Whirlwind Asian Tour

Trying to recover from Daniel’s first visit to me in China. We had a lot of fun and managed to visit Japan, Hong Kong, and Macau as well as Shanghai – all in 9 days. Along the way I took some notes, so I hope to transcribe them to a formal travel diary on one of my off days. In the meantime here are some highlights:

Beautiful weather on the Bund in Shanghai
Getting to Japan and finding a sim card and a train into Tokyo in the wee hours
Super nice hotel and matching pajamas
Rain from a typhoon in our one full day of Tokyo
Revisiting some of our favorites
Our tree
Tokyo Disney Sea
Getting caught up on all the new attractions
Fastpasses for Tower
The adventure of flying NRT-PVG-HKG with a long layover in Shanghai
Nice hotel in Hong Kong
Visiting Macau
Hong Kong Disneyland
Losing my camera
Fast walking the various street markets in Mong Kok
Two days of relaxation in Shanghai

Such a memorable trip and I hope that Daniel and I will see each other before I get home next year.

Next up: Mom and Gary visit for a trip to Beijing and Xi’An. Gotta start planning now!
