Harbin Ice festival here we come!

Ice ice babaaay! Yeah. Time to work out the journeys for 2017. You know corporates run budgeting processes around this period too…and so do we. As we wipe our hands dry from the travel handprinting we have completed so far for 2016, it is with a sense of excitement to commence the plans for 2017.

So many places, so little time/money…

Therefore, it was mandated that the burn rate be taken slow from the start of the year, 2017 that is. And we start with taking a packaged tour to the frigid northeast of China at the end of 2016!! A land of snow and ice, there is a world renown ice sculpture festival held in the city of Harbin every year. We wrote about it as an option earlier this year (read here). Having read from fellow travelers about their independent travel experiences earlier this year, we decided it would be both more economical and prudent to have someone escort us around.

Sold! Time to rummage through the wardrobe for our winter wear…

      1. I didn’t do anything. Actually had the camera hanging from my neck the whole time. I don’t think it did any damage as I am still using the same camera from then, but the batteries did not last long when we were outdoor. You might want to bring a spare just in case 🙂

  1. Sounds like a lot of fun! We can trade stories of your snow and our sand on Christmas as we head out to the Western Cape 🙂
    I want to experience snow so I guess I’m jealous, especially it’s Christmas and a white Christmas is traditional but I’m not quite sure how I am in the cold as we don’t often go below zero (in winter).
