China Adventure

Thought I should post some pics of my amazing time in China. It was a very busy time – we hit the ground running and had visited four cities in five days…Shanghai, Kunshan, Nanjing and Beijing. I got quite sick in my last week unfortunately but still managed to visit the amazing Summer Palace, the Forbidden City and of course the Great Wall. Even managed to get a few inches of air there. 🙂 They were all amazing but the best thing for me had to be all the amazing, beautiful people I met!!

The incredible Long Corridor – 728 metres long, with 14,000 pictures painted on its ceiling. Beautiful!!!

Up on one of the watch towers. Seeing the inhospitable, mountainous terrain to the north

you’d wonder what invading army could ever be a threat.

The massive gates in the Forbidden City. And the ghastly dust mask.
