The Around the World Trip of May/June 2011 will go down in history as the most I have traveled in the shortest time, ever!

May in California for a visit with the world’s best family and amazing friends.
June in France for the ultimate wedding and friend experience.

It all began with four train rides and a hotel layover to get to the airport.
Here is the Maglev, one of the world’s fastest trains zipping us off to the Shanghai Pudong airport.




No matter how short a stay may be in Shanghai, you should buy this blue metro card.
It is rechargeable and valid in multiple public transportation areas of Shanghai.
