I am so done! Taxes, EERs, Internship, and (what else, what else…) OH, Naomi’s Fitness Challenge, DONE! (And 15 pounds lighter). I am so ready for the Spring Travel Season J Lyndsey is going on a field trip this week, to The Yellow Mountain in An Hui Province, for a little bonding with her fellow classmates. She is not thrilled… But just LOOK at this place!
I, on the other hand, could not be more excited to go camping at the end of the month, with my newfound Consular friends, to the Dong Tai Mountain in the XiaoWuTaiShan range (just south of the 2022 Winter Olympic site in Zhangjiakou).
My Mother flies in for a visit on May 11th… We’ll give her about 10 days to catch up with the time zone, and see the local sites, before we whisk her off to Thailand for some valuable beach time, and then on to Hong Kong, to see two of the most awesome cities in Asia!
I’m finally going to do the Flight of the Gibbon Zipline adventure when we’re in Thailand, and there will be a trip to Macau while we’re in HK.
Macau is known for all the gambling casinos, but Macau is also a mesmerizing place to just walk around as it is packed with churches, temples, and fortresses… there are also hundreds of narrow alleyways forming a maze in the old part of Macau where the people of Macau carry out businesses and work.
But, if casinos are your thing, The City of Dreams is a giant casino with high end fashion shops, a free video 'bubble' show, three hotels and the world's most expensive theatre show. The 'House of Dancing Water' cost US$250 million and the stage holds five Olympic swimming pools worth of water.
Mom will depart the day after we return, then back to school and work, where I will be thrust into the bidding season :-D
Hopefully, there will be many European posts to choose from… Of course, Lyndsey is putting some strong Netherland vibes out into the Universe. I’m just hoping to land anywhere in the Western European vicinity.
