what a journey! can't wait to hear/see more.


Love the tube of gochujang, and of course that photo of sheng jian bao! My tongue and lips feel scorched just looking at it..


Hooray! You're back! Can't wait to see the photos from this trip.

Eat. Travel. Eat!

Agree about the TP and everything!. Always great to have a roll of TP when in a more rural/less developed area or when you are outside all day. Toilets in China rarely have TP unless you are in a high end establishment e.g. a 4-5 star hotel. Beijing's airport is quite nice, but probably Terminal 3 is the one to be in! I haven't visited that terminal yet.


that's a lot of mileage.


The Mister and I have talked about making a similar trip but I just don't know if I can handle it. Can't wait for to read about the rest of the trip.


Welcome back Kirk! I guessed your destination correctly. I would be very intimidated with your trip not knowing how to read or speak Chinese languages- I can imagine being in the airport looking on that board for my flight! I am sure we are in for some awesome food stories but I enjoy the other bits also. It made me chuckle to think that the squatting woman was texting that man who is right beside her -perhaps her husband? LOL


Hi Kat - I hope you enjoy our posts!

Hi Dennis - There's a bit of a funny story about those SJB.

Hi Natalie - I hope I'm able to do justice to our trip.

Hi ETE - We usually take one roll on our trips....but this was a two-roll trip!

Hi RONW - It sure was!

Hi Carol - I think you'd have a blast.

Hi Chris - The airports are pretty easy. The bus stations less so. I saw a bunch of somewhat funny (at least to me) stuff on this trip.


I'm Yahooing my way through your narrative, looking at maps of China, looking up foods on Wikipedia, josh it's all good! Those of us who never travel abroad live vicariously through you, I’m spellbound!

KEA flyer

I flew KoreanAir for the first time about 2 weeks ago. I feel the non-Korean meal options at KoreanAir are better than the bibimbap. It's not terrible, but obviously it can't help but pale in comparison to the real thing (eg. no egg, no crispy bits of rice, etc.) Although I suppose it is the only spicy meal option available, and in any case, all the meal options at KoreanAir are way better than anything they serve economy class on any of the US airlines.


Hi AZ - Thanks, I hope you enjoy the posts!

Hi KEA - thanks for taking the time out to comment. In this case I was comparing the BBB to all the other airline meals we had on this trip. Meals from Korean Air, Shandong Air, Shenzhen Air, China Eastern, Sichuan, and HAL. We thought the Non-Korean options on KEA were, well.... yuck. I still think that EVA had some pretty decent, with regards to other airlines, food.


I can't believe you had a month to travel. So lucky! I love seeing airplane food posts. Hehe. And different Lay's flavors! I always find that interesting too. I actually took a bunch of pics of ones that my friend brought back from Taiwan and ones Boyfriend brought back from Philippines, but I just realized now that I never got around to posting about them.


Hi Kirbie - I'm glad you enjoyed this post. We were lucky to be able to take a month of vacation. I'm looking forward to your posts.
