22-02-2016 – Olympic Park Beijing

I went to the Olympic Park and visit the “Bird Nest”. This was the stadium where the opening of the Olympics in 2008 started. Its a impressive building, from the outside but also from the inside. Its huge, but feels small. I walked around and went also to the top to see the whole area. It was amazing to stand there, ok it’s not the premiere feeling of a opening, but still… We saw it on TV, we saw the firework and now im standing there.

22-02-2016 – Lama Temple and Temple of Heaven

After my Olympic Park visit i went too 2 temples: Lama Temple and Temple of heaven. Both very crowded with people. And seems i was the only white guy around there. The temples where colored so nice, and everywhere people pray, and give money to the buddha. When i was in temple of heaven 2 times people want on a photo with me, so i was the only white guy there, and a new attraction was born…

21-02-2016 – Great Wall China

Today i went to Great Wall of China. This is the longest wall ever made by humans. Total length around 10.000km.It was a long journey to get there by bus. I was happy that i did a excursion otherwise i wasn’t able to find it my own and public transport. At this period of the year it was the best. Less people around so have some nice images created. After we went back in the hotel i had a dinner with a couple from Norway. Was a nice conversation and in meanwhile we ordered some delicious food in the upper floor of a shopping mall!

21-02-2016 – Shanghai to Beijing

This morning went to Shanghai Railway Station to take the High-Speed train to Beijing. The ride was perfect. I bought a 1st class ticket and had almost my own cabin haha. The train will stop several times between Shanghai and Beijing and the whole journey took 7 hours. I shoot some images of the locations and now you have a little impression what i saw the whole day.

A cup of coffee cost 2,- euro, so thats normal. After u arrived at Beijing South a bought a metro card. When you know the metro system in other big cities, then every metro in every city is easy. Sometimes you have to ask something. There was a short part of the route with a old part of metro. So no signs, no map, nothing. I had to ask for it.

After i arrive at my hotel i booked my excursion to Great wall, costs 39,- euro. Pickup from hotel to Great wall, a guide, and when i arrive at Great Wall i will use a cablecar to get higher in te mountains. But you will see the images later.

Now below you can see some images i took in the train. Ohh im so happy with my Nikon 24-70mm f2.8. The train had a speed of 305km/hour. And all my images are sharp 😀

05-02-2016 – Flight and Dinner Clarke Quay

Hi There all,

The flight was good. Fly with KLM and thats always  good company to fly with. Cabin crew was nice, and that had change the whole interiors and stuff to use based on “Delfts blauw”. At some delay at immigration long line of waiting people who want go into Singapore. At the flight i met a couple, they stay 2 weeks because their son had moved to Singapore to take a change to work and live here.

After i checked in at my Hotel, i did a shower and went to Clarke Quay. Met a friend there and have a dinner. Met him 2 years ago in Singapore as well. Was so nice to see him again!. Clarke Quay is a hotspot for tourists. Lots of restaurants, bars, entertainment user 1 big roof. It was normal streets but they build a roof on top so with rain you won’t get wet.

At the end i went back to my hotel, and my first bad experience was started. My neighbours make so may noise i can’t sleep. Went to the service desk and explain my problem. I have to come back tomorrow before 12:00 so they will change my room to a more quiet floor.

Here you have a 360 degrees photo of Clarke Quay:

StopAidsNow

Yes, something else then travel, but i explain why.

I promised 2 years ago to a boy who died about aids. This teddybear lost a his friend because of aids. There was a demonstration on “Museumplein” Amsterdam to “Stop Aids Now”. You can take a teddybear and make a photo with hashtag #stopaidsnow. of yourself include the teddybear.

At that moment i did a promise to that for me unknown kid: I will take this teddybear everywhere. So spiritual the kid will see the world how it looks like, and will remember forever.

So this journey is also a little journey for this kid and this Teddybear. You will see some pictures of this teddybear to remember everyone:

“Stop Aids Now”

All seats are locked!

Also all seats on all flights are done now. Not most important, but when you select the right one you will have a comfortable flight.

I always select a seat at the end of the plane. And next to path. You can easily go out your seat and have a little stretch in front of the exit.
