2012-2014 I used + a lot. Was fun when I was in China because unlike Facebook it was not blocked and I had a lot of interaction with people in the cities I visited, posting pictures and observations and people reacting on it.

In 2011 and 2012 I toured through on my own. Because the historical villages Hongcun and Xidi were difficult to reach by public transport, I booked a day tour with a tour group. Me as the only westerner in a group of appr. 45 Chinese. Maybe since I speak some Chinese it was a very nice day.

Flying to Amsterdam to take part in a workshop co-organised by the Commons Network to help formulate a strategy to get the European Union to shift its focus from “Digital Single Market” to a goal that prioritises people/personhood/human rights and a healthy commons instead of corporations/business/the market.

Autumn has just started and I'm already planning a long cycle tour for next summer 😋
From home in Zoetermeer, Netherlands to Budapest in Hungary. Or further...to Timosoara or Cluj Napoca in Romania.
