Lorenzo has been working and living in Taitung for about two years. He is well aware of where to go to eat and where to have fun in Taitung. “I really like Fugang Fishing Port, which has the freshest seafood, as well as Changbin Township, which is also beautiful. Whenever I have a vacation, I just want to run to the beach!” he says passionately referencing several beaches. As soon as Lorenzo finished his introduction of the beaches in Taitung, he began talking about the mountains he likes to go to. “I love Luye, which has beautiful tea gardens and grand pineapples fields. I would also like to try the paragliding there, but I haven’t yet. I’ve tried the hot air balloons in Luye, but found it quite boring as it was too slow for me,” he adds with a laugh. Probably only pilots are qualified to say that riding a hot air balloon is boring!
There was a constant smile on his face as he continued to describe his experience of living in Taitung for two years. He demonstrated that he is delighted with his life here and that Taitung is truly a beautiful place to live. But his first impression of Taitung was not like this. On his way to Taitung for the first time, he remembers looking down on Taitung from the airplane and thinking to himself that it is a desolate, countryside place. Fortunately, Lorenzo is not one to judge a book by the cover. He remembers telling himself that no matter what, he will try his best to immerse himself into the life of Taitung.
