Formosa Adventurers – FINALE!

If you know me personally, or follow my blog, you probably know that some friends and I entered a contest called “The Best Trip in the World” put on by the Taiwan Tourism Bureau.

It’s a contest that gave the opportunity for selected groups of bloggers to travel Taiwan for 4 days and blog about it.  We were one of the lucky groups selected and we completed our 4 day itinerary back in June. The final stage of the contest has arrived and we put our adventurers into a finale video, complete with a goofy music video at the end.

Remember that this was the first time any of us ever tried to put a video together and we had a blast!  We highly recommend that everyone get their friends together, plan a trip (to Taiwan, of course!), and make a fun video!

Also have a look at my friends’ websites about Taiwan:

Phil’s 老外的臺灣旅遊日記 (in Chinese)

Thanks again for all the support!

Formosa Adventurers

The Formosa Adventurers got a write-up in today’s China Times!  We haven’t been able to find an online version, but if you can read Chinese, pick one up and check out page A10!  Woo Hoo!

If you really want to help us out, go to our contest blog, give us a vote, watch the video and leave a comment.

Update:

Here’s Phil’s translation of the China Times article:

”英美聯軍”來勢洶洶”

觀光局初步認為有特色及網友回響多的參賽組中,來自英國及美國的四個大男生組成英美聯軍“FormosaAdventurers” (美麗島探險家)擁有高人氣的影片點選,他們規劃運動探險記原住民文化體驗的旅遊主題,包括花蓮溯溪,泛舟,臺東高臺飛行傘,入住原住民部落,體驗臺東知本及金崙溫泉

臺灣冒險及原住民文化的結合比臺灣人更道地,四個英美聯軍大男生還在個人部落格中,分別以中,英文介紹臺灣自然美景與有趣的旅遊經驗。

UK and USA United Forces

Taiwan’s tourism bureau believe so far that the team with the most special qualities and a lot of interest online is the Formosa Adventurers. Comprising of four guys from the UK and the USA, the Formosa Adventurers have had a lot of people watch their introductory video. They are planning a adventure sports and aboriginal culture-themed trip including river tracing and white-water rafting in Hualian, paragliding and visiting an aboriginal tribe in Taidong as well as experience Zhiben and Jinlun’s hot springs.

A combination of Taiwanese adventure and aboriginal culture that is very authentic Taiwanese. The team also write about Taiwan’s natural beauty and their own interesting travel experiences in their blogs which are written in English and Chinese.

Thank you!!!
