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! Plus, I still feel as the stiffest person who ever sat foot on Earth!   Besides, I've missed so … Continue reading Wednesday Words: Confucius says slow

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

Beijing – the reunion after 23 years – complete confusion!

"Beijing - återseendet efter 23 år - ren förvirring!" was first published on my Swedish Blog. After having spent a couple of days in Beijing I postponed my flight to Guilin. I realised 2 days wasn't nearly enough for everything I wanted to do in the city. Plus, I didn't really feel like stressing around, … Continue reading Beijing – the reunion after 23 years – complete confusion!

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

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

Road trip to Matopos National Park

"Roadtrip till Matopos Nationalpark" was first published on my Swedish Blog.   When you're volunteering on Chipangali Wildlife Orphanage, you also need to go to Matopos, where they track leopards and hyenas. They go either once a week, or every other week, it all depends on time and other circumstances.   Our task when I … Continue reading Road trip to Matopos National Park

Animal introduction: Carla – the leopard

"Djurpresentation: Carla - min leopard" was first published on my Swedish Blog.   Another one of my absolute favourites on Chipangali was Carla, a female leopard.     Who is Carla? Carla is about 6 years old and the softest leopard in the whole world, if I could make this assumption without really knowing that many leopards. … Continue reading Animal introduction: Carla – the leopard

Tonstad – gorgeous landscape

One random afternoon we decided to take the plunge - challenge our feet - for some wonderful views - and OMG what a view! Needless to say - I'm not the fittest person in the bunch, so climbing up the small hill turned out to demand quite a lot will power from me, while others … Continue reading Tonstad – gorgeous landscape
