Shandong Province

Visit Shandong province China

In July 2009 I embarked on a three-week tour around Shandong Province in eastern China. It was my first time traveling the country and it was a magical trip that turned out to be a real assault on the senses.

This was long before I’d even thought of becoming a travel blogger. Consequently, it was a real challenge cobbling together the images needed for this modest series of travel reports.

I’ve also written some short stories about my Shandong escapades:
