We are home!

After an exhausting day through the airports of Hong Kong, Tokyo, and Los Angeles; we finally arrived home in Dallas.  We were greeted at the airport by our driver and confidant, Monsieur Lou (pictured below).  He was dapper as always.

We spent our last day in Hong Kong shopping in the Kowloon area.  We hit up the ladies market, temple street night market, jade market, and a bunch of malls.  It was a great way to cap off the trip.  We both realized how much we love Hong Kong. and can definitely see an extended stay there in the near future.  Kristin and I are both open to suggestions for our next big trip, which will take place at some point in the first half of 2010.  We are leaning towards a road trip and camping adventure through Australia, but anything is possible.  Keep checking the blog, we are planning a couple of week long trips in the coming months (Montana and New England), and are going to update at least weekly with randomness.  Tomorrow, I will post our final ratings for each locale.

It took me until the last day, but I finally found peanut butter toast

The very cramped Ladies Market, which actually
sells more than just ladies stuff
