5 reasons why you need to visit a tea plantation when in China!

  A visit to a tea plantation feels like a must when you're in the country of tea - China! I'd never visited one before and this time I only tagged along mainly to do an excursion - and hopefully get some photos out of it. I'm not that into tea, so why visit a … Continue reading 5 reasons why you need to visit a tea plantation when in China!

Traditional Tai Chi School – Yangshuo, China

So, I'm finally here at my Tai Chi Chen school in Yangshuo - Yangshuo Traditional Tai Chi School, and I've been here for about 4-5 weeks.

Wednesday Words: Confucius says slow

This time "Wednesday Words" is a quote I feel is quite right for me at the moment. I've spent almost 5 weeks here at "Yangshuo Traditional Tai Chi School" in Jima, and haven't learned a thing!

Mutianyu – the stunt at the Great Wall of China

So, last time I was here, back in 1994, we visited Mutianyu, one of the most visited parts of the Great Wall of China.

What a disgrace... 🙂   A visit at Wat Plai Laem is almost compulsory when living on Koh Samui, Thailand during … Continue reading Old memories: Wat Plai Laem, Samui

Waterfalls, Victoria Falls and a swimming pool

"Vattenfall, Victoria Falls och en swimmingpool" was first published on my Swedish Blog.     For those of you who don't know me - inside and out - I love waterfalls. There is just not anything quite as wonderful in the whole world, not even cats! Sorry, my sweeties... ❤   So, when I was offered to … Continue reading Waterfalls, Victoria Falls and a swimming pool

Chipangali Wildlife Orphanage

"Chipangali Wildlife Orphanage - min drömresa!" was first published on my Swedish Blog. Yo! Long time no hear!   What have you been up to? No, wait... let me... because in my world (to steal someone's expression) I have something very important to tell you! About me! 😛   After a long, long year without … Continue reading Chipangali Wildlife Orphanage

Photo of the Week – grandfather

As I mentioned last Sunday, I've managed to throw myself into a new exciting project: scanning old photographs. Today I'm sharing a photo taken in 1964 of my grandfather Håkan Larsson. I've done quite a bit post editing, as you probably can tell. One of my first attempts at colourising, and I really enjoy it, so … Continue reading Photo of the Week – grandfather
