    My travels abroad (1) Foreword

    A few days ago, I saw a friend's article in headlines recalling a trip abroad, and I was impressed by passage in it: "After a few years, when I can no longer run on road, I sit at home and read travel notes. also a kind of beautiful pleasure.” This sentence touched me, reminded me of my experience of traveling abroad and encouraged me to take time to write this text.

    In fact, I've always had idea that I want to write down and write down my past experiences for nothing else, just to show off. Let your free time be enriched by reading them, and a sense of self-satisfaction will appear. In future, when I can’t travel far, sit on balcony, bask in sun, make tea, look out window, remember past, reread written and admire landscapes of past will be a great blessing.

    Remembering my experience of going abroad, I remember my entire working life. Due to work, I have traveled abroad to study and inspect, and I have been to Africa, United States, Western Europe, Southeast Asia and other more than 20 countries. and regions. I saw a lot and learned a lot. It is a pity that photography in early years was still a very expensive thing, and many of them did not leave video materials. When digital cameras appeared, some photos from foreign trips were copied to a mobile hard drive, which, unfortunately, was damaged and not readable. It so happened that I was an MBA student at Tsinghua University that year and wanted to recover data using my hard drive, but my classmates in Beijing said it was very expensive. Thinking about early digital photos with very few pixels, even if restored, it didn't make much sense, so I gave up.

    During my trips abroad, since most of them are introductory and working, part of time abroad is spent on work. Fortunately, when I worked for a government enterprise, such a study trip abroad usually set aside a certain amount of time to appreciate local culture and beauty. Therefore, in every trip abroad, in addition to necessary work, most of time is spent on enjoying beautiful scenery. Just like in Vietnam that year, after visiting land where factory was built to appreciate transnational Banjo Falls, which is called Detian Falls in China, because of roads in Vietnam, I just took a 9-hour car to at time I thought it was hard work and I don't think it's worth it, but today it's worth it because there are some places we can't go in this life. It's also like when we were in Egyptian pyramids back then. Several people debated whether or not to go down to see. Some people said that there could be bad factors. I don't know what book they saw, so they didn't go through tunnel. Underground Palace, looking back, sorry I missed a goodopportunity, and that opportunity will not present itself again in future.

    Actually, every time I go abroad, there will be a lot of interesting things, including abroad, as well as some interesting things that we plan to visit in China. Although many years have passed, some of memories are very distant or a little blurry, but today, looking back, I'm still very happy, so sound of recording these and typing on keyboard on computer sounds nice.
