China, take 2

Friday, August 28th, 2009

It’s been 24 hours since I got home from my 12 day adventure back to China. This trip was fantastic as was Taiwan trip in July.
My main conclusions from this trip:

  1. Get out of Beijing! While Beijing is a interesting city, there are so many other fantastic cities in China.
  2. Contact solution, even though considered a medicine still is subject to bottle size limits when traveling within China.
  3. Anything is possible, but nothing is easy in China.

Back from Taiwan!

Saturday, July 18th, 2009

My only comment is this: AWESOME!

I got to see a few more things than last time, and this time there was no drama! What more can you ask for? I’ve got some great photos (300 or so to go through) and tons of great memories. Taiwanese weddings are very interesting if you ever get a chance to go, although be prepared for a whole day of festivities.

Photos will go up soon, in the mean time here is a really useful phrase to learn in Chinese:

I am lost, can you take me to your home?

Backpacking around the world

Sunday, July 20th, 2008

After college I took a backpacking trip to Europe with my friend Tom. It was one of the best experiences I’ve ever had and really made me want to travel more. That trip was full of feelings, experiences, and problems that only other world backpackers would understand. Last night while watching TV I came across a shortened version of this documentary A Map for Saturday that brought back all of my memories from that trip. Maybe to help with my dizzying array of choices I’m facing right now I should just take a year off and do something like this guy did? Tom are you free?
