Antonio Graceffo

Antonio Graceffo
"Two Seconds at Moon Lake"

Antonio writes, "Here is another taiwan bicycle adventure. But, I have to warn you, this one is basically an anti-travel story. It deals with the concept of "what happens to a travel writer who is sick of traveling?" It is pretty funny. There is only one photo, but that is part of the humor. You will understand when you read the piece."

Antonio Gracefio
"Around Formosa by Bicycle"

Antonio Graceffo completed a solo bike tour of over 1,300 km around Taiwan. Along the way, he stopped to get to know the local people. He spent nights in churches, temples, police stations, and even spent a night with the aborigines, learning much about their culture.

His goal was to portray Taiwan as a travel destination, but also to dispel myths of the entire island being an industrial manufacturing plant. He was able to capture beautiful photographs of sunsets above lush, green tropical forests in Taiwan’s mountains, matched only by the beauty of the golden sunrises, on the Pacific Ocean.
