It's been awhile since we wrote last so excuse us for our memory deficiency. Let's see, I believe we left off in Lijiang , where we enjoyed ourselves thoroughly. We met two Americans on the last day we were here and it was heaven on Earth. Dali ... Read more >

Deck The Halls

Another year where Christmas doesn't really feel like Christmas. I guess that's what happens as you get older and everyone starts to move away and do their own thing. I miss it, though. I miss decorating the tree, listening to Christmas carols, hoping ... Read more >

Long Duck Dong

Unfortunately, we didn't make our train to Ulaanbaatar, Mongolia for Courtney got deathly ill (AGAIN!!!) on the eve of her birthday (November 5th-Erin!) and spent the whole day sick and at the hospital. At least this time they didn't give me one of those ... Read more >

After our first night of trying to sleep on a speaker, we asked to move rooms to a quieter spot, unknowingly they were going to be shoveling sand and bricks outside our room at midnight. When we woke the next day we noticed a lovely new wall in the lobby.... Read more >

Qingdao (Ching Dow)

Tuesday, 30 Oct 2007 | Views [4123] | Comments [3]

This is our last night in Qingdao. It was once occupied by the Germans for 99 years so it has a little Bavarian touch to it. Some cool European architecture and it's surrounded by six beaches. But it is as cold as it is in Germany right now so it's useless ... Read more >

Quarintened In Nanjing

Friday, 26 Oct 2007 | Views [1200] | Comments [5]

Well, today we saw four white walls, a ceiling fan, lots of wood furniture and the back of our eyelids. YAY! Thanks to Courtney, who is such a LOSER! I've been getting the worst headaches for the last couple of days, but I just figured I'd take some ... Read more >

They call Suzhou "The Venice of The East", but we thought it looked more like Amsterdam without all the goodies. It was definitely a cool places with plenty of gardens, temples and pagodas to visit. Europe has there churches castles and China ... Read more >

ShangHai

Tuesday, 23 Oct 2007 | Views [542] | Comments [4]

We've been in ShangHai for three nights now and it's probably the coolest big city we've visited, thus far. There' a lot to see and do here. We went to a really neat temple called, "The Jade Buddha Temple". I didn't get to see the bronze Thousand ... Read more >

Feeling Low In Hangzhou

Saturday, 20 Oct 2007 | Views [523] | Comments [5]

As soon as we stepped off the train and got on the Y2 bus we knew we were in for a real treat. This place is gorgeous, maybe that's why they call it "Heaven On Earth". We had excellent weather, too. After we checked into our hostel, we walked ... Read more >

Dazed & Confused

Sunday, 14 Oct 2007 | Views [349]

I have ALMOST come to terms with the fact that it's nearly impossible to get a good night's sleep while on this trip. *cries* If it's not someone packing, the lady making the bed or construction across the street, then it's all of the above.  This ... Read more >

Oh What A Night!

Sunday, 14 Oct 2007 | Views [732]

We took a bus to the city of Guangzhou yesterday. It was about a 2 hour bus ride. Not too shabby. But once we arrived it was all down hill from there. The subway system is a breeze to figure out, but when we got outside we had no idea where we were. ... Read more >
