... through the scanner!

The flight was uneventful. Bill slept for a bit, my tall Starbucks (which I paid for with some Hong Kong Dollars that had lying around since the last time I was there, 15 years ago) was kicking in, so no sleep for me. We are finally here in Beijing! 11:00am here, 11:00pm at home. Bill and I have been travelling for almost 24 hours since we left my place the night (or day, not too sure) before. I have never seen such a massive airport terminal in ...

... Qing Ming also celebrates the oncoming spring. So it’s a day about remembering the past but also celebrating the future.

The Wall was breath-taking and magnificent! It goes over the ridge tops of the mountains weaving back and forth as far as the eyes can see. The steps on the wall are not uniform at all. They are all different heights and ...

Two person bike. YOU THINK?

A travel blog entry by robyn.doppke on Sep 05, 2012

But, to me it is who is riding the bike that is funny. I noticed a lot of Chinese people share their bike. No these bikes do not have two seats nor do they have extra pedals. What they do have is a small padded or ...
