Besides the history and the traditions, to us China was an explosion of flavors.
All the way long, your senses were tried at maximum intensity.
The trip to China was an unforgettable experience we would repeat anytime, but for a longer period of time, as China has always something to offer.
We passed through Beijing and Shanghai and we were very impressed by the gentleness and the curiosity of the people we’ve met.

And of course, we couldn’t miss The Great Wall. It was not easy to get to the top, as you can see by the warnings below, but we’ve made it 🙂
From Beijing to Shanghai we traveled by this fast speed train. At our return, there were no more tickets at this kind of train, so we spent 13 hours in a veeeery slow train. :))))) This experience really worth it, as we got the chance to travel with all kind of Chinese people.
