I am happy for some hikes too.
Maybe we can form a group and rent a car together...

Ha, it takes an "easy hike" even to just get to my place.

Uh oh, now I am thinking of moving to Taipei and will be going there to look for a room to rent starting on Jan. 9th, so perhaps "paradise lost" if you were referring to my place.

Easiest hike near Taipei may be the Mt Elephant, with sort-of-free U-bike access point nearby connecting to Xinyi area. I believe someone in counchsurfing has organized such hikes before, especially for the great view of Taipei 101.

I have organized a more challenging hike not far from Mt. Elephant, as described here Mt. Tiger https://www.couchsurfing.org/activity/view/JIJXX5/great-view-rock-climbing-experience-easy-xinyi?utm_campaign=activity&utm_medium=email&utm_source=cs

It went well despite the bad weather. However, the rock climbing part may be a bit challenging for your arms.

Let me know what you think.

ps. Dan, you can try some temple accommodation by Mt. Tiger if you cannot find some place to rent immediately. Information can be found here:

I am glad that the temple accommodation list works for you.
I know your friend from Sinica when I worked there. I do not know him from Oxford, though. (let's move this part of private discussion private)

Checked the weather. It will only stop raining on Monday. Does Monday sound okay to you?
