Traveling this vast country and sharing it all with you!

Foreigner traveling in China by RV

Welcome to CrissCrossChina: A Journey of Freedom and Exploration

We are a Finnish-Chinese family based in vibrant Shanghai, and our passion for travel has taken us across the vast landscapes of China and beyond. Our desire to break free from rigid bus schedules and train timetables led us to embrace a different mode of exploration: the RV/caravan.

Why CrissCrossChina?

The name reflects our mission: to crisscross the diverse landscapes of China, connecting cultures, people, and stories along the way. It may not be the catchiest name, but it resonates with our spirit of adventure.

Thank you for being part of our travel community. Let’s explore together!

Discovering Hidden Paths: Our Journey Across China

In this vast and diverse country, opportunities for exhilarating adventures and delightful discoveries are scattered like precious gems. But how do you unearth them? We’ve taken it upon ourselves to explore every nook and cranny, one step at a time, one trip after another.

Embracing the Open Road

The quiet stretches of road beckoned to us—a canvas waiting for our tire tracks. The decision was clear: we would experience it firsthand. Along the way, intriguing questions surfaced: what essentials are requiredwhere can they be found, and what local regulations apply? The highways of China sprawl before us, inviting us to traverse their lengths. Our collection of knowledge grows, and we’re committed to sharing it with fellow travelers.

大P

Hi, my name is Petri and also known as 大P (Da P=Big P). This is my second time in China and we moved from Finland 2014 for work. Been here for some time and wanted to do something new.

Got a brainstorming and thinking why never seen trailer on the road? Most of my previous travels have been connected to my work round the globe and now ready for free-time trips with my family. Never been really active in social media and regardless not Clint Eastwood in front of the camera or Steven Spielberg behind it. Also to be mentioned not even close to any Shakespeare qualified text. I will try my best to make stories and sharing the information with everyone.

Mother Bear (熊妈妈)

Hi, this is Lanny, a middle-aged lady with a young spirit (at least much younger than her actual age)
Coming home from work for more than 10 years has made me a little lazy in various activities, but deep down, I am still the person who has a lot of dreams, step by step to make it come true.
As I wrote in 9th grade:
I want to read a book that lasts four years,
And chat with people from different continents,
I want to fly over the ocean and play with dolphins.
At this moment, life continues, and the exploration of the world is also continuing,
Sharing our experience is continuing, welcome to follow us

This is where our journeys together started

Short description, needed 888 reasons, 99 roses, 20 unfamiliar witnesses, and an exceptional place to catch her. I was able to bargain from 999 reasons to 888 reasons why I wanted to marry her 🙂

 

Memorable moments from the many journeys in China

Many journeys and even more memories. Seeing the pictures reminds you of the fun, joy and the places.

Camping sites what we have experienced

Pictures of camping sites we visited in the past year by RV or caravan. Most of them have been good but there are some places that need some improvement. For example facilities needs upgraded

 

By vehicle and light hearted, I take to the open road, Healthy, free, the world before me, The long black path before me, leading wherever I choose.
