As one of the three group members of mature travelers, I open my eyes wide and seek opportunities for fun all the time. As Meiyen's B & B was about to open, I couldn't wait to invite John and Sharon. Well, John, who had never turned me down in this life, only replied nonchalantly, "Taichung is too faraway. Why don't you go by yourself?" Though I felt kind of disappointed, I didn't know that there was something else God had in store for me.
Then I won a lovely chance to travel together with a car of beautiful, mature ladies. As for the story, please read my next post. After a little more than two hours, we finally came to the legendary B&B. In the heartwarming grand open ceremony, Meiyen explained that the inspiration for this house actually came from her father. He had longed to spend his old age in the scenic countryside. Meiyen, with the support of her enthusiastic friends, overcame all sorts of difficulties. Several months later, she finally fulfilled her dad's dream. Of course, many kind-hearted people gave her a hand along the way to make the dream come true.
As we lived our day-to-day life and daydreamed without taking any action, Meiyen traveled between Taipei and Taichung. She had to transfer from the big city to the country, but she and her friends got closer and closer to her dream silently. Day after day, while we were still complaining that life didn't give us anything, her dream took shape, was rooted, and even grew. I feel very lucky to have such a friend. Seeing what Meiyen has achieved, I am encouraged to go after my dream with such down-to-earth spirits.
Meiyen gave me a chance to do something for her house. Meifong, who has always been insightful, chose an excellent spot for my hand-painted vases. This is the romantic rose corner in the house. Many visitors were eager to take a photograph here.
Near the B&B is the charming flower field. The flower festival is about to start (November, 17th). The brightly-colored coreopsis can't wait!
