A few weeks back, Tad and I took a weekend vacation to one of the many smaller islands surrounding Taiwan. This one is called Xiao Liou Chio. We hopped a bus after our language school and took the following day off, so we could stay the night (enjoying 2 days on the island). It was a very short stay, but we had SO much fun and the place was absolutely gorgeous!! We hope we can go back again some time in the future.

This island is a reef island, as seen by the shore line.
There were SO many neat sights under the water!!

Vase Rock - one of the many neat tourist sites
Our mode of transportation while on the island was by scooter - here we are touring the island
