I am back, wow what a holiday!! :D:D



Me, on the Great Wall, a dream come true ^_^

Just a very brief blog today, we had a totally amazing holiday, there will be lots of blogs to follow, but at the moment I am desperately trying to sort out some of the nearly 2000 photos that I took!!!! Will leave you with a few ‘us’ photos to be going on with, hopefully it won’t be too long until I can do a proper blog!



The Temple of Heaven, Beijing.


Touching the buddhas tummy for good luck, Xi’an


My daughter, sister in law and myself on our way up to the Great Wall at Mitianyu, it was wonderful!!!
