Summer Vacation | China Trip 2015 Day 12 | Jingan Temple & The Bund Shanghai

China Travel

Day 12 was our second day in Shanghai for our China Vacation 2015, and we explored some of the more touristy things that the city has to offer, but of course I did go back to The Bund in the evening to check out more of the famous skyline views! Another day putting the Sony A7ii to the test as a travel camera!

The famous singles market in Shanghai! Parents come here to meet other parents and try to play matchhmaker. On the front of the umbrellas are their kid’s qualifications :)

Jumping on the Big Bus Shanghai I took the option to go to the top of the Jing Mao building where I attempted to catch a sunset. With the fog and smog today I didn’t really see the sun and the view was rather cloudy, but it still was an amazing view!

California Road Trip
We had our California road trip in September 2009. It was first time for both of us really to see California. We flew to San Fransisco, where we spent two days, and then rent a car driving toward south. We drove by Highway 1 through Monterey, Ventura, LA, and then finally San Diego. Both of us fell in love with Northern California. We got lucky in San Fransisco because the weather was perfect, which is rare for SFO. We rode bike across The Golden Gate Bridge, went to China Town, and then took a bus tour around the whole city, like any tourist. We both love the strong atmosphere of hippie culture of the city. We went to the famous Fishmen's W ...
