My 26th birthday was actually the best birthday ever!!
My boyfriend @aussieontheroad booked a surprise night at the Orchid hotel, my absolute favorite hotel in all of Beijing. Basically it's a boutique hutong wonderland with only 6 rooms. Our room had a private balcony!!
He then surprised me with a picnic on the Great Wall! He ordered a picnic basket full of goodies made by a guy in Beijing: picked, cured salmon, kimchi and jam, and we supplemented with bread, goat cheese, strawberries, and sparkling wine!
BEST. BIRTHDAY. EVER.
