My Travels in China

This is a collection of posts of my experiences traveling in China. Plus a little explanation here and there.

China A to Z

China A to Z is a series of posts I wrote in 2018 to pull together my impressions of China and give an overview that might be helpful to people planning to travel there.

The subtitle for this tale is “hard sleeper trip to Mount Tai”. A trip to a destination important to Chinese people that is not on the typical “21 days in China” tour offered by so many tour companies. As my son said (not  unhappily) it was more of a story than a tourist visit to a site of importance. A story that includes many of the experiences that happen when you travel in China.

Mount Tai, is also called Tai Shan and also Mount Taishan. Although  “shan” means mountain so Mount Taishan is redundant. One reason even such venerable resources as the UNESCO World Heritage Site use this is that there is more than one Taishan in China (if you decide to go make sure that you make your arrangements for Taishan in the Shandong Province!)

The second weekend we went on a trip to Yishan National Park southwest of Weifang (in some references they say it is the southwestern most part of Weifang and in others they talk about Linqu county.

Up on my feet, down on my seat

Weifang: a Regular Chinese City

This spring when I visited James had to work all but one day so I mostly explored on my own. He told me that a few of his co-workers were concerned about my lack of supervision. I told him he should tell them that he thinks mothers should be free-range. Everything I saw and did this trip was within Weifang. But that is  pretty big area, I think it is larger than the county I live in, and it includes several smaller towns and cities as well as some “development zones”. The following are posts about what I saw in Weifang.

The Famous Three Gorges

The following are posts about traveling through the Three Gorges on Yangtze River Cruises (I have done the trip twice: once traveling upstream in the fall and once traveling downstream in the spring).
