Hello my darlings!
As you may know I recently visited Beijing, China. I travelled solo from Stockholm, Sweden, on a nine hour flight. And it was totally worth it!
I am going to post several posts about this trip, but overall I want to share that Beijing is one big and diverse city, and if you have the opportunity, you should definitely go!
I spent one week in China with my Swedish friend Louise who lives and works in Beijing city. I stayed at her flat and did solo day trips while she was at work and during the evenings and weekend we went on adventures together. It definitely helps to have a “local” by your side if you visit somewhere you never have been before.
I’m overwhelmed with how different China was from my expectations of the country.. it’s super well developed, high tech and clean! Maybe I didn’t reflect much before I went that Beijing is in fact a big city that never sleeps.
Check out my IG for more Beijing photos. Right now I’m doing a Beijing Doors Mini Series. Are you also intrigued by old doors, their history and who lives behind them now?
