Day 2 – Taipei to Sapporo

Finally arrived at Sapporo today after spending a night and crashing out at Taipei Airport. It was an interesting experience finding a place to sleep. Finally found a nice spot at a Sony center and slept on the bench. Was rudely awaken when all the Sony TVs on displayed turned on. Anyway its already 530am and it’s time to wake up as the morning travellers were already swarming the place. 

Tried to find the cheapest place for coffee and finally found it at Burger King. Starbucks cost around RM20 and the Burger King one costed RM 7. Guess which one I took. 

Found it. My choice for sleeping tonight.
Beautiful and green Hokkaido
Wow that was fast. First fellow cyclist I bumped into even before I step out of the airport.
It’s an almost 4 hour flight to Sapporo. Watch the Warriors and had a couple of wine and suddenly the plane was readying for arrival. Cleaning immigration and custom was a breeze and now I am chilling until 6pm to catch a train to meet my host who will be picking me up. 

Even before leaving the airport compound I bumped into my first fellow cyclist. Panda is from Taiwan but working in Shanghai. As roadie and his friends will join him to ride towards the South. Who knows we may bump into each other again on the road. 

I am take a day tomorrow to check out the city and will probably hit the road the following day. 

Day One – KLIA to Taipei, Taiwan

The day has arrived! Yahoo! on the way to Sapporo but need to transit in Taipei. What to do, cheap flight lah. Anyway box all checked in and now lounging at Plaza Premium before taking off. 

Box and bag ready to get on a ride to the airport.
Here with my cyclist friend Zack who is sending me to the airport in his new Avanza.
Check in was a breeze. Very short lines. I am happy.
All good and ready to go
