Sabrina and I have been married for just about three years now, and ever since we met we have been dreaming about taking an amazing trip together. We were always talking about where we would want to go, how long for, and when to do it. Last year we really, really, I mean REALLY wanted to go on a trip, but we were trying to be mature and somewhat responsible, so we came to the sad conclusion that we just couldn’t make it work.

Then we decided on a whim to book two tickets to China departing November 4th and flying home from Thailand, on January 15th.

Two and a half months, on a budget thinner than a sheet of tin foil. What the heck were we thinking?

“What’s going to happen to us tomorrow? Are we still going to be around? Are we still going to have the energy, the thirst for adventure, the desire to see something new? Are we getting any younger? What kind of life do we want?”

We were thinking this: If I look back on our life in 5, 10, 30 years time, am I going to wish I took the safe road, stayed at home, saved up my pennies, longed to travel to places I only see in my dreams and slowly, but surely, let our life get sterile and plain? Or am I going to think about the rush of saying forget the safe road, throwing it all to the wind, and taking off to do something awesome with the person I love?

A great friend of mine once told me “You can’t be too safe you know, it sucks the fun out of everything” He was almost seventy years old when he told me that, and I was thinking, I want to be like him.

So here is the first part of our trip, with many more to come soon! – Arriving in China, Beijing city, Tiananmen Square, and the Forbidden City.

Hey lovebirds, so glad you went! I love that pic of the soldier in Tiananmen Square. Those shots can be hard to get. Hope to see all our pics over some beers sometime.
