Near Wenzhou, China, taken on December 17, 2016

This pool has the most turquoise water I’ve ever seen and I began to wonder if the photos of the Fairy Pools on Skye had really been taken here… 😛 So clear and pure that I wanted to jump in for a swim!

Huzhou, China, taken on December 15, 2016

Suzhou is certainly not the only place in the Jiangsu-Zhejiang area with beautiful gardens. Huzhou, a relatively small and uncrowded city compared with Suzhou and Hangzhou, hides the gorgeous Lotus Garden, a haven for people who just want to relax. The “small bridges and flowing waters” of the garden are characteristic of the Jiangnan (south Yangtze River area) region and are the symbol of classical Chinese beauty.

St. Andrews, Scotland, taken on November 26, 2016

Anticipation is a form of motivation that drives me to go forward and gives me hope for a better tomorrow. There is always something that I am anticipating, making me feel that I am alive and that my heart is beating. Last month, I saw the most beautiful clouds after a sunset in St. Andrews with a dear friend. Though I am not sure when I will see him again, I am sure that I will, and I am already looking forward to the next visit. And that is the anticipation that keeps me optimistic until the reunion 🙂

Hangzhou, China, taken on December 14, 2016

When I visited Hangzhou in summer 2010, I was so stunned by the beauty of the West Lake that I made it a bucket list item to visit this beautiful place in every season. Now I am visiting it during the winter and although there is no snow, the West Lake is still elegantly beautiful as expected. The willows along the banks add such grace to the landscape and I fell in love with it all over again. Anticipating the next visit – spring or fall – already!

Somewhere in China, taken on December 8, 2016

Before landing in Beijing, near the border between China and Mongolia, the plane flew over majestic mountain ranges that stretched on for what seemed like forever. Such a grandiose sight and one of the reasons why I would always choose a window seat!
