The Best Week.
Where do you start? With the geography: Hong Kong, Shanghai, Beijing, 3 cities in 7.25 days. Then the weather: flawless days, crystal clear nights, clean air, blue skies. Then the logistics: her place, a gorgeous hotel, my place; taxis, trains, in and out of airports, giggling like kids, stealing glances.
But the devil is in the details. The food was consistently amazing, and the cocktails were many and varied. We sipped wine, we attempted (and failed at) Bloody Marys, we napped and we got up early, and we chased cupcakes at every turn. We shopped, but bought nothing. We walked a million miles, but never needed to be anywhere in particular. It was blissful.
I can honestly say I have never laughed so much in my whole life. I have never walked around with such a massive grin on my face. And I have never enjoyed looking at, talking to and being with someone else so much.
Just the best week.
