Taiwan Tourism: Lover’s Wharf Kaohsiung

Last weekend I do what I normally do. I jump into the car and start driving. I’m not so sure where I am going to end up, but so far, I have always found something interesting. So, my final destination was Lover’s Wharf in Kaohsiung. A bit of an odd name for the place, as […]
