I've been browsing a friend couple's website with their travelling throughout Europe and China. They went to many different cities the past few years and posted their diaries and many beautiful pictures on their website. It makes me wanting to go to China some day and travel like them and experience the different faces of Chinese cities. Not just the tourist spots like Great Wall and Tienanmen Square, but go to the small cities around China and eat and travel to different spots where famous Chinese people left their marks.
I think in general I enjoy travelling. I enjoy more now than a few years back because last year I had a lot of chances to travel to different cities in the US and Canada because of business. Whenever I am in a new city, I enjoy its unique culture and food and I love to take many pictures. I like to venture out from the hotel and check out the cool places around town, although sometimes i would be quite tired after a day of work at customer's. It really gives me a different perspectives in seeing things. I love experience different cultures and get the good things out from these cultures. It broadens my perspective. And in a way, it makes me less "siu hei" (ignorant) and be able to see things in many ways. Also I can appreciate the diverse creations of God. Often I will realize "hey there are people so different from me!", or "this is a great way to do things". I think it makes me a better person.
I've never thought travelling to China can be so fun until I checked out my friend's site. I used to think travelling to China is an uncool thing. Mainly because the places are dirty, not much to buy, so many people etc. After travelling to different US cities, Chinese cities suddenly sound so much "homey". Imagine going to a place with Chinese food! Chinese people! Chinese words! Am I having reverse cultural shock?
