At the beginning of the year I flew from Kuala Lumpur in Malaysia into Shanghai China after a week long job that I had a blast on. I got Into Shanghai super early at like 6am after flying overnight. Having all my luggage with me was not the most ideal in a big city by yourself, but all I could do was tell myself this is all going to be worth it as soon as Im settled in. After chilling in a few Starbucks for about 6hrs editing I was finally able to check into my airbnb. I love using there services when I travel because its a great way to meet people and find places you need to be while your there. I spent 4 days in Shanghai the last 2 of them being my birthday, one in Shanghai one in the U.S. Being alone in a foreign county where no one speaks your language is fun and interesting but tuff all at the same time but it taught me a lot what and what not to do next time.
Next I was off to Beijing to see 4 of my greatest friends! I was so excited to have people to talk to after being gone 12 days by myself. I got to the Airbnb a couple hours before the boys so I claimed my room and got all settled in making the kitchen table a mess for electronics. The subway system takes time getting used to and can be very confusing my friends carrying all there luggage and snowboards took them 2 hrs from the airport and watching them show up and see me was priceless, 3 confused puppies coming out of the underground subway. The next day we cruised all of Tiananmen Square which was pretty awesome. It was so cold in China while we were there end of January. We got to see the China Museum which was badass, and cruise all the awesome city streets Beijing had to offer. Next day we found an awesome day Charter to the Great Wall. for 100 bucks the man drove us there chilled while we hiked it for a few hours then took us home. I have to say it was the highlight of being in China. Although Shanghais cityscape at night was hard to beat, walking in the Great Wall was def on the top of my list. I had the driver take us to a more less crowded spot of the great wall and it offered a ski lift up to the wall, then after we were done it was a metal bobsled that took about 10 minutes due to foreign traffic, but with a clear path wide open 4 min no problem! I have some awesome footage of the trip and cant wait to share my videos!
