Faces of Shanghai

Faces of Shanghai

My favourite photos are the ones where you got to make a connection with the place or person. While walking through a park here in Shanghai I was surprised at how many people were willing to let me take their photo once I asked. My favourite group of photos from the day is of the park gardner. Eventhough we could not understand each other he smiled and allowed me to take his photo. After taking his photo he came and asked me to please take a photo of him and his friend.

 Peace begins with a smile. Smile is a simple act, but sometimes takes a lot of effort. A smile can cause boundaries to melt, hearts to warm up, and distances to reduce. (Mother Teresa)

I am addicted to travelling and have been exploring the world for nearly two decades. Here I share my travel stories and pictures so that you can share in some of the amazing experiences I have along the way. When you travel you experience the culture and get to know the people of a country. Once you step out of your comfortzone you get to know the real country and experience it in a different way than ordinary tourists. My camera usually accompanies me everywhere I go so you can "see" and read about my journeys.

  1. I hadn’t realised that you have actually moved to Shangai! Wow! It looks as though you are enjoying it, what job did you end up getting? I would be put off by all the people there, but you look in your element 🙂

    1. Hallo there Jude. Yes, I have moved to Shanghai, teaching middle school English. The city is fabulous as long as you avoid all the crowded areas. I live in one of the quieter suburbs of Shanghai and just make sure I stay out of the city center on any public holidays. The backsteeets and alleys and parks are so much better to explore anyway- a true taste of life in China!! Hope you have a great week!!
