Long time no see, well so much as happened that I could film pages upon pages for a movie script, but that can wait because I'm here to just share something exciting.

As I write this I'm watching the Chinese tv drama Empresses in the Palace, the 5th episode. It's set in the majestic Forbidden City, it's a taste to what I'm going to enjoy come Wednesday. 

I'm excited for the adventure my family and I are going to embark on in one of the Asian countries I've always wished to visit. 

It's a blessing to be able to join my husband on some of his work trips. This one was on my list but we initially agree that maybe the children and I shouldn't go. But God being faithful to His promises made a way. So I'm over excited.

I have a list of places to explore, one on the top is the location of one of my favourite Chinese movies Laterne Rosse (Raise the Red Lanterns). The mansion is in Pingyao, some hours away from Beijing so I'm not going to make a fuss if we can't make it there. I will be more than happy to explore the Forbidden City and allow my imagination to play a character from a story.

The children are excited to explore the Great Wall and hubby would love to go see the Terracotta display but it's in a similar distance from the mansion I would love to visit so maybe it will be deemed to distance for an overnight visit. Also we are going to be there for only one weekend so we don't have to over stress ourselves to see and do everything in China. I trust this will become a regular destination one day.

In the meantime, there are suitcases to fill up with warm clothes, first aid kits to prepare and money to sort out. So, our weekend will look something similar to these photos below.
