Havin' a Hoot in Hong Kong

Tuesday, 21 Aug 2007 | Views [658]

(Big Sigh), Hong Kong!  Although China is a lovely country, it can be a bit dirty and stinky in places.  Not that dirty and stinky don't have their own charm (would us travelers be charming otherwise?), but clean and fresh is also nice too; and that is ... Read more >

After our long overnight train ride from Xi'an, we arrived around six in the morning at our hostel, where we were told that our room would not be available until after noon.  We sat up and drank coffee until we were able to make our way into our 4 bed ... Read more >

We took an overnight train-first class we should add--from Ulaan Baatar to Beijing.  There was nothing else available until a much later date, so we accepted our fate of having to have our own little compartment.  Darn.  In Beijing we went straight to ... Read more >

More of Beijing's "Not-to-be-Missed"

Thursday, 28 Jun 2007 | Views [584]

After a much-needed day of rest, we headed out for another ambitious day of sight-seeing. We hopped on a public bus that would take us to the Temple of Heaven. The temple is located in a very quiet and peaceful park. The park is visited by many Beijing ... Read more >

A "Mao-less" Tiananmen Square and the Forbidden City

Tuesday, 26 Jun 2007 | Views [1014]

Exhausted from the trip to "the wall", we were unfettered in our desire to see more of Beijing. After a quick visit to the Mongolian Embassy, we set our sights on Tiananmen Square. The square is enormous, but we knew exactly where we were headed.... Read more >

It's Only the Biggest Wall in the World

Monday, 25 Jun 2007 | Views [7980] | Comments [6]

Monday morning started really early, as we were headed for the Great Wall. Despite the early hour, we were quite excited to be up early enough to get to the wall before the throngs of other tourists converge on it, making it crowded and less enjoyable.... Read more >

So we were off, on the road again. This time it was another short trip to Beijing from Tianjin. We arrived at the train station, ready to try to buy our own train tickets. We approached the station amidst a barrage of, "Taxi, taxi, Beijing, Beijing"... Read more >

Tianjin, China

Friday, 22 Jun 2007 | Views [4773] | Comments [1]

After our quick journey of less than 60 minutes, and pretty much a brief peek at rural China, we arrived in Tianjin. Up, over, down and out of the station into the hands of more taxi drivers. Immediately we attracted several who were vying for our attention.... Read more >

Tanggu Train Station

Wednesday, 20 Jun 2007 | Views [2243]

So here we are at the Tanggu Train Station. Let's just say we didn't exactly blend right in. Even after spending a year and half in South Korea, it was somewhat surprising how out of our element we felt, but alas, this definitely was new territory. In ... Read more >
