Laying eyes on the Great Wall for the first time was incredible – I’d seen pictures, but nothing prepared me for the sheer size of it. I could see for miles and at some points there wasn’t another soul in sight. It was a really beautiful experience, especially knowing about the Wall’s historic past.
