Hi, I’ve just started listening to your Podcast since you were one of a few who’se covered my country, the Maldives. I’ve been hooked ever since and was especially excited after listening to your Eastern Taiwan episode (I’ve always wanted a mountain setting hiking or biking holiday). But since Taiwan would involve a Visa, I’m searching for alternative hilly holiday areas such as Munnar in Southern India. Love your podcast, Raaidh
