  1. They did all that for $132 usd? well i guess sleeping on the street helped. What surprises me is that no one questioned why these 2 kids were traveling alone on the train and bus.

  2. wow..what a boss. lmao. strait up toured all of taiwan like a thug. if they werent caught i'm sure they would have easily ended up back at home where they started like nothing happened.

  3. The guy was backing away from the cameras but instead they get into his face more. Can't the dad have some dignity. Bit disgusting although expected from the media nowadays.

    Would have been nice to see the media help him book travel in some way instead of just watching and following like a seedy stalker.
