but by then, my thighs were glad that it wasn’t any longer.     The day was a bit cloudy and drizzly, but we were able to snap some good shots of the city and Taipei 101. We attempted to walk a bit further, but our stomachs seemed to be more persuasive then our desire to hike. We descended the mountain after less than a half hour, and treated ourselves to a big western brunch at NY Bagels.   Although it was only seven of us, it was nice spending the afternoon with two of our newest teachers to Taiwan and hanging with some old friends as well. As always, thanks to those who showed up for the hike! I had a lot of fun! Cheers, Mary

RTT Taiwan February Event: Elephant Mountain

RTT Taiwan February Event: Elephant Mountain

  Still have things to cross off your “Things to do in Taipei” bucket list? I know I do. So for this month’s event, I’m taking us on a hike that’s right in the heart of our amazing city: Elephant Mountain. Elephant Mountain is just a short walk from the base of Taipei 101, …and about a twenty-minute hike up to the top. (Note: Even though it’s a short hike, it consists of mostly stairs… so be prepared). It will all be worth it once we make it to the viewing area; it’s supposed to be one of the BEST views of the city. We can then continue on and check out the rest of the hikes in that area, or we can end there and all get lunch together. If anyone is interested in the hike but would rather go for sunset, let me know. It’s supposed to be packed with people on the weekends, especially at night, but if everyone would rather have night views of the city then we can definitely change the time! When: Sunday, February 19th Time: 12pm Meet: Taipei City Hall MRT, Exit 2 Cost: Free, but bring $ for lunch if interested Bring: […]

Event Recap: RTT Taiwan October BBQ Event

Event Recap: RTT Taiwan October BBQ Event

Located among a myriad of Japanese restaurants, Hinomai Yakiniku was an awesome choice for our October Reach to Teach event! Unlike many restaurants, you have to take your shoes off before sitting down at your table. Our table was designed in traditional Japanese fashion on a raised platform with low ceilings; we had to crouch while walking to get there and sit down. The atmosphere was cozy, with seven of us sharing two BBQ’s and plate after plate of delicious beef, pork, shrimp, vegetables, and more. And of course, the all-you-can-drink keg of beer wasn’t bad either 🙂 After dinner, Carrie and John took us to a cute little iced drink stand in the Dunhua area. If you’re ever in the mood for a spiked Slurpee, this is the place you should go. After that, we walked to On Tap to meet up with more RTT friends waiting for us in the game room. I want to thank everyone who showed up;  I had a lot of fun! There will not be a November event, but we are planning a Christmas event for the beginning of December. Look out for details on Facebook! Cheers, Mary
