I am back from my trip all around china after 15 tiring but very exciting days, 7 flights, 3 train trips and uncountable kilometers of walking.
At one of the airports, some days ago, we begun talking with a group of Germans about our experiences of china and we all agreed the first thing that comes to mind to characterize it is “different”. Everything was different and surreal, especially to me as it was my first trip outside Europe. Words can’t really describe it accurately and as I realized while I was there, photos (my photos at least) can’t capture the atmosphere, mainly because of the scale of everything and certainly because of the sound and smell being such strong elements.
I did a quick selection out of hundreds of pictures to post two of each of the cities we visited.
Hope you got the right feeling from the photos, there are many more to come!
