Traveling Asia Part 2: Beijing, China

Hi dear friend! Today I'm going to dive into our time in Beijing! We packed so much into just a few days, from city markets to iconic historical sites. Beijing is a very vibrant and busy city with what seemed to be never ending "rush hour" traffic. A city where crossing the street is a game of survival of the fittest (more on that below!) Our taxi driver from the airport drove us to our darling hotel which was tucked in the tiniest alley lined with cars on either side. I had to close my eyes on multiple occasions as we narrowly passed pedestrians and commuters on pedal bikes in the alley.

Traveling Asia Part 1: Tokyo, Japan

Hello Beautiful Friends! I really just can't believe it's been over a month since we got back from our trip to Asia! We took 16 days to travel to Japan + China + Thailand!

This is the first to a four part series all about our experiences, with (hopefully) some useful tips + tricks that you can utilize if you find yourself traveling to any of these fantastic places!
