ProGreat Wall, history, unique experience

ConsEnormous language and cultural barriers

Back in 2004, I decided to take a six month career break and further decided that I would occupy most of this time by taking a four month trip around Asia. I also toyed with the idea of South America, as just like Asia, there are several countries there I would like to visit one day. But in the...

Open question Answer

Answer

Take a good sense of humour, an open mind and a big supply of patience. You will need all three. But if you mean practical 'stuff' to take, I'd recommend getting a kindle registered to a UK address so you can download English books whenever you want to, and if you're anything like me, a good supply of Marmite and salt & vinegar crisps as well as a good supply of any medication that you need or might need (it may not be easy to find or explain).
