Travel Inspiration: The Wild Wall, China

Am I Dreaming?

Jinshan Ridge, Great Wall of China [China]

The Wild Wall, China | The Jinshanling section of the Great Wall of China is more rugged and remote than the carefully preserved wall that tourists are exposed to in Beijing. Instead of vendors and large tour groups, this section of so-called “wild wall” caters to more intrepid adventurers. The further you hike along the wall, the less upkeep you will encounter. Watchtowers, staircases and even the top of the wall itself have begun to crumble after centuries of wind, rain and snow.

The delight of finding an unknown park, a captivating history museum or a fantastic desert means exploration is never far from Carmen Fifield’s mind. Carmen’s favorite travel memories include biking to historic sites on the island of Guernsey, huffing and puffing up the stairs to the Great Wall of China and eating the most delicious crab cake ever in Halifax, Nova Scotia.

Carmen’s Favorite Travel Tip: Say goodbye to airplane food and tuck some fruit and your favorite sandwich into your carry-on.
