The Great Wall of China- 3 spectacular hiking spots

There’s an old Chinese Proverb that describes the Great Wall so perfectly. “Only those that have travelled the road know where the holes are deep”.

5 Things I Wish I’d Known Before Packing Up and Leaving Home

•••
Back in 2012 when I packed my bags and left my home town, I never imagined I’d still be on the road 6 years later. That was always the ultimate goal, but I’ve forever been a dreamer and I knew it would take some working towards.
