The Oasis. I was there for about half an hour, then thought, I should probably get going. Going up was one of the most physically gruelling hikes I have ever done. It took my 1.5 hours to descend and 3.5 to get back up. I was exhausted, slowly putting one foot in front of the other with my head down to not look at the daunting mountain in front of me. Twice while walking I almost fell off the cliff as a train of pack mules charged down the trail without a care in the world. First time in 7 months that I got a sunburn and certainly don’t miss the feeling.

This is my travel blog and writing portfolio covering my life in China and my trips around the world, including the food, experiences, people, culture, history, and architecture. Living in Beijing has been an adventure, so here's some insight into one of the world's biggest cities.
