At our B&B in Seattle I made pasta with salad for dinner one night, using ingredients we purchased at Pike Place Market - habanero pasta, spicy seasoning, sweet basil, garlic, kale, cherry tomatoes, and pasta sauce. It turned out amaaaaazzzzing! Spicy, zesty, and oh so fresh!

The Summer Palace is by far one of our favorite places in Beijing, so we spent a few hours yesterday wandering its grounds. We went in a different gate than we had previously entered through and walked around the west side of Kunming Lake, which offers stunning views of the hills and buildings in the background.

This year we are doing something we've never done before. We are on a tour of China - with a tour group. So far, so good! More info about that later.

So we are currently in Wuxi, China. This time of year in this area of China, the peach trees are in bloom, enveloping the streets in pink. Absolute perfection!

We spent the day exploring Suzhou, known as the "Venice of the East" for its vast system of canals. Our tour included the beautiful Lingering Gardens, a 500-year old garden featuring pavilions, bonsai, coy ponds and, of course, flowers.

Hello, lovely instagrammers!! After a somewhat lengthy hiatus from Instagram while I worked on a new website for a new business (more on that later), I am BACK! We (@marvin.the.traveler and I) are currently in Seattle heading to Shanghai. Crossing our fingers that our VPNs will work there to bypass the Great Firewall of China!

Looking forward to again seeing where your adventures take you!
