Summer Vacation | China Trip 2015 Day 7 | Wuyi Rafting & Hiking Heaven-Traveling Peak

China Travel

Day 7 of our China adventure kept us in the Wuyi mountains of Fujian province, this time starting off with some rafting in the morning before things got too hot and then MORE hiking after lunch! We braved “Heaven-Traveling Peak” which is touted as the No. 1 scenic spot in Wuyi, beautiful view – way too many steps to climb!

Our “captain” pulled over and gave us some shore time to explore a little outcropping – but I think it was more for them to have a smoke break, lol!

Miles got to stand up on the front of the boat for a photo with the famous mountain peak in the background.

Reminded us of Horseshoe Bend in the American West! It’s almost like the Colorado River… almost…

About to make that trek up those stairs behind us to the green spot on the veeeery top!

Those tiny stairs so far away are what we just climbed up, the little pavilion is where we took the first set of pictures from before these.

When we were done we swung by “A Thread of Sky” a super narrow canyon…

Our First Trip Together
It is a make-up post for our first trip ever together. The saying is that if a couple can get along well in a trip, then they can get along well in their marriage. So we were nervous, but of course, we got along super well. Woman is always the one deciding the direction, so I decided going to Savannah, GA for a short road trip.  I always saw introduction in TV and was intrigued to see this old town. On the way to Savannah, we also stopped by St. Augustine, FL, a beautiful harbor city by Florida east coast.

Behind the Scenes Vlog #3 | Adiba & Vishal’s Fusion Indian Wedding at Aqua Turf Club – Plantsville, Connecticut
Week #3 in a row means Vlog #3 in a row! This time I get to stay semi-close to home as I headed up to Plantsville, Connecticut for Adiba & Vishal's fusion Indian wedding at the Aqua Turf Club! Surprisingly, I think this was my first time up in Connecticut and the drive from Long Island wasn't too bad at all. Well, during rush hour the Waze/Google times were pretty frightening but on the weekend, other than a little traffic through the Bronx and near Stamford, it was smooth driving. This was an amazing wedding at a great venue, I had a ton of fun working with Eileen Smith Events for the planning, Sonia C for hair and makeup, and Mango Tree ...

Continuing the last blog post, which was a blitz through part of Europe's Schengen Area, landing in Oslo and taking the train down to Copenhagen. After jumping on a flight from Copenhagen, I was off to Paris for a few days! Luckily, the gloomy weather in Northeastern Europe gave way to sunny skies in France, which made a pleasant couple of days in Paris, though for the photos I would have preferred a few clouds for those dramatic skies. I stayed in a hostel in Paris, which is always fun, since I was solo traveling with just my backpack I didn't need all of the comforts of a proper hotel without Betty or Miles with me. Two days totally free in ...
