On my third visit to Seoul, I wasn't alone. Arno and I traveled from Beijing to spend five days and four nights in one of my favorite cities. Because I'd been there twice already alone, there were places I wanted to go with another person and so we did. We also ate too much and drank too much and I'd do it all again.
Shanghai is a truly international city. I could see the outside influences everywhere, but especially in the architecture. It's beautiful, frenetic, and a little overwhelming. I went with my coworker, Abby, a quiet, young Chinese woman whose easy-going and see-the-good-in-everything nature made her the best travel companion.
