A Year Passes Like Nothing

It's hard for me to believe that a full year has gone by since the missus and I went to China to see my brother. Right now we're making plans and reservations for our upcoming European Tour, but a year ago we were getting close to the end of a nearly-three week trip around China. It was truly the adventure of a lifetime; here are just a few of the literally hundreds of pictures we took while we were there.
