Back from Paradise

We're baaaack!!!! We arrived home early Saturday morning and were greeted with a cool 93 degree weather in our no air con made for a lovely ride home from the airport. Although, I must say, we didn't care much seeing as how we're still on vacation high from all the things we've seen this past week. It was also nice to be able to just unplug, relax, and spend time 'in the moment'.

I now know why people fall in love with Cambodia when they visit. It's such a vibrant culture, with fantastic food and even kinder people. We actually started scheming ways that we could move there. It's a habit of ours anytime we travel abroad. Some people call it fickle, we'd like to just think of ourselves as dreamers...and indecisive.

I can't wait to fill you all in on our adventures wandering the streets of Shanghai (which the photo is of. Since we had a 10 hour layover there we decided to go and explore a surrounding area), venturing through temple ruins in Angkor and our motorbike trip from Phnom Penh to Siem Reap (which I'm just now starting to get the feeling back in my bum from being on a bike for that long). So stay tuned these next couple weeks!
