China at a Glance...

Written by Doug on July 21st, 2015.      3 comments


We have now been home for 3 weeks, the same amount of time that we were away. It's crazy how time flies, no matter if you are away living the world, or home partaking in every day life..

Here is a small glimpse of what we got up to in the mysterious and huge space that is The People's Republic of China...

We trekked along The Great Wall for 6 days...

Your photographs are always truly stunning! Did you do a tour when you walked the wall or just 'wing it' yourselves? I'd be interested to know how easy China is to travel around.
