I’ve got an affinity for China.
Many of my friends asked me, “Why China?” They feel contempt for the place and people. They’ve never been there and vowed that they won’t step into the country. Some of them are Chinese themselves.
I never believed in listening to what others egged you on. Listen to your heart, trust your gut feeling. Everyone travels differently, with different preference, objectives, style, pace, budget. Your experience is uniquely yours, and during the journey, your compadres’ too.
This March, I went to Lijiang, Yunnan. It was a place I’ve wanted to visit a few years back. Yunnan, claimed to be a beautiful place with favourable weather “四季如春”, it’s like Spring all year round. My plan was to visit Lijiang, Dali and Kunming in 15 days. However, plans changed. I stayed in Lijiang for the two weeks (Apart from the short trips I made from there). I love impromptu plans.6 Yays!
