Estes Park is a great little, quaint town that is always going to be a place for people to travel to when they need to get away. When I went this last month. I had taken my cousin Curtis. He was actually working on his Garage door repair OKC marketing when I called him and said hey “C” let’s go to this great little place I found from a client.

When we arrived it was like a fairy tale due to the fact that there was just the most amazing views and sightseeing to be had.

Truly a magical place that will leave you in awe!! I could not believe my eyes that this was where we would be staying for the next 4 weeks. We had such an amazing trip that we decided to call a real estate broker to get us a list of cabins for sale here. So we found several that over looked Marys Lake, which was in the mountains and was unbelievable with all of its views and wild life everywhere.

We are truly lucky to see and be apart of such a great little community. There are plenty of amazing little dives that really great food, and Wine. My favorite part of the trip.
So if you get the chance to make it out to that part of Colorado. DO it!! You will not be disappointed.

Capital of the East

Beijing, China is one of the three most populated cities in the world. Beijing has everything from old to new and from Chinese to Western. There is much to do in Beijing including parks, shopping, delightful cuisine, and more. The best way to get around the city is via bicycle as streets and subways are often very crowded and there are even bicycle tours to help take you around.

798 is the name of a popular art district that used to be home to multiple factories but as artists and organizations started being attracted to the complex it slowly became the art district it is today. Besides galleries it also has cafes, studios, and restaurants. For some natural beauty there is Beihai Park which is Beijing’s largest lake and also the most beautiful. You can buy souvenirs and antiques at the Dirt Market but just know that you’re very unlikely to find anything original or authentic. Be sure to bargain as prices are very likely to be driven up by salesmen.

Another major attraction is the Confucius temple which was built all the way back in 1302 paying tribute to China’s finest era. The temple isn’t directed to a god but to a mortal but despite this people still visit offering gifts and praying. The temple complex also contains the Imperial Academy where government officials were trained.

The Chinese cuisine is known for its deliciousness and one of its trademark foods is dumplings. They are usually served stuffed with pork and either cabbage or chives. Another lesser known food is baozi which are steamed buns filled with meat or vegetables. Baozi are usually served for breakfast but are a delicious light snack for any part of the day.

Of course one of the wonders of the world and as iconic as the Great Pyramids of Giza, the Statue of Liberty, and the Eiffel tower is the Great Wall of China. There are multiple sections of the Great Wall. There’s the Great Wall at Badaling which is mostly restored and perfect for a short visit. Near it but visited by fewer tourists is the Great Wall at Juyongguan which you should visit if you prefer some quiet time. Even less crowded with better views is the Great Wall at Mutianyu. If you want an overnight camping trip then you should visit the Great Wall at Jinshanling which is the least visited section.
