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!

Beijing, China, taken on December 8, 2016

One of the things that I insisted doing in Beijing when I arrived was to see the panoramic view of the Forbidden City from Jingshan Park. I remember having been here many, many (>20) years ago, but I wanted a fresh view of this historic place. And how magnificent it is on a clear day! (See the original photo in colour.)
