my 2015 in travel

December 31st, 2015 / by / in: food / 2 Responses

I know I’m super behind in updating this blog but I figured I’d post some travel highlights from the past year. I travelled to Europe and Asia, flew on some of my favourite airlines, and got in on some excellent mistake fares. Here’s hoping that 2016 is just as fun! […]

August 3rd, 2015 / by / in: travel / No responses

  Wahh, this trip was awhile ago now and I have since been to Asia several more times, but oh well! Better late than never, right? …Right? Yeah, okay. This is just some random Hong Kong stuff. In case you don’t remember, back in December I did Hong Kong – […]

asia adventure: tokyo again

I know I just came BACK from Tokyo, but this is about visiting Tokyo on my previous Asia trip. (Yeah, yeah, I’m slow to update this, I know. Or maybe I just go to Tokyo too often?) Anyway, we had two nights in Tokyo on this trip, but I actually […]

If you visit Shanghai, you’ll probably visit People’s Square and People’s Park. They’re a major tourist attraction and central to a lot of shopping, museums, food, and other stuff in Shanghai. Definitely check out the two dumpling shops on Huanghe Road (mentioned below) and be careful of people trying to scam […]

more dumplings

As promised, MORE DUMPLINGS. The above picture is actually a steamed bun that Mike would procure every morning from a street vendor near our hotel. Of course, these buns were extremely tasty and cost like $0.20 CAD. Because China. A random alleyway somewhere in the French Concession. Getting directions to… […]
