Flying 15 Hours With A Newborn And A 4 Year Old!

This year’s summer holiday to the US couldn’t come soon enough. We were dying to introduce Alfie to everyone and after spending so much time on newborn house arrest, we were in need of a change of environment. The only thing wrong with the US vacay was that it happening without Peter. Yup, Peter had […]

Our Crazy Camping Adventure in Tai Long Wan!

When my friend Petra asked me if we’d be up for camping over Chinese New Year, I was like “HELL YEAH!!! I LOVE CAMPING!!!” I was pumped. And so was the rest of the family. We’d been talking recently about a camping trip and this seemed like the perfect opportunity. To go with good friends, […]

Pufferfish Nightmares in Tai O

On Saturday, we visited Tai O for the first time. Tai O is a charming(?), picturesque fishing village located on Lantau Island. It’s known for its stilt houses of old Southern Chinese fishing village tradition. And oh my are those stilt houses photogenic. They have a raw, rustic charm that lured me into taking a […]

Kyoto with the Kids: Part 2

Our Kyoto adventure continues. We visit the Kiyomizu-dera temple, the to-die-for Nishiki Market, Fushimi Inari Shrine, the Yasaka-jinja Shrine, Maruyama Park, the Chion-in temple and many other amazing sites in Kyoto. We take in some delish ramen and mingle with the locals. Man, Japan really is the best.

An Unforgettable Week: My Mom and Dad Visit Us in Hong Kong

I’d been asking my parents when they were coming to visit us since we landed in Hong Kong. Not that I wasn’t used to going a stretch of time without seeing them, I’ve been doing that since I moved to Boston for college. But, even though I’ve been living far away from them for the past 2 […]

Stockpile the Earl Grey: The Full Davies Family Comes to Hong Kong

Stockpile the Earl Grey: The Full Davies Family Comes to Hong Kong

One of the many perks of being married to Peter, other than having a husband who can use his charm and accent (but mostly his accent) to persuade people, usually ladies but also men and always Americans) to give us an upgrade or a better table by the window and other than having someone who will […]

End of Summer Road Trip, Part 2: Perfect Idaho

End of Summer Road Trip, Part 2: Perfect Idaho

After enjoying a delicious breakfast of microwaved sausage patties, egg-like saucers and Dannon yogurt cups surrounded by very disappointed and forlorn looking Indian and German tourists at the Holiday Inn Express, we tore ourselves away from the sexy town of Elko, Nevada and drove 300 miles to my hometown of Pingree, Idaho.  We arrived just […]

Our End of Summer Road Trip Part 1: The Not-Vegas Parts of Nevada

Our End of Summer Road Trip Part 1: The Not-Vegas Parts of Nevada

When we returned from Hong Kong, we only had a few weeks before Evan had to go back to school, and Peter was home with us for two of those.  So we decided to make the most of our time and visit as much family as possible.  And that meant, ROAD TRIP! And first stop […]
