Lin Family Garden

In the mid 1800s, the Lin family built then lived in an expansive mansion, and today it can be toured as an example of Chinese garden architecture. It is actually relatively unknown and, therefore, relatively uncrowded. And there’s no admission fee! If you’re in Taipei,I recommend trying to go there, as it’s quite relaxing.

Instawalking Blennerhassett Island

There’s an island in the middle of the Ohio River called Blennerhassett Island. The Blennerhassett family used to live in a mansion there, and now visitors can tour the old buildings and walk around the island. Today’s weather was predicted to be beautiful, so my friend Zach and I hopped on the boat that takes you to the island!
