Western China (Central Asia)
"Travel is more than the seeing of sights; it is the change that goes on deep and permanent in the ideas of living." I am an adventure traveler who happens to love writing , photography and videography . Oh...and I also live in one of the most undiscovered (and beautiful!) corners of the world - Xinjiang in far western China! I've literally written the book on travel to this region and produce the most popular video series on the beauty and culture of Xinjiang and it's various ethnic cultures. Check out my YouTube Channel in the link below! 🏼🏼🏼🏼
