The travel diaries: China - Yangshuo day 3
A day filled with adventure. At least that's how it felt and how it feels like as I view the photographs.
In the morning, we took a loooooooooong hike up Moon Hill. It was challenging to me but after talking to an old lady (nearly 90 years old) carrying a basket full of bottles of water to sell at the top and learning she did the hike more than once a day, I decided to step up my game.
See the hole in the middle? That's where the "official" trail ends. But if you seek thrills and adventure, go beyond the "no trespassing" sign and be prepared for the best views of the area.
Reached the top and, once more, feeling like I'm in Middle Earth and part of a Tolkien adventure.
I made him take so many pictures, poor guy!
But I also took nice photographs of him.
China, you are beautiful! ❤️
Moon Hill, thanks for the hike! Can't wait to do another one!!
Time for a shower and quick lunch, noodles and passion fruit juice.
Care to guess where we went after?
An artisan working on a wood panel.
A woman from the local minority, the Yáo, working on traditional fabrics and clothes.
Rice Terraces! Finally visiting another of China's gems.
Ping'an village, Lóngjǐ Rice Terraces 💚
One of my favourite pictures of myself, taken at such a dazzling location.
Finding a White Chocolate Magnum in the rice terraces was a funny reminder of the western world.
I'll call this "Gazing at the distance".
Even with the rain and dark clouds, the whole setting looked magical and mysterious.
We take the best silly pictures 💚 #friendshipgoals
After this it's time to go home.... And I don't mean Lisbon...
