📍 Former Residence of Hu Xueyan - The mix between traditional chinese architecture and late 19th century european one, with the blue glass windows (imported from France) and the incredible chinese garden makes this place one of the absolute must see attractions in Hangzhou.

No matter when and where you go, you always find great view at Jinshanling Great Wall!
Hello from our hiatus 👋
We’ve been active on Stories but it’s been radio silence on the Posts front for us. Why, you might ask? Well, other than the fact that we truly loved our time in China and accessing the gram has been notoriously difficult from this country, we’ve had ongoing issues with this wonderful platform. We’ve been unable to like or comment, we’ve been constantly changing our password and, worst of all, our reach has been limited. 🤐
While numbers aren’t important to us, it was sad to see our last post reach almost none of our followers. Yup, very few people actually saw it and our favourite hashtags garnered us almost no views.
We took a few weeks to regroup and just enjoy ourselves at incredible sights like the Forbidden City, and the Great Wall, and the Terracotta Army. And we’ve decided we’re going to post our photos regardless of whether Instagram deems them feed-worthy or not! 🤷 -
So, here are a few photos from the Forbidden City in Beijing, where we started our China leg. Right now we’re writing this from the airport, as we finish up our month in this incredible country. A place imprinted on our eyeballs and firmly set in our hearts… ❤️️ ❤️️ ❤️️ -
📷Photo notes: How, you might ask, is it possible to get these ‘solo shots’ when we shared our time at the Forbidden City with 76, 000 other tourists? We legged it! We got there early (that’s obvious), we queued near the front and once the gates opened, we rushed down the side passages to get ahead of the crowds. We’ve put more info in our Beijing itinerary, live on the blog now (link in bio!)
