With mountains that jut out of the water, this world heritage listed area is incredible.

Life on the water for kids is tough, no sports fields to kick a footy around. Life_on_the_water

Fishing out at almost worlds end, where the mist and water blend to one.

Sailing into Ha Long Bay was an experience you remember with the mountains jutting out of the water and the eerie feeling with the fog making everything jump out at you at the last minut.

China Shanghai and Beijing

China

China was another amazing place, with my first visit and a quiet a number of other firsts.

First time in Shanghai, Beijing, on the great wall of china, on a bullet train traveling over 300km/h, eating in a vegan restaurant, eating a meal of just duck necks among other things.

With some incredible food, and stark contrasts between modern and old china.

This place is well worth a visit but as a tourist there are people constantly trying to scam you. so beware.

The Chinese bullet train was a great way to get between Shanghai and Beijing. It takes a little longer than the plane, but you get to see so much more, it is about a 5 1/2 hour journey that is very comfortable and quiet.
