Adventures in China: Travel writings along the Yellow River with Rakel Haslund, Monday Nov.5th, 7:00pm at Bookworm

The DCCC hereby welcomes you to an event about the adventures of traveling in China with the author and sinologist, Rakel Haslund-Gjerrild and traveller and vlogger Zhang Xiang.

"Waterways" is the working title of Rakel's current project to chronicle five journeys along five major Chinese rivers. Water is a most fascinating element, both adapting to while transforming the landscape which it traverses. This could also be said about the art of writing travel literature, a literary genre in which the author must follow the flow of the journey while trying to dam and shape the heterogeneous stories of recent and ancient floods, dams and temples, stomach aching and devastating wars, into a clear, flowing narration. Recently Rakel has travelled along the Yellow River from the estuary where the muddy water goushes into the Bohai sea to the source of the river in Qinghai, and next summer Rakel will be heading up the Grand Canal.

We have also invited Chinese traveller and vlogger, Zhang Xiang, from Andersen Traveller ApS. to speak about travelling in China. Zhang has travelled a lot in South China and made vlogs about his adventures. Zhang will also talk about his experience with creating adventures for Chinese tourists in Scandinavia.

在此,DCCC欢迎您与作家兼汉学家Rakel Haslund-Gjerrild一起参与听Rakel讲述中国冒险之旅的活动。"水路"是Rakel近期项目的名称,该项目记录了中国五大主要河流沿线的五次旅行历程。水是最吸引人的元素,虽无形,但能改变它所经过的地貌景观。水也可以说是关于写作旅行文学的灵感。文学作者将各种各样的有关远古与近代的流域,大坝以及寺庙,饥饿以及恶战的故事幻化成为纯净的、生动的讲述。最近,Rakel从有浑浊河水流入渤海的黄河湾河口出发直至青海省的河流源头,而且明年夏天,Rakel将去到大运河。

我们还特别邀请来自Andersen Traveller 公司的中方旅行家和视频博客 张祥先生,讲述他在中国的旅行经历。张祥 多次在中国南部旅行,并且在视频博客上录制了他的冒险经历。张祥将向中国的游客讲述他在北欧的旅行经验
