So… 2017 has just started. Let’s seize this moment for a short reflection of 2016.
I would like to use this opportunity to give my best wishes for a joyful New Year. I hope it will be your year in every positive way with lots of adventures.
With that emphasised, let’s move on. I’m in my planning phase on where to travel this year. Some places are scheduled and decided. But I would love to hear where you have been in the last year. This leads to the final question from my side:
What was your most memorable trip in 2016?
This question is followed by a small why? This is just to clarify in a few lines, why this was your memorable trip. Let me hear from you in the comment section of this post.
From my side, a few to highlight in 2016 was China (again & several places), Qatar (In Doha), France (in Paris) & Spain (Mallorca). I have highlighted these because they were all amazing and really different in visiting styles (or vacations style if you like ). Doha & Paris was really short trips but gave me an insight to what they had to offer and both places has plenty. I have been in Paris a couple of times, though, I never seem to get tired of it. It was my first time in Mallorca for a more relaxing trip and it was perfect for that. Mallorca also has also potential to be an active vacation, with great opportunities for biking and other activities. Clearly an island with lots to offer plus warmer weather than Copenhagen due to wintertime
Last but definitely not least, I went to China again and this was my really memorable and I would consider this as my most memorable trip of 2016. It was both to visit friends and to see more of its attractions, culture and beautiful sceneries. Even though I have been there a couple of times, there’s still plenty to see. This time I went to Chengdu, Hong Kong, Macau & Shanghai (Where I have been every single time).
A memorable moment was indeed to experience real living Giant Pandas in the rescue centre in Chengdu. To see these mystical and beautiful animals in their controlled, but natural habitat was truly amazing. It was also my first time in Hong Kong and what a city. From the view of Victoria Peak, the vibrant atmosphere in the city to a short trip to Lamma Island, which is just one of the many small islands in Hong Kong. Hong Kong is simply stunning and there’s so much to see and explore.
One more thing, I have uploaded some new photos in the free download section. Just remember all the good intention and karma purpose
