The travel diaries: China - time to get sentimental

Guess what? The following photos portrait my return to the place I call home: after seventeen years I got to set foot in Macau!!
The journey was long and tiring. First a long taxi ride, then a long train ride, and then another train, another taxi and finally.... I could smell the familiar scent of the water and jetfoil fuel... I was almost home! ❤️
How to get there?

Beer, money and a first class seat. Can you even tell I was excited?

First meal back home! Yummyyyy ❤️ And then we went clubbing because "there ain't no rest for the wicked".

After clubbing, what do you do? Sightseeing. Enjoy the views without the crowds.

Sunrise at Forte da Guia.

Followed by perfect shots at the Ruins of St. Paul.

Time to sleep a little, recover some energies and.... FOOD!!!

My level of excitement was beyond the charts, I forgot to take pictures of the rest of the food. Ups.

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.

After reaching the hole in hill and the views are already breathtaking.

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 an…
