Hong Kong!

by Sharon

Our thirteen hour flight into Hong Kong was not as bad as I was anticipating it to be.  I ended up watching four movies, sleeping for a couple hours, and writing a post.  Jason might have slept for a few minutes towards the end, but for the first twelve hours he was incredibly productive (who’s […]

Vancouver Pictures now in our Gallery

by Jason

Posting while sitting on the street in Lan Kwai Fong, Hong Kong — Lan Kwai Fong is the “hip”, bar area where all of the suits come at night to let loose — we may be back here Saturday for Halloween. This is a quick update post about our site. All of our Vancouver pictures […]

Nature’s Stairmaster, aka “Torture”

by Sharon

This past Friday was our “take it easy day”.  After three full days of extensive walking around Vancouver, we decided to take a little break for our feet’s sake and do some work on our computers.  The day consisted of a self-guided tour of Gastown to which Jason took reins of and became the tour […]

So THIS is why Nichole loves Canada!

by Sharon

Before visiting Vancouver, Jason and I had heard nothing but rave reviews on how gorgeous and awesome the city is.  We wondered what could make Vancouver so awesome- wasn’t San Francisco, also a big city, just as cool?  It took nothing more than daylight to show us how different Vancouver is compared to other cities […]

Day one…

by Sharon

Our trip starts with an incorrect flight time (our flight was actually 30 minutes before what we thought it was, so good thing we got there early enough!), a 3 hour delay due to unfavorable weather in San Francisco, two seats that were not next to each other, and a bitchy passenger next to me […]

And the Trip Begins…

by Jason

It was a fast, fun, exhausting, and bittersweet weekend – filled with a couple parties, a TON of friends and a lot of goodbyes. It’s Monday night now; Sharon and I are sitting at SFO. Our plane has been delayed 2 and a half-hours due to the weather here. Two posts ago, I wrote about […]

40-Hour Layover: The Beginning of Life After Cubes

by Jason

Our first stop in Asia is Hong Kong. I thought I would fill everyone in on the upcoming fun we’ll be experiencing to get there. A few months ago now, we were searching for the cheapest airfare to almost anywhere in Asia (we had no preference on where to start). We were able to find […]

Planes, Trains, Automobiles, and Pigsties (spelling?)

by Sharon

Among the many questions we are being asked before the trip, one of the most common FAQ’s is about how we are going to get from city to city.  Although I think Jason is the more appropriate half to be answering this question thoroughly, I will start off by explaining some basics. I guess the […]

Our Attempt at 15 Minutes of Fame

by Jason

Sharon’s sister, Onion Jennie, came to Sharon and myself with an idea to pitch our travel plans as a show to The Travel Channel. When I heard about this, I couldn’t believe the irony — independently, I had been thinking the exact same thing just a couple days earlier but had not mentioned it to […]
