Views of Nanjing



It seems that every Chinese city of any size has a hotel or office tower where you can go look out on the expanse of the city. This is Nanjing from the top of one such.

The greenery in the park and the mountain beyond are why we found Nanjing one of the most pleasant Chinese cities we visited.


Yes, this photo is a zoom-in on one section of the photo above, but bear with me…
The yellow buildings around the pagoda in the center are a monastery. What looks like a road to the left of the pagoda isn’t a road, it’s a section of the old city wall. Surrounded, as you see, by high-rise buildings and a dense city of over 5 million people. Old China, new China, don’t you think?


The pagoda, up close, just for good measure :)

About wandermom

". . .life is short and the world is wide" - Simon Raven I'm not sure I've ever consciously planned a trip based on this sentiment, but it definitely influences my subconscious! I've been traveling as frequently and widely as possible since I finished school. And I love it. I love the research, the planning, the fervent packing and the curiosity of exploring somewhere I've never been before. My husband & I are both Irish - as in born-in-Ireland. But we live in Seattle. We have two boys: wild, boisterous, regular boys. So, since becoming a Mom, I've been a WanderMom. Given our slightly-unusual family situation, routine "visits-to-Grandma" are international trips requiring passports, 10hr-flights and (oh joy!) airport transfers. I have rants, raves and opinions about how, where & why to travel with kids (start them as young as you can, I say!). I hope to learn even more by researching topics which other wandermoms may be interested in reading about on this blog. Passports, pacifiers, diapers and gameboys at the ready - off we go!
