Adventures of Life in Beijing

Building Roller Coasters and Memories in Beijing

Great Wall Badaling Beijing

In just a few short months, our family will start an epic journey as we relocate to Beijing, China for a 1 1/2 to 2 year stint in this ancient city. My husband Mike is a part of a team from Universal Studios tasked with building a new theme park in China’s capital. Our sons Daniel (15) and Timothy (13) of course will be joining us, but unfortunately our furry friend Leo was not invited.


As much as I will miss Leo and all our other friends, I am so excited to have this mind-bending opportunity. Just like a roller coaster, there will be highs and lows, fast times and slow times, and possibly even some fear-inducing twists and turns. But it’s this adrenaline rush that tests our limits, makes our hearts beat faster and makes us know we’re alive.

So as we get ready to launch, I want to invite you to join us for the ride. I’m not a big fan of roller coasters, but I love adventure. I’ll try not to scream in your ear, but I might grab your hand a time or two for reassurance.
