    Great footage! What kind of camera do you use? I just bought myself a starter and put together a vacation movie of my own.

    Keep doing what you’re doing!

    i love your title to this, father-land! you make me have an impulsive to learn to shoot video, cuz its really more impressive and vivid than photos. p.s. which machine do you use to shoot video? and thanks for making me miss my countries now.

      Haha, anytime Fiona. Glad you like it. I use a Panasonic Lumix GF-1 and iMovie. Pretty simple stuff to learn if you feel like it.

  3. Amazing video, I spent a year living in China and it brought back so many memories – I love that people take to the town square and dance in the evening. Thanks for sharing!

      Thank you, China was an interesting place, I bet living there for a year was quite the experience!

  4. Nice.. you have a knack for capturing the spirit of travel with your videos.

  5. I like all the variation in the scenery – the karsts, the cities, the backstreets. I’m really looking forward to exploring China next year!

      Thanks Audrey! I’m sure you’ll love it. I need to spend at least another year over there. Hope you have a great time!
