Travel Diary: An American in China
June 25, 2010 § 1 Comment
Once I’m back home in the States, I shall repost everything from my Blogspot and revamp the whole design of this blog, since I was rather fond of the old one. As for time being that I’m cut off from the HTML, the design, the old posts, and all that merriment, I shall crack open the spine of this new novel and update the world on my doings.
First things first- I love being able to spend time with my family. I only get to see most of them once a year, so I’m definitely relishing these moments with them. I’m also traveling a bunch here. Usually, I do travel around China a lot, but mostly as a tourist. I’m one of those oddballs craning my neck to look at cool structures and oohing and aahing at pretty objects. This time, however, I’m traveling more on a logistical note- picking up the sis, helping her settle in, and I’m about to head off to visit my dad’s family as well. In other words, I’ve been a busy little bee.
Anyways, I have been a bit snap-happy this vacation, using my nifty little phone to take pictures of all the yummy food I devour and other fun things I see.
Case in point: traaaavelling shots!
I watched a mammoth load (not quite) of movies on my flight(s) to China. En route to Vancouver, I watched Valentine’s Day (love love LOVE) and When In Rome (mehhh… though Josh Duhamel was quite the sight to see). From Vancouver to Tokyo, I played around with Air Canada’s entertainment system and saw Young Victoria and Leap Year– two very different movies, but both are equally impressive and spectacular. I also rewatched The Hangover, which was probably not the best idea as my obnoxious laughter most likely disturbed my sleeping neighbor every other minute.
Oh, boy was I excited to be home! I zonked out about three seconds after this photo was taken. Random fact- apparently the Chinese prefer their beds hard as ROCK! The bed I’m currently lounging on is literally a couple cotton pads and a sheet on top of a wood and leather bed. Comfyyyyy.
See ya, lovelies!
