Asia Trip 2012

I’m back from my Asia trip (it’s actually been a few weeks already!), and I have so many fond memories from those 16 days abroad. I had such an amazing time exploring Tokyo, I seriously contemplated “missing” my connecting flight back to the States while at Narita… but reason won over, and I got on the plane and came back to New York.

I did promise to share my trip with y’all, but I’m having such a hard time sifting through my photos and choosing which ones to post about. I can’t look through them without getting lost in thoughts.. so while I sort through my experiences, here’s a taste of what to look forward to.


I know I had high expectations for my visit to Tokyo, but they were met, and then some. Three days in this city was such a tease, and I cannot wait to go back.


Our time in Bangkok was a chance for us to relax and hang out with family. The fruit and the malls in Bangkok.. the two best ways to beat the tropical heat.


Taiwan was a crazy whirlwind for us. We toured around the entire island in under a week! Our family lives all over the country, so this was our itinerary: we spent a day and a half Taipei (mostly in 101),


then we took a train to beautiful Hualien where we stayed two days,


then we drove seven hours all around the coasts to get to Tainan,


then we took another car to Kaohsiung and spent a day there,


and then took the high-speed rail to Taichung where we caught a cab to take us to Cholan.

Whew, that was tiring just typing. Like I said, there’s just so much for me to process! But I’m working on it, and soon enough, I’ll have tons of stories and pictures for y’all.

Have a great weekend, and hope you’re making the most of summertime!
