Enjoy Your Vacation on a Whole Different Level

Everyone travels for different reasons.  It may be for history, sightseeing, or even the food.  They are all valid opportunities to enjoy your destination adequately.  However, I have found over the years, even when doing the stereotypical see the Eiffel Tour in Paris, you do not have to do it in a stereotypical way.  So, here is how you can enjoy your vacation destination on a whole different level.

Beijing- Stepping Back in Time and Seeing the Future on the Other Side

***One single warning – DON’T DRINK THE WATER or HAVE ANYTHING MADE FROM THE WATER ie. MOCHA FRAPPICCINO.

Monday night began my 72+ hours of hell in China. In some Mexico it is called Montezuma’s Revenge, I’m not exactly what it is called in China, but I call it General Pao’s Revenge, and it isn’t fun. If you read my article on Shanghai, I noted not to drink frozen drinks while in China. I made the mistake of having a Coke with ice, 2 Icee’s, a Dairy Queen frozen drink, and a Mocha Frappuccino from Starbucks. In China, you must only drink water from sealed bottles and no ice. My mistake nearly caused me to miss going to the Great Wall of China.
