    @mercerik It was Hebei province near Beijing. I have lived there for a year. Of course, I have visited other parts but I spent my year there mostly.
    @firebombmarkus

    Beijing is one of the places in China that I would like to visit when I go back to Hongkong. 

    I've never lived in any other countries aside from the Philippines and the United States. I've been to Cancun and Puerto Vallarta, Mexico but that was work related. There was no problem there because I can speak a little bit of Spanish. I would probably be homesick if I can't communicate with anyone because of the language barriers.

    Life is a circle of happiness, sadness, hard times and good times.
    If you are going through hard times, have faith that good times are on the way.

    @mercerik I am not that impressed with Beijing, not quite a fan of huge cities. It is a challenge indeed. In small towns, you can't even speak English with anyone except for "hello", "hi" etc. Hence, the best option is a translator.

    I learned a little bit of Chinese working for 12 years with a Chinese boss like xiΓ¨xiΓ¨ for thank you or duō xiΓ¨ for thanks a lot, diΓ nhuΓ  for telephone and other basic conversation words. I know how to count in Chinese because I play the real Ancient Mahjong as shown in the Screen Shot with #5, #6 & #7 characters, #4 & #8 sticks or bamboos. It is played with total of 4 players on the Mahjong Table with the actual tiles. I have a set here at home although I have no one to play with. Did you learn this game when you were there?

    Wow! Nice photos guys and gals! I wonder how I missed this thread. Here's a few photos I took from Macau last year. If you're traveling to Hong Kong / China, it is worthwhile to take a side trip to Macau. Macau is the Vegas in the east.
    Also, The House of Water Dance show is amazing!

    Wow - awesome stories and pictures.  Thank you so much for [email protected]  @firebombmarkus @flew66 ; I've only seen Macau in the movies.  I'd like to visit one day.  @Mercerik - have you been back to Hong Kong since it reverted?  I didn't notice that much of a change on the surface.

    Here are some photos from a place I'm sure some of you (if not most) will recognize (I love the wine!):

    @firebombmarkus, there's no hills in Denmark πŸ˜‹

    It definitely looks like a Nordic country... the castle makes me believe it's Germany but not 100% sure! Could be Austria or even maybe Romania...?!

    I'm in Denmark right now actually and here's how it looks around 😊

    Yeah, you are definitely right @QueenMia I just thought it might be Scandinavia because of these cute houses but when I look closer it might also be Germany, they have similar style there.

    @QueenMia and @firebombmarkus - yes it is definitely Germany in the wine country region alongside the Mosel River.  There is a charming town called Bernkastel right on the Mosel - that's all those charming houses you see.  You can also see some of the grape vines in some of the pictures.  I was in the town for their wine festival.  Lots of fun - I love their semi-sweet white wines in particular.
    Thank you for sharing the pictures of Denmark.  I love that country (in face I really enjoy all of Scandinavia).  I took my kids to the original Legoland in Denmark and we stayed at the Legoland hotel.  They had so much fun - especially earning their 'Drivers Licenses' on the little go kart course..  They were the perfect age (around 5 and 7).

    Excellent! I just know the North of Germany, around Hamburg but definitely want to go to the wine region and also see the castles of the Black Forest! 

    I absolutely love Scandinavia too, @bearwithme! Been to all the Scandinavian countries and my aim is to retire here! For now, I'm happy with the Spanish sun - I definitely need sunlight in my life :tongue: 

    Some pics of Norway and Iceland... my fav kind of landscape! Do you have some to share about your trips in here too, @bearwithme?

    @firebombmarkus, any stories to share about Germany?

    @QueenMia - beautiful pictures!  I haven't been to Iceland yet - that is definitely on my list.  I might have a few photos from when I did a Baltic cruise - but I'm not sure where they are - I'll have to do some research and see what I can find. Here are some more photos (definitely not Scandinavia):
