Snow has lived all his life in the family farm alongside the wall at Jinshanling. Due to the difficulty of making a living off the land the family initially started doing homestays in their home and then Snow began guiding. In recent times they have constructed a number of basic motel style units alongside their home and Snows mother and wife now also operate a home style restaurant for their guests and locals.

      Because Jinshanling Great Wall has located little bit far from Beijing, so our guide should picked us up from the hotel about 6:00am. Hiking the Great Wall of China is a must do thing if come to Beijing. The Great Wall which famous around the world has magnificent architecture and layout. The wall built in the ancient times of China on the mountain to protect attacks from enemy. It is such a huge project with great purpose to protect the country.

  • San Francisco, May 2013 Day 3- San Francisco, May 2013 Day 3- Walking through Tenderloin alone…

    • From: jetsettindaisy
    • Description:

      So I started my day by catching the Big Bus to a stop in Civic Center and walking to Brenda’s French Soul Food. Funny story, my friend sent me a long list of places to try and most of them were already bookmarked 941954_10100165333377618_574131279_n.jpgso I’m guessing I picked good places. Anyhow, the walk was interesting but it was 11AM so I didn’t feel particularly unsafe. The beignets were worth the walk. I had looked at the menu and was unsure if I could eat an order of 3 when I was told I could order individuals. I had two large beignets (crawfish and traditional) for about $5. I wish I could have taken home a cooler full but that would just be stupid.

       

      My friend Michelle was meeting with me for lunch later, so I decided to try and cram in a969077_10100165333163048_264062609_n.jpg few more sights first. Frankly, I should have taken a cab from the restaurant to Lombard Street but here’s what I did instead: I walked from Civic center through Tenderloin back to Union Square. I waited for a bus that never showed up for about fifteen minutes. I took a taxi from Union Square to Lombard Street. Sound smart? No? I didn’t think so. I walked down Lombard Street and took photos before walking down to Fisherman’s Wharf. I chatted with my mother on the phone. She asked if I knew where I was going and if it was a long walk. I said I was walking towards the water. Sounded like the best decision.

       

      392366_10100164108267748_1537655849_n.jpgBy the time I got there, I was kind of hungry again (all those damn hills). I had seen Guardino’s the day before and lusted after the lobster roll so I got one. I ate it on the way to Pier 39 where I stopped at Trish’s Mini Donuts and hunted down seals. My mom tells me that 30 years ago, Pier 39 had a hole in the ground and you could see the seals from there. I looked for a hole in the ground. I saw double doors and people, so I followed it. I’ve never seen so many seals in my life. That was definitely not a hole in the ground.Seals

       

      As I made my way back to Fisherman’s Wharf to catch the bus back to Union Square, I stopped at the Boudin Museum. I had a coupon from the café the day before so the tour was $2. Pretty fun and free bread. I also found out that my bread personality is a Ciabatta.

       

      I met up with Michelle at Samovar Tea Lounge in Yerba Buena Gardens. Not really my kind of place but delicious matcha shake. I was pretty full so I didn’t eat much but we hung out and chatted and enjoyed the view. After this I went back to Union Square to do some actual shopping. I made another stop at Tout Sweet (I never stop at a place more than once) and walked around for a while. I got all my shopping done then grabbed a 3.JPGdrink at Farallon’s Jellyfish Lounge (awesome $6 happy hour and really good truffle fries).

       

      At this point I realized that I had done everything on my checklist except for the Ferry Building which I was planning to do on Day 4. So I did something I never do. I went back to the hotel to watch television. My feet were killing me and I was starting to feel fatigued, so I figured this was the best course of action (plus the iPhone needed2.JPG charging). I started packing and watched TV for a couple hours and then got ready for dinner with Carla and my cousin Kim.

       

      Carla met up with me in Union Square and we made our way over to E&O for dinner. Kim met up with us here. I had heard that the corn fritters were on The Best Thing I Ever Ate on the Food Network so we ordered them. They were okay. I’m not usually disappointed with Food Network recommendations but in this case I was. After dinner, we walked over to Sir Francis Drake and took the elevator up to the Starlight Room. I figured a great view of the city on a clear night was a wonderful way to close out my trip. We had dessert and I enjoyed an Absinthe cocktail and a sugar high. At the end of the night, I said goodbye to Carla and Kim and headed back to the hotel.

  • One-day trip in Beidai River. One-day trip in Beidai River.

    • From: x123456
    • Description:

      Since I was a child, I have been looking forwards to seeing the sea one day. In summer, as it’s getting hot, it’s the right time to do that. At night in Friday, I bought a train ticket to Beidai River.

         

      At 7 pm, the train started off from the Beijing train station and arrived at the Beidai River’s in two hours.  

       

      At 4:30 in the early morning after I brushed my teeth and washed my face, I walked out of my hotel and arrived at the Pigeon Park at 5 am. However, I didn’t plan to go in there. A middle-aged woman was walking to me and asked if I wanted to see sunrise and that if I did, she would charge 10 Yuan for taking me to see sunrise, but I said no. I kept walking further to the end of Gechi Road and I finally saw the sea. On the sea level arises the sun which looks like a red yolk and its sunlight was not very strong. Seeing the beach surrounded by a wall that shut out my sight, I walked further along the wall for about more than 200 meters and saw the broad beach where there were a lot of tourists. Some people there were suggesting going fishing, but I couldn’t swim although I grew up in a family where my father and mother can swim. Therefore I gave it up to go fishing with them. I was impatient to wait and just running towards the beach, where I was seeing waves of the sea impacting the sea bank, treading on the wet sand. Since it’s the first time I saw the sea, I took many of pictures of the sea. As the sun gradually rises, the seaweeds were on the bank and rocks came out of sea water after tide slowly faded. After the tide fell, some people who live nearby came and were picking up some seafood for dinner like shrimps, crabs and so on. Walking along the sea coast to the south, I saw that a few of locals were fishing, sitting on the rocks and a couple of tourists were taking a walk. Then I walked to a rock, and faced to the sea without thinking of anything, while the sun was shinning on me. I heard from time to time sea waves were impacting on rocks and felt sea water was splashing on me occasionally. It’s really a kind of enjoyment and relaxation for those who work in the office.

       

      last, I went to a costal beach park to see sunset. In the park, there is no transportation. Walking on the road, you may have no idea what will happen in the next second. Sometimes you can see people in swimming suits walking in the park and at this time, you could feel kind of regretful if you don’t wear the suits. Last time, it just happened to me. I just took off my shoes and socks and rolled up my trousers to run to the sea. As the sun slowly goes down behind me, sea waves impacted on my legs and I felt so cool. Back to the hotel, I went to a seafood restaurant to have a dinner, where I ordered a cool noodle, dumplings with seafood fillings and a stretched noodle from Lanzhou.

       

      Thus the trip ended.

  • Tips For Traveling To Paris Wi Tips For Traveling To Paris With Girlfriends

    • From: Funkidivagirl
    • Description:

      Last month I did something that I have only done once before: I took a vacation without my husband and children.  *GASP!*  I know, right?!  Who am I to be so bold and brazen, to travel across land and sea for several hours without them?  I tell you who – a very happy woman.

      Don’t get me wrong – I love traveling with my kids, showing them the world and having adventures together.  But as any mother knows, a vacation with your family is not really a vacation in the truest sense.   And while I love traveling with my husband, he doesn’t like to shop for shoes and he probably thinks that I talk too much.   A girlfriend trip was what I needed and what better place than Paris!

      I had been to Paris recently, once with my family and once with my husband, but I knew this trip with my friends would be different.   As we planned the trip via email, texts and a few face-to-face meetings, we were all excited, but also nervous.  Let’s be real: five women traveling together leaves a lot of room for drama and attitudes.    We were a varied bunch: married stay at home moms, professionals, singles and single moms.  Shenia, Christin, Natasha, Latoicha and me.  There would be five different personalities and five different expectations about how the trip should flow.  Since I had the most experience in Paris, I became the default planner.  I worried:  Would the women like the apartment that I had chosen?  Would they love Paris as much as I do?  Would we all get along?

      My worries were for naught.  Everyone loved everything about Paris and we all had the time of our lives.  The whole trip, as Shenia would say, was divine.

      Our divine blessing began with an uneventful flight and a cutie-pie driver (don’t worry husbands, he was only cute to the unmarried ladies) who was familiar with Atlanta.   He liked us and pitied us when we said that we had to haul all this luggage up 4 flights of stairs.  Instead of dropping us off at the curb, he was going to help us.  See, we knew that the elevator was being repaired when we rented the apartment, in fact we got a small price break for the inconvenience.   But yet, we packed like this – what in the world were we thinking?

  • A trip to WeiZhou Island A trip to WeiZhou Island

    • From: j123456
    • Description:
      Although it looked like a cloudy day today in BeiHai city, the weather got better after we had arrived at Weizhou Island by water. One hour later, we reached the destination. We spent three days and three nights there. At about 5 clock in the afternoon on the twenty second of November, we landed on the island and at 5 pm on the 25th, we left. In the three days on the island, we sleep till waking up each day, sometimes stroll around nice scenic spots, are in a daze for a little bit, walk for a while, have a bike ride, pick up shell, and walk the dog. What is important is that we had fresh seafood to eat. What a leisurely and comfortable vacation. 
          About the accommodation on the island, it seems that we didn’t have many choices but Youth Hostel called ZhuZai Ba is our only choice and since we all know about hostels, we then made the decision to stay. Spending a night at a fisherman’s family was never considered, because we know nothing about its environment and something like that. We contacted with the boss there on the Internet to reserve a room, but since we were not sure on which date we would land on the island, we just made an oral contract with him. Anyway, “since it’s in a dull season, there are rooms anytime” the boss said. Having bought sea passage tickets, we started out.
          The ship having arrived at the dock, we met up with the rider of the tricycle and got on. After a while, we began officially landing on the island.
          After that, it’s when the sun goes down. Putting down our luggage in the hostel, we rushed out. Across a road, it’s a beach and we saw the sunset on the WeiZhou Island.
          Afterwards, dinner had been reserved in advance, before we had dinner together. The younger sister of the boss AHong is charge of cooking meal for us. She went to the market , bought some seafood like fish and crab and cooked for us. Her cooking skill was so good, with the GuangDong style, that we liked it very much and ate all. Since she has a good cooking skill, we decided to stay here for the rest of the days.
      in the morning of the following day, we had steamed bun with soya-bean milk and went to the market to buy some seafood. After that, we give it to AHong to cook it for us. For each meal, it’s different . crab is stemmed or sometimes fried with yolk or green onion. For fish, it’s stemmed sometimes and some other time braised in soy sauce. Shell is stemmed or sometimes fried. If we go out to have a fun and are late for buying food, we can give her a call to ask her to do it for us. At night, we reserved a seafood barbecue as our night snack and it’s so delicious.
          Moreover, There are about ten thousand residents living on the WeiZhou Island with one fifth of believers, where there are two churches, the catholic church and the chapel of Our Lady. Church is the symbol of missionaries.
      The chapel of Our Lady of France is a small typical church with the gothic style of Europe, with three floors of a square bell tower in front engraved with the three words Chapel of Our Lady, and an oblong house of god and two floors of a small building behind the tower. And perhaps because of the small-sized church located at a remote place, few people go there.
          The symbolic church on the island is the catholic church, which is already a scenic spot where there were so many people inside without tranquility and holy, and a few of buses parking by there. Finally we met up with our team group, and took some photos and left before the next group of people came.
           The church with a hundred years history, a gothic architecture in the renaissance of France was built with the corallites on the island, composed of the church, Men and women monastery, hospital, priest building, and mother and baby room.
          The Volcano Park is an important scenic spot on the island where there is a lighthouse guiding the way of the fishing-boat. Standing under the lighthouse, we can see the whole view of the South Bay.
         The Crocodile Mountain Park is where marine abrasion and volcanic lava often happen. Walking along the sea, we can see the pelelith. On that morning, the weather was bad, very cloudy. I ran into a group of children who was sketching a beautiful view.
         Located in the east, The Sesame Beach is also called the Colorful Beach, where it’s optimum to watch the sunrise. It got famous because of its white and black sand. And we can also catch some crabs in the evening.
         It’s really an unforgettable experience.
