Dang it! I'm going to get my Mom over here, she'll know (ok maybe not since she's not Chinese but she's Asian, so that's close enough, right? LMAO)

I think runningtwig is right . . .journey or vacation?!?

Dang! I even cheated and sent the picture of your tatoo to my friend in China. I was thinking you might have a spelling problem on your arm but check out these two links:

Apparently words can share the same symbol. I suppose that journey and travel really are one and the same but journey captures more of the spirit of adventure and brings with it the struggles and joys of life.

I think you need to order the shirt for twig the same way you make an order at Starbucks... I need a skinny tall.

That was fun! Thanks for the entertainment.

For what ever reason you didn't get the full links. Just go to the link up to library and look up travel and journey.

Arcane said...

Umm, I was going to answer before cause I know what it means and now that there's a prize involved, I was going to definitely put my answer in, but I see someone else already has the right answer.

Oh cool. Sorry I missed the fun. But I was in China! After being there, I got totally into the characters. So much meaning goes into each one. Enjoy the journey!!
