Travel with Richard: Parts Unknown
Beijing Foodies (*sharing will be in Chinese)
Travel is a six-letter word. It is easy to say but hard to do.
There should be a slight variation from travel to vacation. To me, travel means walking into the local’s life, living and learning alongside them. In other words, travel enriches one’s life spiritually.
It is understood that we are restricted millennials, having too many commitments yet too less freedom. So we turn to others. I still remember those afterwork fun, having ice-cream while curling up on the couch, and watching Anthony Bourdain tasting the authentic pho in Hanoi with then-President Obama. They were chilling with local people in the small dining place and the rain in Hanoi was non-stop.
Now the searching for a travel image in Beijing turns out with results. I found Richard, the former IBer and VCer who switched to become a travel professional and loves to share the unknown parts of the world with us, the restricted people. Richard has been to 70 countries in the world (TCC standard), most of them are rarely visited by the Chinese people. He has experienced primitive life in the Peru amazon jungle, fired AK47 and driven tank in Ukraine, in addition to chasing penguins in Antarctica. Are those things appealing to you?
Let’s get together at Ginger of Sanlitun this Sunday night (8/18), listening to Richard’s sharing, finding more fun destinations and his interesting life experience, acquitting the financial world and embracing the travel fun!
