 Today I'm headed back to China to spend Chinese New Years with a local family. Get ready for some awesome picture, stories, and the madness that is Chinese New Year. Until then enjoy this photo on the Great Wall. I think it is one of the best pictures I've ever taken. I mean how often do you see a picture of the Great Wall with zero people in it. #travel #ttot #travelstoke #livetravelchannel #traveladdict #ilovetravel #bbctravel #guardiantravelsnap #unesco #landscape #picture #photo #china #igtravel #travelgram #beijing #chinagram #backpacker #travelblogger #epic #traveller #china🇨🇳 #greatwall #greatwallofchina #traveldudes #travelling #adventure  It's time for my annual 2017 travel summary.

 Europe is one place that has had a huge impact on my life. It is one part of the world that I always return to over and over again. Italy was my first solo trip, and it was a trip that planted the seed for what has become my career as a travel blogger. I'm curious. What continents or countries have had the biggest impact on your life? #Europe #venice #TopEuropePhoto #MeetTheWorld #travelstoke #ForbesTravelGuide #GuardianTravelSnaps #BBCTravel #TravelAwesome #Livetravelchannel #PassionPassport #BeautifulDestinations #travel #traveling #TFLers #instatravel #instago #instagood #Europe #mytravelgram #travelgram #travelingram #igtravel #ilovetravel #traveladdict #Iwanttotravel #travelblog #travelblogger #photo  One of my favorite countries in Europe is Croatia. The mainland is beautiful, the coast breathtaking, and the islands are full of charm. Have you been to Croatia?
