The Burkhardt's Adventures in Asia

(by Melissa)

Konnichiwa.  Welcome to our photo journal of our "Adventures in Asia". How did these adventures come about, you ask?  Sometime towards the end of 1999, Accenture asked Kris if he would be interested in relocating to Tokyo for a few years.  As we love travel and new adventures, we decided to jump at this opportunity, moving to Tokyo in January 2000.  We were meant to stay for 2-3 years, and somehow ended up adding on a bit more. During this time, we took advantage of our location and traveled in Asia as much as we could. We invite you to pick a vacation and enjoy some of the beautiful sights. 

Thanks for visiting the site.  Kris and Melissa
