Trailer - The Road Not Taken 走自己的路
Many people think that we are unstoppable, and the path we take is challenging. In the past, we just grabbed a map and pointed somewhere to go, but now, we know we are in the right direction to rise.
A great friendship shares many unbeaten paths, and they make us stronger in time. When the Ferrari engine sound breaks the silence in the morning, it is time for us to get on the road for another ride.
Without any fears, we join the force and prepare for a luxurious road trip to Nantou, the mountain region known for its magnificent peaks, forests, and lake views. It is one of its kind, and it is also the first time we make a road trip on our home island.
Starting from the poetic scenery around Sun Moon Lake, we begin our drive to mountain majesties in the heart of Taiwan. From the moment we close the door and press on the accelerator, we know this would be a unique and memorable ride together.
Before reaching the highland, we pass by Nantou Distillery to discover the award-winning new make whisky, OMAR. During the tour, you could dig out more stories and culture of Taiwan's very own whisky. At the distillery, you could also enjoy the unique "Cask Strength Tasting," where you could savor the maturing whisky straight from the cask. It was the perfect way to experience Taiwan Love with an Amber Heart.
After a long drive, we arrive at our new home on top of the hill at Impression Nordic Manor Club in Qingjing. It is time to stop and relax among magnificent landscape and setting, enjoying the Nordic style chalet, infinity pool, horse riding, and the best of mountain living. Towards the end of the day, there would be no better way to watch the sunset from our balcony with a bottle of fine whisky, cheering the extraordinary moment in the mountains.
A new day comes with a new car! Right before dawn break on the following day, we hop on another Italian beast, Alfa Romeo Guilia, driving along the most beautiful highway in Taiwan to catch the sunrise at over 3000 meters high on HeHuanShan.
As one of the most epic rides we have ever done, it is beyond rewarding for us to welcome the day on the peak and see what we have achieved as a team.
Between the high mountains and the valleys, we also enjoy life as a shepherd at QingJing Farm. It feels simply therapeutic interacting with the sheep up and down the grassland. Life on the high mountains is so pure, and it widens up our horizon tremendously.
Down to Lushan village, we join the indigenous Seediq tribe for a rural adventure. The tribe is known for the historic Wushe Rebellion against Japanese colonial forces back in the day and inherits great traditions and skills from their ancestors. From utilizing flintstones for fire, fishing, enjoying natural hot spring by the stream and river tracing to Jingying Falls, every experience is an expression of the daily life and wisdom of the Seediqs. It is a day we all share the glory and respect for nature.
When the driver's seat is open, we know we will be back on the move again. We then switch on the engine and head towards the next destination. Even after driving hundreds of miles, with our eyes on every road, we still choose the route that is less traveled by...
