On a Boat Tour from Guilin to Yangshou

Sandra Bauknecht-Boat Tour_Guilin Yangshou

On Wednesday, I flew over Kunming with Lucky Air to Guilin. From there, I took yesterday morning a boat on the beautiful Lijiang River to Yangshou. The cruise was amazing with a very interesting lunch. Have you ever tried snake wine?

The river reminded me of a jade ribbon winding among thousands of grotesque peaks. The reflections of the hills in the clear and greenish water were like bright and beautiful pictures. And I couldn’t stop taking them. Here are my favourites, enjoy!

In the boat’s fancy outdoor kitchen, the lunch was prepared.

Snake Wine

The snake wine is produced by infusing whole snakes, perferably venemous ones, in rice wine or grain alcohol. The drink is considered an important curative and believed to reinvigorate a person according to traditional Chinese medicine.

Later, I had dinner while enjoying the beautiful sunset along the river. Another day filled with amazing impressions…

Most Wanted: Brian Lichtenberg


After my last outfit post, I have received so many questions about the tee I am wearing in it.
Brian Lichtenberg is a Los Angeles based designer who has taken the fashion industry by storm. By incorporating a cheeky sense of humour, he seeks inspiration from high end fashion labels such as Balmain, Gucci and Hermès. And strangely enough, no lawyer is in sight…


The brand’s signature “Homiés South Central” and “Féline Meow” versions are by far one of the hottest pieces out for this season. Be sure to get one today.


LoL, Sandra
