I'd like to talk about a place I visited with my parents when I was about 10 years old in 2004. We went to the Lake District in Huangshan one summer. This is a lovely place, full of green fields, hills and of course lakes. It was about a 2-hour drive from our house and one into the countryside, the surrounding areas just became more and more beautiful to see.?
In the summer, it is the perfect weather for exploring the lakes, from Lake Taiping to Flower Mountain, we explored the surrounding areas, with a visit to Huangshan mountain, which is a well known attraction and also the places visited bu Xu Xiake, a?traveler and litterateur in my country . I was very interested in reading his artwork when I was younger and enjoyed following his footprint.
There are also many hiking trails in the Lake District, over the fells and beyond. We walked a great deal, with a map and a compass to guide us and even stopped for a picnic on the top of a hill. I enjoyed walking in the hills, learning about each area and how to read a map.?
I would definitely visit the Lakes again and would like to see how the areas have changed since I was last there. I would also like to visit Xuxiake's footprints again,as I am older, I think I would appreciate it more. He is a very inspiring author and illustrator and I love that he was inspired by the nature and animals around he.??I would also like to stay in a hotel near to Lake Taiping and if the weather is good, hire a boat and sail around to enjoy the surrounding nature.
