A glimpse into our expat life in Mudanjiang, China, circa 2011.
Things in our lives don’t always go as planned. It happens.
After five months of travel I now understand why people try to do this endlessly. This is the longest trip we’ve ever taken, and I am addicted to living this lifestyle of freedom with just a backpack, flexible plans and my partner in crime. I love not knowing what each day will bring, or even what day it is. (Tuesday?) I relish the choice to do what we want when we want, and to be open to new experiences and opportunities that come up throughout the day.
You CAN find cheap accommodation in Myanmar!
Dealing with money in Myanmar is easier than ever before.
Some of our favorite food to try in Northeastern China, the region known as “Dong Bei”.
Though we’ve known each other for ten years and have been together for a long time, it’s still important to acknowledge milestones in our relationship and make it a point to celebrate.
It’s a way to mark our achievements as a couple. After all, being in a relationship isn’t always sunny skies and smooth sailing. We are always getting better at it though, and that’s part of the fun.
Taking photos during your travels is a great way to capture the feeling of a place and remember the people and things that stood out to you during your trip.
In the past I was a picture taking fiend on our travels, but my shots were not well composed or really very nice to look back at, especially for family and friends I wanted to share them with.
