December 22, 2011

It's been a long long time since I updated. It has been pretty busy, but still.

The biggest event was a 3 week trip to Asia I took with Kara and some friends back in November. We went to Hong Kong, Vietnam, and Tokyo, using some airline miles from the British Airways Chase credit card offer. It was really really fun, and the highlights of the trip was Hoi An, which is a town in central Vietnam known for their tailors and paper lanterns everywhere. The other biggest highlight was Ha Long Bay, in North Vietnam, which was so incredibly beautiful. We spent 2 nights on a junk and did a bunch of kayaking.

One of the other highlights was using those miles to upgrade to business class for the 16 hour flight over from Chicago to Hong Kong. We figured if we were ever going to do that, then this would be the best time. And even though it was 16 hours, it's the first flight I ever didn't want to leave. You have this comfortable reclining chair, a 15" LCD monitor with hundreds of on-demand movies, and people to bring you food and drinks whenever you want? What's not to like!

Other than that, there hasn't been a whole lot of new things over the last few months. Did some business trips to San Jose and Rochester, and went to Arkansas for a wedding.

I'll have to update later with some photos and all the Christmas goings on.
