China Instagram Diary Travel

Photo Diary #23: CHINA PART ONE

April 19, 2013

Sorry it has taken me so long to get back onto the blogging scene, my first two weeks as a backpacker have been completely crazy. I’m currently sat in my Bangkok hostel with Larzy, the sweltering heat is getting to us so we are taking it easy tonight. So with a night off I thought what better time to abuse the free Wifi and get blogging. My first week of travelling was spent in China, where unfortunately most Social Media  sites are blocked, including my blog, the only app I could use on my phone was Instagram (… although once I realized I could ‘gram’ my way through China I was delighted. Nine days without hash tagging would have been too long). So since my blog was was completely blocked, and therefore well overdue an update, I thought I would show you guys my Beijing Highlights over three seperate photo diaries ….

china1Street Breakfast, I’m not sure what it was, but it was yummy // Cold cucumber in some really tasty sauce // We saw all these gorgeous birds randomly bundled up on the side of the street // Scorpion Snacks

China2_Snake Kebab! // Again, not sure what this is, but it taste foul and was 46% (or some shops sold another version that was 56%) and it was only 44pp. We stupidly drank it and …. // ….ended up nursing a Chinese Hangover … // …which lead to a greasy chinese kebab dinner

China3Off out with dorm roomies for drinks // The two lovely girls we were sharing a room with // We then went to see this amazing Beijing band called ‘Sound of the Xity’ – it was a brilliant set // Woke up on the Saturday morning to gorgeous blue skies

China4We visited the Temple of Heaven // Me being a tourist // The Gardens at The Temple of Heaven // After a day of walking EVERWHERE and not using any public Transport we sat down to eat some well deserved Peking Duck

China5Sunday was spent chilling with Beers // Monday we did The Great Wall of China, so proud of ourselves. It was stunning and I learnt so much about The Great Wall that I never knew. We even got to ride a toboggan down the wall

China8Larzy on top of the Great Wall // Me on top of the Great Wall (I don’t look very happy, but only because I’m concentrating on trying not to fall off) // Pic doesnt do it justice, but this part was very steep // Me being all touristy again

China9Picked me up a Panda cap at The Great Wall // Made some Aussie friends who took us out to dinner // Yummy Chinese food // Beijing Beer

Go to my next post to see more of my Beijing Highlights ….
