Norway & Sweden

I am feeling like I actually have muscles at the moment after returning from a trip to Sweden. It was a canoeing holiday which was amazing. The country is soo beautiful so many lakes and a lot of greenery and the trip was amazing but it was hard work and tiring.

Beijing Adventure!!

I have just arrived back from an amazing holiday in Beijing! The trip was really exciting and we jam packed it full of sight seeing. The cutest of which was definitely seeing the giant pandas at the Beijing zoo such lovely (yet lazy) animals. This one was doing a very impressive rug impersonation!

While we were their we went to visit a lot of different temples but my favourite of these was definitely the Lama temple. The building were beautiful and full of a huge variety of Buddhist statues including the worlds largest sandalwood Buddha! The best thing about the Lama temple was definitely the people and the atmosphere everyone was praying and burning big bundles of incense, totally amazing place.

The most exciting part of the trip was going out of the city to see the great wall of china, i was amazed by the views and for how far you could see the wall stretching out into the distance. We went to the part of the wall in Mutianyu which isn't quiet as crowded as other parts and has the added benefit of having a cable car up to the wall and a toboggan slide to get you back down... brilliant!!!
