How to Build a Portfolio Website

Lately, I've been seeing a lot of questions on LinkedIn about building a website. There are literally 1,000's of ways to get going and it can be daunting for people with limited or no web experience to determine the best set of tools to use. For our purposes today, we...

Totally Awesome New Tool for Web Testing

Got a new site, or a site that needs some help? Check out Clue, "A fun and easy way to test what people remember on your website." I asked my Tweeps to take a 1 minute test and got nearly instant feedback on what first impression my site was giving. Excellent tool,...

Neat Email Signature Tool

I tried WiseStamp a few years ago but didn't find it to be elegant enough for my needs. Well, they've made some real improvements to the product and I highly recommend it for anyone looking for a fast way to build a dynamic email signature. It's free for basic...

Day Twelve Hong Kong – Lantau Island Buddha

Our last day in HK is a free day and we take a trolley, a subway, and a tram out to Lantau Island to see the giant, bronze Buddha. The tram is about 30 minutes and goes over two small mountains, with views of the ocean and surrounding jungles. We can see the Buddha...

Day Eleven Hong Kong – Victoria Peak & Night Market

On our way to Victoria Peak Calvin gives us some history about Hong Kong, it's British roots and the changes since the handover. We learn that the one child policy is not effective in HK and that they still have an alternate form of government – they call it a "one...

Day Ten Hong Kong Central District

We get to sleep in until 830, which is so awesome!! Shawn takes us to the airport and 7 of us head to Hong Kong. After a lovely flight over the tropical islands, we land in Hong Kong and meet our new guide, Calvin. He is wearing a face mask and explains that his wife...

Day Nine Shanghai Jin Mao Tower and the Bund

We have our first free morning in Shanghai, but only a few hours. We go to the local market to do some shopping and have a quick lunch before reconvening at the hotel to head to Jin Mao tower. We meet a few junior high boys that help us to find the market we were...

Day Eight Shanghai Imperial Gardens, Jade Temple and More

This is one of our biggest days, with stops at the Jade Temple, Shanghai University, a "minority" restaurant, a silk factory, the Imperial Gardens and shops, and an acrobatics show, and it starts off with a bang... An incredible thunderstorm moves through Shanghai and...

Day Seven – Reed Flute Cave & Guilin

In the morning we went to Reed Flute Cave, a large cave with lots of interesting rock formations. The rocks are backlit with neon, making a unique experience.  It felt pretty touristy but was a nice break from the heat and humidity. The group took a very long time...

Day Six – Guilin to Yangshuo and the Li River Valley

Today we boarded a rickety boat for a four-hour cruise down the Li River. During the trip, we pass through incredible lush green areas, with the amazing rock formations that the Li River Valley is known for, and that are printed on Chinese paper money. The scenery is...

Day Five Xi’an & the Terracotta Army

The morning begins with another business visit, this time to Kami Detergent Co. We receive a brief on the products made by the company and a brief tour of the facilities, viewing the production line. Again, not very relevant from a business standpoint but fun to see....

Day Four Xi’an & the Chinese National Museum

We take a short bumpy flight to Xi'an (pronounced like She-On) and meet our city guide, Bryan. He gives us some history about the city and the region. We are all a little confused and frustrated as to why we have a second tour guide, for which we must tip in addition...

Day Three – Beijing Steele

We visit the Beijing Steel Company and take a tour of the facilities. As this was our first business visit on the trip we didn't know what to expect. I was a little disappointed that we didn't really learn anything about the operations or get to meet with any of the...

Day Two – Great Wall of China and Olympic Park

After American breakfast, we take a 2-hour bus ride to the Great Wall of China. Am struck by how huge the wall is, much bigger and steeper than I imagined. Managed to climb to the top and can see for miles. The air quality is also much better outside the city and we...

Day One – Mao Now: Tiananmen Square & the Summer Palace

Bejing. We meet for breakfast around 730 in the hotel lobby – food is a mix of continental breakfast and “Muslim” items, including eggs, greasy bacon, some fruit and bread, a few local dishes like fried rice and steamed veg. I try to keep it simple for day one as I'm...

Day Zero PDX to BEI

As we arrived in the airport, everyone is excited and overwhelmed, talking about all the things we are going to see and experience, wondering what our hotels will be like, how we will be received and what we will spend. Initial group consisted of Niki, Lee, Stefanie,...

Lotte World – The Happiest Place in Korea

Last night we went to Lotte World, or "Korean Disneyland." Although not quite as large as Disneyland it's certainly a lot of fun. The lines weren't as bad as expected for a Friday night and we managed to hit about 12 rides in 4 hours. My voice is a little hoarse today...
