The Gorgeous Scenery of Guilin, China

Li River, Guilin, China

The journey down the River Li near Guilin is memorable for the beautiful scenery. It’s also full of boat loads of tourists, but you can’t see them in this shot. Along the length of the river the locals fish and wash and go about their daily business. If you’re ever in the region this is a must-do trip since not only is the scenery stunning, but there are photo opportunities galore.

Check out my post at Marie Treanor’s blog about books as gifts for Christmas. I’m also giving away a download of Christmas is Coming. While you’re there make sure you scroll up and down since lots of authors are talking about their Christmas highlights and giving away prizes. Contest winners are announced on Sunday.

Also take the time to check out the Christmas DIY posts at Maria Zaninni’s blog. You’ll find a variety posts ranging from recipes to jewellery to table decorations. Once again, scroll down to read all the posts since there are lots of interesting ones.

How are you holding up with Christmas preparations?

    How beautiful and peaceful it seems… I love the hills around it… so fantasy-like.

      It was just like a fantasy world. Those hills were everywhere even in the main town. A hobbit could have popped out at any time.

    I envy your world travel. At least I can live vicariously through your pictures.

      I envy you your homestead life. I know it can be hard at times and takes effort, but I know it’s rewarding too.

      Travel is something I’d wanted to do since I was a kid. I’m lucky my husband shares my passion.

      It was a pretty part of the country.

    I’m with Maria. I love visiting your blog anyway, but getting to travel the world vicariously through your photos can not be quantified.

    Thanks so much for sharing :-)

      Thanks, Angela :)

    I’m like Maria, living vicariously. Thanks, Shelley :)

    What a peaceful scene. I think China would be an interesting place to visit, though I’d likely starve if there too long.

    All my pre-christmas prep is pretty much done. I just have to get through dinner that day and I’m finished. lol
