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!

Pain is my life, but not everything in my life…

When I started my very first blog I gave myself a holy promise to never write about my pain, because I didn't want to give it more focus than it already had in my life. Today I feel differently. My pain is one of the things that make me who I am, and a large part of my … Continue reading Pain is my life, but not everything in my life…

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. Back in the day there was 1 cable way up, but it would cost us 10¥ and we, cheaper than cheapest, did not want to pay that hefty sum, so we … Continue reading Mutianyu – the stunt at the Great Wall of China

Fisherman’s Village Market

"Marknad i Fisherman's Village" was first published on my Swedish Blog.   The best market on the island of Koh Samui, Thailand, is without doubt the one in Fisherman's Village - needless to rub it in, but I simply love Fisherman's Village. By far the best beach on the island.   As I've previously written every … Continue reading Fisherman’s Village Market

Old memories: Ruins and everyday life from Side, Turkey

To suddenly stand amongst all the ruins in Side, Turkey almost felt like stepping back in time. I stayed at a pretty quaint hotel with that "ruin-feel", ruins all around and perfect location; almost just across the greek amphi theatre.   The view from my hotel restaurant where I had my breakfast almost every morning … Continue reading Old memories: Ruins and everyday life from Side, Turkey
