February 5, 2010 - Seattle, Washington, United States

05-07 Feb 2010

05 Feb: Linda's birthday and we set out for the airport to begin our maiden vouyage to SE Asia together. The Seattle to Taipei leg is approximately 12 hrs and was thankfully uneventful. We napped, ate (surprisingly well), and watched some Hollywood "blockbusters" that reminded us of why we spend little money on going out to first run films.

Taipei (literally "Northern Taiwan") is the largest city in Taiwan and has served as the de facto capital (provisional capital) of the Republic of China (commonly known as "Taiwan") since the Chinese Civil War in 1949. It is the political, economic, and cultural center of the country. The city proper (Taipei City) is home to approximately 2.6 million residents while the entire metropolitan area consists of almost 6.8 million.

After a quick layover, we boarded our flight to Bangkok at which point we flew Thai Airways to Phuket where our adventure on the ground begins.
