This is the first post of a series of pictures from a trip to China in June 2013.
Yesterday night I was up late working on different projects. Summing up things from the last year, preparing for the new to come. As soon as I woke up today I could feel a tickling sensation. Something starting from deep within my stomach and echoing out into the rest of my body: happiness. It seems like the weeks of nervousness and unwillingness to leave is over and now, now it’s time! I am looking forward to the trip again!
To celebrate this I think it is time to show you some good ol’ pics. Please hang on.
After one year in Chinaland I moved back to Sweden again and started university. It was a tough first year and I was constantly thinking about returning to China. So when the summer came I packed my bags and went. The first two weeks I was travelling with some Swedish friends, and afterwards I went north and returned to my previous home: Wuhan.
The trip became a wonderful vacation, reunion with some old friends but also a travel-detox. When I returned to Sweden life went back to normal but now with a new peace.
We started out from Linköping a beautiful morning. It was 5 am and the air was crystal clear. The team consisted of two dads, to daughters and one Susanna. As we were three generations traveling together we were often mistaken for being a family.
We arrived to Kunming in the evening and received a very warm welcome. Kunming is located in the south-west of China. It is a mountain filled province famous for the good weather and unique nature. As we were hungry after the trip we soon went to eat at our friends favorite place.
Every part of China have their own cuisine. In Kunming we ate a lot of fresh veggies, deep-fried kidney beans and a big fried potato cake almost similar to the Swiss delicacy Rösti. The taste was good and it was not spicy.
To be continued.
