This past weekend, we had Friday off so we flew to Beijing for the weekend. It was only a two hour flight so it ended up being an awesome place to go for such a short amount of time. Of course, we really could have used another day or two in the city, but we'll take what we can get!
On Friday afternoon, we braved the Beijing subway and went to go check out the Forbidden City. The Forbidden City was the Imperial Palace of the Ming and Qing Dynasties. The place is just enormous so I feel like we saw only a small slice in a few hours. One of my favourite spots was the Imperial garden. We rented a tilt-shift lens for the weekend, in case any of you are curious! :)
