Who else is ready to fly into 2017?! 🎈🗓 ••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••• 2016 was full of cultural experiences and #Qinghai, #China was definitely the most unique destination I visited this year! This region is China's most sparsely populated province – with 1 yak to every person – and is known for its strong Tibetan and Mongol culture. I also shot one of my favorite travel videos there! Check it out! 🇨🇳 http://bit.ly/Qinghai2016 🇨🇳 ••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••• 📷 A massive shoutout to my @GoPro family for their support over the years!
