Tiny Curved House in Taiwan

Just ran across this photo from a blog post in 2013. It was sent us by Island Woman MJ. She wrote the photographer (whose name we didn’t get), who replied (Google Translate wasn’t that good 6 years ago):


Thank you like my photos

This little house in a green park

The park is located in Yilan, Taiwan

Taiwan is a rainy island

After the rain from upstream many Driftwood

There are several college students using driftwood and some abandoned building materials to build a small house

This cute little house is now the Green Park show

Taiwan is a mountainous and river country inhabited by friendly people

I hope you have the opportunity to travel to this country
