I think enjoying food is the best way to socialize, build relationships and learn about new cultures and viewpoints. On my last full night in Shanghai, I booked an #Airbnb experience for a traditional Chinese New Year dinner hosted by a Shanghai resident & his friends. I wanted to enjoy great local food but do it in a personal or familial setting. Zhiyi & his friends made me feel like one of their own. The food cooked by his mate, Wenfei was outstanding! I learned a lot about how various Chinese cultures celebrate Lunar New Year & how they socialize over food in general! I was honored to be Zhiyi’s first guest & I hope more visitors are lucky enough to experience his taste of a Chinese New Year celebration!

My Airbnb hostess strongly recommended I get a drink at the Vue Bar at the top of the Hyatt! “Best view in Shanghai”, she promised! An understatement for sure. Here are a few of my favorite pics from that night including my walk to the bar along the Bund at dusk! Shanghai was the first international skyline I ever saw & it was the start of my love for skyscrapers in far flung cities! It’s still one of the BEST skylines in the world! BTW, all but the last photos are #NoFilter, just shot on my lovely #iphoneX with a software noise reduction! The first was my favorite as it was the night after the super lunar eclipse! #ShanghaiThad #BrooklynDeferred #SoloTravel #LastWeekInChina #BehindTheFirewall #brooklyndeferred #iphonex #solotravel #nofilter #behindthefirewall #lastweekinchina #shanghaithad
I decided to take my first trip of 2018 (and my first solo trip ever) back to the first international country I ever visited and I’m so glad I did! This past week I learned visiting mainland China right before Chinese New Year is an excellent time to tour. I also learned that the Chinese firewall blocking Google/FB/IG/SC/WhatsApp is NO JOKE! My first experience with Beijing was overwhelming, scary and frustrating but this trip was completely different! And even though I’d visited Tiananmen Square & the Forbidden City the last time, my latest tour took me to new places and educated me on different perspectives of this Beijing landmark. #BehindTheFirewall #TiananmenThad #BrooklynDeferred #SoloTravel #LastWeekInChina #iphonex #tiananmenthad #brooklyndeferred #iphonex #solotravel #behindthefirewall #lastweekinchina
