Summer Vacation | China Trip 2015 Days 10 & 11 | Wuyi University & Train & Shanghai

China Travel

Days 10 and 11 of our Summer vacation to China sort of blended together with one day being a travel day, so they’re blended together with this vacation photos blog post! As we were exploring parts of Fujian and Wuyi we went to visit Wuyi University which has a gorgeous and large campus out in the countryside of Wuyishan. After spending the morning/afternoon around the university and visiting Betty’s family they dropped us off at the Wuyi rail station where we took the evening train over to Shanghai. Here are some of the sights from Wuyi University and Shanghai!

Had Betty stand in for scale to just how big some of these buildings at Wuyi University are.

Since it was Summer break for the University the campus was mostly empty other than a few international students.

The sports arena at Wuyi, really huge! I can’t imagine what the campus is like full of students during the school year.

I think this was just a random station in between Wuyi and Shanghai that I got out to take photos of during a stop to stretch my legs.

Of course we had to stop at the park/carnival thing that is in the center of Shanghai for the kids to give Miles a break from the sightseeing. He really loved this ride which lets kids drive construction equipment.

Street night market scenes outside of the main commercial strip. These were sprinkled here and there throughout the city with locals hanging out and grabbing a bite to eat after work with street food.

Of course I had to walk to the Bund to take photos of the riverside at night!

Summer Vacation | China Trip Day 13 | The Bund Shanghai
The final day of these China Vacation blog posts! I can finally get back to weddings so that you don't have to scroll so far in the blog to see actual New York and Atlanta Indian weddings :). Day 13 was our final day before heading home to New York from Shanghai, and we wanted to take Miles to the Bund since I had pretty much gone by myself each time and it was always at night when Miles should be sleeping. Crowds were still there during the day, and the couples taking wedding photos were still there of course! Family photo with a self timer on the Sony A7ii using one of the light poles as a tripod stand :) Daytime long ...

Summer Vacation | China Trip 2015 Day 4 | Min Tai + Jimei
This is another quick Vacation post here on the ol' blog, a break from all the Indian weddings and engagements and traveling back and forth from New York to Atlanta! Day 4 of our vacation we headed to the outskirts of Xiamen to find Min Tai, an old ancient town that was turned into a tourist destination and then fell into misuse. Long gone are the buses of tourists to see some of "old China" but the locals are still hanging out on the streets of Min Tai, and the temple itself is still functioning of course. Interesting place to visit, not sure it would make my "Top 10 Sights of Xiamen" but interesting nonetheless! After spending the morning a ...

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 ...
