Is healthy nutrition possible when we travel?

In my recent post - Eating for Healthy Life - I wrote about my dietary habits: what I eat and what I don't eat, in order to keep in good health. I easily adhere to my diet when I am at home and in control of food that I buy, prepare and cook. But, is healthy nutrition possible when we travel? I am not going to answer this question now. Rather, I am going to look at what I did during my past travels. Back ...

The Summer Palace was an imperial garden and a summer retreat in the Qing dynasty. It's a vast complex of palaces, lakes and parks in the north-western part of the modern day Beijing.

Forbidden City – Beijing

The Forbidden City is a vast palace complex of the Ming and Qing dynasties, located in the very heart of Beijing. I visited the Forbidden City for the first time in 2009. That was also my first time in China and in Beijing. I went back to Beijing in 2016. But, by the time of my second visit, I had very vague memories of the palace. Although it wasn't new to me, its immense size and beauty captivated me ...

Suzhou

After a week in Shanghai, it was time for me to move to my next destination – Suzhou, a city of just over 4 million people, some 100km north-west from Shanghai. After Shanghai, it seemed like a very small place, although it was still a very big city.



MY TRAVEL FROM SHANGHAI TO SUZHOU

My journey from Shanghai to Suzhou took approximately 20 minutes. Travelling in ...

Shanghai

I visited China five times and my most recent longer visit was in June 2016. I went to Shanghai for work, but I extended my stay and visited Suzhou, Nanjing and Beijing. Although this trip predates my blog, I decided to write about it because it seems that not many other bloggers visit and write about China, probably because of stringent visa requirements. It's also more expensive than other countries in ...
