Recommended Posts

Where to start?

 

Japan and China have always been on my wish list for places to visit. So after doing the Japan trip last year it was no-brainer to join the TPR China trip this year.

I cannot imagine a better (more fun) way to check out this country then with a group of friends, riding some coasters and having a blast.

 

I assumed this trip would be an adventure and yes it was. But it was an awesome adventure. Happy to have been part of it.

 

Another place in the world i can take of my bucket list

 

Anyway, i guess you are not that interested in my story.. so here are some pictures from this trip.

 

Let's start with day 0, a few parks in the Beijing area

 

Hope you enjoy it.

The portable county outhouses we had to use on my Dad's farm during harvest season look pretty good in comparison.

Day 1 of the trip was Culture Day.

 

Well let's be honest.. when in China.. you should try to see a bit of the Great Wall and maybe some other cultural/historical important locations..

 

The wall was the wall, the square was.. ehm.. open and the Forbidden city.. it kept repeating, repeating and repeating..

 

But at least i can say i have been there, seen it and...

 

.. we still have some pictures

DSC_4360.thumb.JPG.c797011127fff2f950bccda486ae130e.JPG

after driving for a while we got higher up in the mountains.. clifs and.. ehm.. what's that?

DSC_4363.thumb.JPG.167cd24710f3eaca59e2d845a632b5b1.JPG

torture work out setup?

DSC_4368.JPG.ba754852b1428eaaebb44ad1c22e288a.JPG

where are the guns??

DSC_4373.JPG.6024b27f96ddb3369040c402662c284d.JPG

owh wait.. it's the great wall.. sorry

DSC_4374.JPG.2f724c751c81c71fdc3517cd2f29c178.JPG

rocks, clifs and yes.. it looked pretty impressive

DSC_4379.thumb.JPG.9ee1579c1d829dae3b60942a474fc3c4.JPG

2 things are wrong in this image.. sleeves and shirt color

DSC_4384.JPG.0193ca30dd6b9c6d3618da8f60cb55d6.JPG

i guess we made it

DSC_4385.JPG.6b60497c0481bc8b46d6c24acccb00a6.JPG

yeah :) sliding car :)

DSC_4392.JPG.7479918c352d909520a22959425550fe.JPG

hardly any stairs but these things instead :)

DSC_4395.JPG.a2cbd3be36628f40f5d32829775a6fe9.JPG

DSC_4398.JPG.0db6712d3ac9850f7c56061d76bf5898.JPG

DSC_4408.JPG.d59d0b104506a0a2efcccd9c9e2165e2.JPG

from pretty high up i can see why some folks compare big crowds to ant farms..

DSC_4411.thumb.JPG.9c2596cd9c985d186694baa89353a6e3.JPG

i guess this was the exercise route (aka lots and lots of stairs)

DSC_4416.JPG.09870b72dbaaf9dde68f9be6a3efaef2.JPG

and it kept going and going. I'm pretty sure that if you wanted to you could easily spent hours walking along the route..

DSC_4423.JPG.0078043414570ab8480060addf0525bf.JPG

back to town.. i believe this building was "important"

DSC_4430.thumb.JPG.fdedec4516236588a525619263a2a9d0.JPG

Great pictures Hanno! Sorry, this is late but I am so happy someone got a shot of the bathrooms at Crab Island. I have discribed them to friends, but no one can imagine. Brings back some memories.......

I love the contrast between the gray, smoggy day and Larry's fluorescent orange shirt.

 

He was at least easy to spot and then avoid!

 

Such a fine line between love and hate!

Awesome photos Hanno! So jealous I couldn't go on this trip! What was in that random plane in your first set of pictures?

 

2 photos of the infamous "Crab Island Bathrooms of Chinese Death"

 

It looks like a prison or glorified concentration camp!

Thanks for capturing the imfamous falling-off-the-track moment from the "Circle Reciprocal Coaster." That thing was terrifying! I'm glad that Scottish Steve derived so much pleasure from Space Trip ride.

THIS!!!!

 

 

Basically, this is the coaster that, half-way through the return portion, doesn't have enough momentum to make it through the loop.... so it stalls out, *falls* onto the upstop wheels, and then what sounds it scrapes metal all the way around!

 

We rode it in 2008, and I thought for SURE this ride would have been closed due to some horrific accident, and I was SHOCKED to see that not only was it still operating, but it STILL did this!!!

 

SCARY!!!!
