We're Back Baby!!!!!!

You may have noticed that we have been a bit quiet over the past few days on the blog. To be perfectly honest, it probably has mostly to do with a combination of us being too lazy to write a post and also having to rush around from place to place on trains and planes, making it difficult to get on the internet for a reasonable amount of time to actually post an article.

We have been stock piling a couple of articles while travelling over the past few days, planning on posting them when we got to China. All was going to plan, HOWEVER, the good ol' Chinese government has thrown a spanner in the works... You may or may not be aware, but the internet is censored over here in China. We already knew this and kind of expected that websites like www.youtube.com would be blocked, but what we didn't expect was for our blog to be blocked!!!

That's right folks, we can't even get access to our own bloody blog in China to post an article!

You may then be wondering.... well how on Earth did this article get up here!?!

I am glad you asked :)

I was fortunate enough to be able to utilize my awesome computer skillzzzz to circumvent the Chinese government's censorship for enough time on come up with a solution where by we are able to post basic articles on a regular basis.

Unfortunately the articles will look rather drab as we cannot place pictures throughout the article (we can only place a couple at the top of it), but we can at least let everyone know what we are up to and that we are safe and sound. I am pretty sure that we can still upload all of our photos to the Flickr stream, so you can check it to see the latest photos (the link is at the top right hand corner of the website if you haven't found it already).

We can't check the comments section while in China, but will try our best to find a way and post replies if possible.

Stay tuned for the last couple of days worth of our stay in Japan!
