Easter Sunday Adventures

THE KING HAS RISEN- JESUS IS ALIVE!

Today was a really good day. My parents and I caught the ferry from Auckland to Rangitoto Island (despite almost missing the ferry as I was driving…) and hiked up the volcanic mountain. The weather was fine until the last 20 minutes of our hike down the mountain when it started to rain. I bought my camera along and thought I would post a few photos on here.

China through my lens- Part 4: Guilin

Yangshuo, Guilin is my favourite place I travelled to while in China. (You can read about my travel adventure and thoughts on Yangshuo in my earlier post under travel!)

Yangshuo thoroughly satisfied my inner photography cavings. Without further ado, here are my photographs.

Okay this one technically isn’t ‘my’ photograph, it’s more of a behind the scenes of my photography 😛ImageImageImageImageImageImage

These photos are taken at the ‘Impression Sanjie Liu’ perfomance. Unlike any other theatre performance, this spectacle is performed in the world’s largest natural theatre. The water of Li River is the stage and the misty hills in signature style of Guilin’s mountain ranges are the backdrop. Many of the performers are actual natives in the rural Guilin region. This show is a must see for any traveller in Yangshuo and it certainly leaves a lasting impression!

This is one of the walls in Ryley’s Cafe. If you read my travel diaries post on Guilin then you will know how much I adore this place!Image

The board with an abundance of notes left by customers!

Photos inside the Silver caves. The cave is HUGE and the formations are very impressive. The coloured lighting makes everything feel rather surreal as you walk through.Image

China through my lens- Part 3: Hainan

While staying with my family in Zhuhai, we travelled to Hainan Island. This was my first time visiting Hainan and though it was fun, coming from New Zealand made the sun, blue sky and beach environment less of a novelty.

This is what winter is like in southern China!

This was a show we saw on Phoenix Island. It consists of water acrobats and the performers do some pretty incredible tricks using jet boats and other water equipment! I highly recommend this spectacle.

Apologies for the blurry and not straight photo. I think I may invest in a tripod…
