We are off

Shoes start clean, and so do attitudes.  Everyone was excited in Los Angeles:

After our 15-hour plane ride with some intensely awesome screen time, and arrival in Hong Kong at midnight bellingham time (4pm Hong Kong) Mia’s report:

Mia: aaaarrggggghhh and blllleeeah 

Porter:  “whoa this is scary,” and “OMG, we are going on a four month trip to Southeast Asia.  This is crazy, this is scary.”

Mia and Poe next to a display in Hong Kong airport.

Once we settled in, we had the “best Chinese dinner ever.” Which was good since we were in china and it cost about $100 for a shared set of appetizers.  

Next stop, Bali!

I am a dad from Bellingham, WA, excited to share our family adventure through Asia. I like to play in the mountains and wood, with my family, my dog, and with numbers.

  1. Hi! This is a little odd… your blog post showed up in my inbox, even though I don’t know how I got signed up to follow the blog. However it is very interesting… because we live in Seattle, and our family of 5 just spent 2 months last summer in Asia and went to some of the same places on your itinerary. ๐Ÿ™‚ If you don’t mind a stranger stalking you, I’d follow your amazing trip. Ours was incredible and life changing to say the least. Have a blast!

      1. So cool that your daughter is blogging. I also tried to keep a blog, but didn’t post as much as planned. Walking in a big rain storm looking for a restaurant in Tokyo was one of the most memorable nights of our trip. ๐Ÿ™‚


      2. Yeah I think the most memorable moments might come from unexpected moments, huh? I was puzzling how we might be connected – do you know McKenna O’Keefe in bellingham? She is a student of mine who recommended I check out a seattle blog of a family who traveled to SE Asia. Wondering if that is you?

      3. Okay I am seriously late on responding. Never saw this. I don’t know McKenna, but I do have couple friends in Bellingham. Either way I’m glad I came across your blog!


  2. Hello everyone! This is sooooooo exciting! I agree Porter, this would be terrifying. Have an excellent trip, and I hope it’s as wonderful as the four of you! ๐Ÿ˜˜ Love you all,
    The Robinsons
