Our Chinese experience in a snapshot
3 years 8 months ago (13.January.2018 - 12:48 CET) by
China was supposed to be a land of passage. It ended up being the final destination of our trip. We were supposed to spend two-three weeks three. We ended up spending one full month. We had planned to go to Beijing, Shanghai and then all the way to Lhasa. We ended up visiting Beijing and Shanghai as well as very rural areas in Hunan province, multicultural Gansu province, historical Xi’an in Shanxi province, and enchanting Jiangsu province.
If you have followed us so far, you will have expected this post with an attempt of a summary of our Chinese experience in seven questions.

On 6th September, we attended the 'Profit with Purpose: The Tastemakers’ workshop. It was an inspiring, insightful and enjoyable event, and a great opportunity for learning and connections. We won’t be able to attend the next ones of the series because we will be travelling but we were glad to attend this one!

We wanted to share a completely different post this week, following up from the four days we had just spent in France (see a couple of pictures on Facebook here and on Instagram here). But things change, emotions change and we decided that it was ok to change our media plan too!

We put together a great cause, our passion for outdoor activities and our graphic talent and we came up with an idea. We would ‘draw’ a 20-mile long Y on our inline skates across London, create a buzz around it and source funds.
Our inline-skating challenge took place on 2nd August 2015. And ABCIty.org was born
