It’s been over 6 years since we called Portland, Maine home, but it still holds a special place in our hearts, and we go out of our way to visit whenever possible. Last year, we spent time in Portland during a long swing of the US East Coast. Just the fact that we were heading […]

Here’s the story of my first trip to Mexico City. Work. Work occasionally brings me to some fun places (which has led to some wacky ‘adventures’) and this time around, it brought me to Mexico. Thanks to the unpredictable world of marketing research and focus group scheduling, the Chinese team who works with me on the […]

What a month. These type of travel months don’t come around very often, and for that we’re grateful. While it’s fun and exciting to see ancient wonders of the world and explore markets and struggle with languages other than Chinese, it’s also tiring. Jet lag is a beast. We were apart this month for ten […]

(OMG, my love for a quirky rhyming title that includes a throwback to Rent, best musical of all time, never ceases to inspire me.) There aren’t many places we can get to quickly from Shenzhen. Turns out, distances are further than they appear. And Europe is downright quaint compared to the vastness that is Asia. […]
