The Great Wall of China, 8th of May 2018
Jebel and I, we made it!
We know each other since 2009-ish and our friendship grew better since 2017-something and a few weeks before my trip to Bei Jing, we hung out for a coffee and he is one of my friends, that I really enjoy reflecting with.
He also likes and appreciates traveling – different than my ‘ style ‘ of course hahahaha – and he knew that I was almost leaving and I was telling him about the ” fun ” moments when applying for a visa for China in the Chinese embassy and when I told him about the ” crazy price ” that I paid for my flight, only 465 euros (500 dollars-ish, 400 pounds-ish) for round trip, he checked for flights and prices and he found a similar price with a different airline (KLM via Schiphol/Amsterdam, the Netherlands) for the same period.
Most of my friends who enjoys traveling as well are definitely interested in going as well or even joining me ” Some-Day “, but 99% of them won’t come at the time that I’m going, you know the ” classic ” reasons: because of their work, they can’t because of their partner or the plans they have or lack of travel money or simply they are not interested in that place or going with me, but Jebel, he was considering, so I was telling him, that if he still wants to go around the same time like me, he need to apply for a visa with the ” urgent procedure ” at the embassy.
The fact that he is standing with me, at one of the 7 Wonders of the World, he is that 1% of my friends, who actually surprised me! 🤙🏽🤙
