Whew! We had an absolute blast, however there's nothing better than coming home and crawling into your own bed. I was blown away by the sheer enormity of Beijing. One could drive for hours and still be in the confines of the city.
By day three I was up to my eyeballs in ancient ruins. All of the temples and palaces started to bleed together. My favorite part of the China trip was our visit to the Sacred Way. It was so romantic strolling down an empty willow lined corridor. It took every muscle in my body not to hop aboard those marble animals and rodeo.
Japan was so much fun, as always. It warmed my heart to be with our friends of over a decade. No ocean or language can be a barrier to true friendship. We ate, drank, and made too much merry.
Hope you enjoy the photos!
