Squeezing the most out of life | An Aussie and a Colombian living life with a wandering spirit. Eight years together & over 60 countries up our sleeves, we're sharing the love |

Eternal Spring

Spring has been slipping quietly in to the dark and windy corners of Dali and whispering her delight in the change of season. The fields are starting to laugh as pink blossoms, yellow fields and white magnolias transform the countryside.

Slowly, slowly, the sun has been warming up our Wintery bones and the atmosphere is becoming more infectious and alive. It’s a beautiful time of year in Southern China as the promise of longer days and brighter skies begins to unfold.

Cycling through the villages that survive on the generosity of nearby Erhai Lake, it’s easy to imagine the earth drinking hungrily from the water, gaining strength and gathering herself for the green days ahead.

With a history that dates back more than 5,000 years, some of the outer lying villages of Dali coexist simply with nature through farming. It’s humbling to see how ancient trees that stand homage to the passing of time are beginning to offer up shade for yet another year.
