Badaling Great Wall, China, taken on December 9, 2016

Before this year, I had been to the Great Wall of China twice, in 1995 and 2004 (I don’t remember the latter but my dad insisted that we did go). This current extended China trip had to include my third visit because I wanted to experience the Great Wall at least once as a grown adult, how ever touristy it may be. The path of the Badaling Great Wall was at times rather steep and difficult to climb, but that didn’t stop the many (already very few compared to holidays!) people that were determined to conquer this section. Life sometimes takes you towards unexpected roads that take stamina and perseverance to conquer, and sometimes you’re going to need a rest. Just take a break and when you’re ready, charge on again! The rewards is in sight!

Beijing, China, taken on December 9, 2016

The Bird’s Nest is an iconic piece of architecture in Beijing. My trip to Beijing involved a short stop to see the Bird’s Nest, though it would have been nicer if I had been there during the evening to see it lit up!

Suzhou is well known for its beautiful classic gardens and a visit to Suzhou is not complete without admiring one or two of these. The layout and decorations of each garden are intricately and elegantly designed, a true classical Chinese architectural masterpiece.

Nov 02, 2016 – [Wednesday] Travel Favs: Hanging legs

Fenghuang, China, taken on August 14, 2010

The ancient town of Fenghuang in the Hunan province of China is filled with a specific type of characteristic architecture called “hanging leg houses” (literal translation from Chinese). I certainly see why they got this name – the houses do seem like they’ve got their legs just dangling in the water!
