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!

2015 Chinese New Year Parade Chinatown NYC with the Sony A7R
Yesterday was the annual Chinese New Year parade in Chinatown in New York City, so we decided to grab Miles and head over to check it out! Even though Chinese New Year itself fell earlier in the week, the parades are on the weekend of course and Sunday was the 2015 parade date. Luckily the weather up here in New York totally cooperated after a little snow and freezing rain on Saturday when the Flushing CNY parade was happening, the Sunday festivities in NYC's Chinatown saw (relatively) warm temperatures in the 40s - a perfect weekend day in the city! I had my trusty Sony A7R with me, and our little spot we staked out towards the end of the ro ...

2013 Travel Photography Year in Review
In the attempt to write some new content on the blog while I'm in the middle of editing a million weddings - here are some travel photos from 2013!

In July Betty and I traveled to Istanbul, Turkey so that she could attend a professional conference. In Turkey we stayed after the conference for a few days and traveled to central Turkey to see the Cappad ...
