卧虎山 Crouching Tiger Mountain 

Today I hiked up The Great Wall of China to the top of Wohushan (卧虎山) or Crouching Tiger mountain.

It was not an easy climb, but the views made it incredibly worth it.  This section of the wall has not been reconstructed since the Ming Dynasty -- so much of it was in ruins.

Beijing Trip

I's not about the destination -- it's about the journey.

I've always disagreed strongly with this idea. I love to visit new places, but I have the actual traveling part. But this post isn't about the destination because I haven't even made it that far yet

Why I Stopped Drinking Alcohol

I made the decision to stop drinking alcohol several weeks ago.   I didn't really tell any of my friends or family, because I didn't really want to be judged for such a silly and simple thing.  I also didn't want people to think I was judging them for drinking. However now I've hit a bit of a wall and am having a hard time sticking with this no alcohol thing.
