Road To Wedlock VI: 到了 (arrived)!

weddingprev01.jpgAlright, I had big plans to be able to squeeze in a post giving the details of the wedding sometime during the last few days of being in Suzhou between tropical islands (Hainan – Koh Chang) … alas it was not meant to be.

So, this is all I’ve time for at the moment – a fire on the keys update just to say all went well, despite looking grim a handful of times. The ceremony went off without a hitch and my family’s visit has gone quite well – luckily they’ve no blogs to contradict that 😉

I didn’t quite realize that hosting them would really be a dawn to dusk job, and so I over-estimated the amount of time I’d have to do other things. I’ve now only an hour and a half before we head to Shanghai for the day before heading home (for them) and Thailand (for the wife -god I love that- and I)… it might be time for me to put a bit of exploratory work into where exactly I’m going in Thailand.

All this to say, it went great, I’ve had a smashing time hosting my family and introducing them to Chinese culture (dirty toilets, strange food, and more fireworks than anywhere else on earth)…

A bigger, better and more photo-infused post to follow upon my return from Thailand.

  1. Looking at how perfectly beautiful the photo is, and also thinking of how I wasn’t there to see it, brought tears to my eyes.

    I already said congratulations, but heck, Congratulations! 😀
    Hope you had a terrific honeymoon.

  2. Hey thanks guys! Just about to get on the FASTEST TRAIN IN THE WORLD and head to the Pudong Airport to grab my flight to Thailand… thought now might be the right time to figure out where I’m going in Bangkok… wish us luck!

  3. I didn’t know you were going to Thailand. I know a great chick in Bangkok who could maybe show you around, let me know if you want her contact info. She speaks pretty good Chinese (but not much English, I’m afraid)

  4. Congratulations Ryan!! That is an awsome picture of you to. As per Cory’s post, I will be in that club soon. Hope you have a fantastic honeymoon!! Take care.

    Love YA!!
