China is modernizing at a head spinning pace. Many of the historical buildings, cultural antiquities and relics of the world’s oldest continuous civilization are being obliterated,
My sister and I decided to visit China in January of 2009 to explore these cultural sites and experience Chinese culture before gentrification.
This book is in a two-part series. This volume is our journey from Beijing to the Silk Road and the second volume, Exploring China II, chronicles our journey into Southern China.
After majoring in college in fine arts, I was bit by the travel bug and embarked on a successful and sustaining career in the travel industry. I’ve worked for cruise lines, tour operators and a 20+ year career in management at a major airline. I've been fortunate to have the opportunity to travel and experience different cultures and plan to continue this journey indefinitely! I enjoy working with the medium of photography and blurb gives me the opportunity to combine both my passions for photography and travel and create lasting works to share.
