This morning I watched over three journey videos done by Jamie Logan. He did well for the Luca in Italy. I can not appreciate very well with the Shanghai and Ha Long Bay one. Maybe as an Asian, I am from Shanghai, I feel the commercial markets in Yuyuan does not show any characters of Shanghai people. I think as well, the indepth Asian lifestyle shall be more discovered. I alway have a fancy on Vietnam as well, the water life, the cooking, the “you can not beat” attitude in their ways of doing things.
Have said that, one of my my favorite chef Luke did a trip up the Ha Long Bay to neibouring countries, which is vibrant and vivid to express the feel and taste of Asia. Kelie Wang did a cooking program in the lanes of Shanghai, which was interesting as well. I highly recommend you guys to watch these two programs.
Travel is a thing to experience life. It is all about people and people. When we travel, we will and would meet some interesting people on the road or someone just sat beside you. This is the miracle, an amazing thing to make your day.
Said that, I went to Wuyi Mountain, in the train, I met people who were visiting friends in another stop. They would talk about their college matters…People heading for Shenyang were actually going to the great grass plateau of north China. It was about the dream they had and what they were doing now, which connects you to what you think about China.
I avoided the traffic in the north gate of the Wuyi mountain, the track was much more beautiful to wander along than the quick trail bus. The tea plantation valley was much more enjoyful without crowded travelers, which smelt better too.
It meant you can creat a poetic moment by the way you choose. That is the attraction of adventure as well.
