We were really looking forward for the Great Wall! since kids we always saw it in the documentaries about China! our expectations where high and we were not disappointed in anyway! A big thank you to Beth our Cisco colleague that took us to one of the nicest part of the Great Wall! :)

As a bonus! it was a beautiful sunny day,

We had to jump!!!! on the Great Wall :))

During our walk we met this group of ladies that used to work in the army and now are retired and travel all over China singing :)

In this section of the Great Wall there is several parts that are in ruin,

Our jumping sessions, 

Just amazing!

The surroundings are just beautiful as well! we were there in October so the leaves where changing color :) 

We leave you with the lady's singing! Disclaimer: We don´t know what are they singing about :P

Impressive Beijing and the Forbidden City

As soon as we landed in Beijing we were blown away! we had no idea how developed China was. Every thing is huge and majestic! Without knowing we booked a place near one of the many shopping districts in Beijing and we could not believe our eyes when we saw their malls. They are humongous! with every single brand you can image! some of which don´t even have shops in Europe... but they do have them here.... guess why... the Chinese middle and higher class have an impressive purchasing power! 

We never saw so many Apple shops as in Beijing and Shanghai! 

The place we were staying the first night in Beijing was quite hidden! Good we had the address in Chinese :P but it was quite nice, is what they call a Hutong,

The Forbidden City, what can we saw... is HUGE! and impressive,

There was an impressive queue of people to enter but it was mainly Chinese tourists. We didn´t see any western. So October is quite a good month to visit this area :) the weather was pretty ok! right now is freaking cold in Beijing :P

There is so many beautiful details in each one of the buildings :P good I have 8gb of memory in this camera!

Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!!!

We would like to wish to everyone that has been following our adventure a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!

We have been truly blessed to meet so many nice people during our trip! we wish you all the best for this new year!

Kamsahamnida South Korea, Thank you South Korea!

Thank you South Korea! We had 10 wonderful days in this amazing country! We are so impressed how they have come from almost nothing after the war and they have achieved so much! The Korean are super friendly! the food is simply amazing! KIMCHI rules!!! 

One thing that cannot be missed in South Korea! is doing a temple stay! It was just amazing!


What we are really missing already is the amazing Korean foodddddd,

the amazing Korean BBQ!

Our favorite snacks! the rice triangles with crunchy seaweed!!

and the instant noddles :)

And of course we could not forget the best food we had so far in this trip!!! PUMPKIN DUCKK

We really enjoy the Korean culture of sharing the food! its really nice, just to order a couple of dishes and everyone shares :) much better then in Europe.. one dish per person and if yours sucks! you are stuck with it :P

South Korea is probably the most well connected country we have been at! there is a wireless network everywhere! bus, metro, tour bus you name it! 

Korea is all about being connected! :) One thing we didn´t metion so far is that they their Pop music is HUGEEEEEEEEE in Asia.. meaning we have been hearing this song in China, Hong Kong, Japan everyoneeeeee they know ittttt!! they might make it to Europe who knows! right now is the most popular ring tone in Asia.... with no more delay here they are!!! The WonderGirls with Nobody:

hang on until minute 2:11 when it starts :))

The chorus kind of get stick in your mindddd specially when everyone has it as ring toneeeeee!!!

"I want nobody,nobody but you.
I want nobody,nobody but you.
How can I be with another,
I don't want any other

I want nobody

The Trick Eye Museum in Seoul!
