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.

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.

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 ...
