Arrived in Beijing

On May 24th 2017, I left the UK to China for a month’s holiday. This was my first trip to China, the first time I had left the UK in 16 years and the furthest I have travelled.


I landed safely in Beijing – huge, hot, hectic city!

Beijing Airport is huge too. Sharon told me it’s the largest in the country, and second largest in the world. I was glad that she came to meet me and took me to the hotel…

Or, to be precise, her driver took us to the hotel!

We passed a few landmarks on the way of course – but I couldn’t get good photos from the car.
This is the famous “bird’s nest” Olympic Stadium. I would get a closer view of this later.

I am writing from the 16th floor of an air-conditioned luxurious hotel, overlooking the University.


To the left (West) in the haze is 香山 (xiāng shān) “Fragrance Hill/Mountain”.

  1. Howdy this is somewhat of off topic but I was wondering if blogs use WYSIWYG editors or if you have to manually code with HTML.
    I’m starting a blog soon but have no coding expertise so I
    wanted to get guidance from someone with experience.

    1. WordPress has a built-in editor, which is more-or-less WYSIWYG – but how it actually displays is dependent on the theme and the device on which the site is being viewed.
