Disney, they said, will be packed with tourists, they said… We know😭 we replied, but I still wanted us to go…SO SO BADLY!

Day’s 45-46: ​Lights, Camera, Kangding🎇

​Day’s 39-40: Can’t Stop Yakking👀

Fluffy cows everywhere. That’s all I see…fluffy cows EVERYWHERE! And weirdly, I don’t mean in presence. It’s not like there’s Yak’s walking down the streets or chilling out in cafes. Although this swanky guy was all dressed up in the middle of Shangri-La Old town 💃🏼… His purpose? To lift Chinese tourists to help them… Continue reading ​Day’s 39-40: Can’t Stop Yakking👀

​Day 38: Tiger Leaping Gorge @ Lijiang🐅

(written 09/08) Scrap that, I should change this post’s name to Tiger Leaping Gorge @ Shangri-La as it’s situated between the two towns – and I strongly advise that if you plan to go to Shangri-La after Lijiang (like most backpackers/tourists do), go there straight from your hike…INSTEAD of doing what we’ve just done… We’re… Continue reading ​Day 38: Tiger Leaping Gorge @ Lijiang🐅
