The Lavender Fields of Songpan

Sanna and I headed to Songpan, a small town in Sichuan, where we hoped to join a horse-trek. Unfortunately, the recent rainy weather meant that the trails were muddy and unsuitable for horseback riding. Although we were slightly disappointed, we soon realized that there is so much more to explore in this little village.

Fairy Pools & Tibetan Yak Butter Tea

If there's one thing I learned about my trip to Jiuzhaigou, it is that the locals here are some of the kindest and most generous people that you will meet in China! The scenery and natural formations in Jiuzhai Valley are awe-inspiring, but it's the amazing people I met here that made this trip so special.

Jiuzhaigou National Park

Jiuzhaigou (or Jiuzhai Valley, as it is sometimes referred to in English) is Sichuan's star attraction - a national park and UNESCO World Heritage Site that attracts millions of visitors each year. Tourists gaze in awe at the emerald pools, picturesque waterfalls, and verdant forests.
