Making a Trail

Do not go where the path may lead, go instead where there is no path and leave a trail.

Hong Kong cannot be more different than Beijing. This place is a bustling metropolis with clean streets, organized subways, and no pollution. It did rain every day we were here, but we had a great time. The geography is somewhat like San Francisco: a small city nestled against big hills, and an area across the […]

My Dim Sum Hajj is finally complete. Earlier today becky and I went to Tim Ho Wan. It is considered to be the cheapest restaurant to get a michelen star. Honestly, this place deserves it. Everything we had was fantasitc. Apparently the original is so popular they have four different locations and apparently they all […]

Sooooooo, now that we are out of Beijing, Mike and I would like to send our full report on what we experienced. There are highs and lows, but for the most part, our consensus is that Beijing is a shithole. Things that make Beijing a truly unbearable place: 1. The pollution I’ve lived in Los […]

Yeahhh Buddy!

Here are a few random nuggets we have come across so far. Sweet jumpsuit: Sexy + tablet selfie: Kenny Powers left his ride in Beijing: Disgusting. Nothing meaty or italian about these chips: Too much fusion: Gross:

We made it to Hong Kong. More accurately, we finally got out of Beijing, which save for the great wall, was probably least pleasant place I’ve ever visited. Pictures and details to follow.

It’s a Wednesday, or maybe a Thursday. A warm and hazy afternoon like any other.

You have to see Tiananmen square–maybe the imbalmed […]

We are still in Beijing and will be headed to Hong Kong soon. We have a little backlog and won’t probably post more content for a few days. We went to the great wall and it was totally awesome. I cannot wait to share those pictures. As we catch up on posting you’ll see them […]

So I have wanted to visit here for, well, as long as I can remember. We did. It was everthing I hoped for. It left me speechless and I was so happy I took some spazzy jumping pictures. The pollution definitely hurt the views but there is nothing you can do about that when you’re […]

So, maybe I lied. There was one place in Beijing proper that was beautiful, and Mike and I enjoyed visiting. If you are foolish enough to visit Beijing in the next 5-10 years (despite our warnings against it, but before the pollution swallows up all living things http://www.dailymail.co.uk/sciencetech/article-2568531/Beijings-toxic-air-pollution-severe-resembles-nuclear-winter-lack-sunlight-hampering-plant-photosynthesis.html, I recommend seeing the Great Wall and […]
