Looking back on my initial trip away from the UK where I toured round Taiwan, it is one of the nicest countries I have ever visited. And the memories will linger long. Some new photos here courtesy of my Taiwanese friend Eva Jun. Each photo can be an Oasis song actually…TURN UP THE SUN.
What’s more is in Australia I ended up working with loads of Taiwanese people – as they are all entitled to a working holiday visa here (whereas China is not!). FLASHBAX.
