Amazing!
Thank you so much for taking me with you on your amazing journey through China. You have truly inspired me for a trip I'm hoping to take there in a few years' time. I hope you're both now resting up well after what seemed to be an epic journey. I look forward to reading about your future travels 😀

Thank You
Thanks so much Alex and glad that we have inspired you as well, feel free to email me if you want any further information. We are currently looking at several places for next year but high on the list at the moment is Madagascar in the Autumn to see the wildlife mainly. Regards Sheila

Giant Pandas!
What adorable animals, and what lovely photos of them you have taken! I enjoyed reading about your trip to Chengdu and Chongqing. I probably would not have enjoyed the throngs and the rain either... I bet you were indeed looking forward to your river cruise from there 😊

Giant Pandas
Thanks Alex - The pandas were a real treat but the rain was not - but once we upgraded on the boat we soon dried out ... ... ... with a glass of wine to help ... ... Regards Sheila

Wonderful
Wonderful! This seems like rural China at its best! I'm glad you were able to get off the beaten tourist track here, and see some traditional authentic villages. I'm sorry to read of Paul's two illness occasions, not nice when you're travelling. I hope they didn't last long. Your travel "memory wall" at home sounds wonderful, it must be full of beautiful souvenirs and memories 😊

Love the terraces

I have travelled a bit in China
I have over the years had the opportunity to travel several times in China. Still I have not even scratched the surface of all things worth visiting there. I enjoy reading your blog entries as I get to read about places I have not visited. /Ake

I love natural settings like this. Always good watching the locals.

Such a cutie
She was adorable and really enjoying her food - I still cannot use those chopsticks though not through lack of trying ... ...

Rice Terraces
How beautiful! I really want to see this landscape one day. I'm glad your guide saved your terrace experience with the drive to the higher village and trek down... I'll have to try and remember that trick :)

Longji Rice Terrace
I think this will be remembered as one of our favourite hikes and places to visit for a long time. Thanks for your comments and put it on your bucket list. Regards Sheila

Minority groups
This part of China is really fascinating! Thank you for the descriptions of all the minority groups. I hadn't heard of most of them. I'm not sure how I would cope with the 'double dipping' of chopsticks in the communal dishes :/ But I suppose if that's how the locals eat...there's not much to be done about it. Hope Paul's bug didn't hang around too long. Cheers, Ren

Minority Groups
Thanks Ren for your comments - Paul cannot seem to shake this bug away but is feeling much better apart from a nasty cough. Just love this area of China and wish we could have had more time here. Regards Sheila
