The most famous and crowded, but picture-perfect, stretch of the Wall.

Eight hikes that will transform your trip into an unforgettable adventure.


The Great Wall (Changcheng), one of the most iconic monuments on earth, stands as an awe-inspiring symbol of the grandeur of China’s ancient history. Dating back 2000-odd years, the Wall – or to be more accurate, Walls, for it has never been one continuous structure – snakes its way from the border with North Korea in the east to Lop Nur in the far western province of Xinjiang. Stretching for an estimated 8851km, it meanders its way through 17 provinces, principalities and autonomous regions. But nowhere is better than Beijing for mounting your assault of this most famous of bastions.

Camp Nou, Pedralbes & Sarrià

Lonely Planet Lonely Planet ePub

The Camp Nou, home of FC Barcelona, is one of the greatest sporting temples on earth and a touchstone of Catalan identity. Up the hill to the north, village-like Sarrià belongs to a very different Barcelona. It’s a refined, upmarket barrio (neighbourhood) that bears little resemblance to the touristy downtown area. Nearby Pedralbes is similar, and home to some fine museums.

Do you recognize this island retreat?

Andrew Vietze Down East Books ePub

Not every Maine summer home has its own protective, nonprofit organization to look after it. That’s your first hint that this was the house of a notable Mainer. The man who purchased this midcoast island in 1881 was one of the most famous people to graduate from Bowdoin College, a school his name will always be associated with. Though his travels took him away from it more than he liked, our hero always relished returning to this seventeen-acre island in the Brunswick area. He first saw the green isle when he was a schoolboy on a tour of Casco Bay, and ever after he had a restless determination to own it. When he was able to do so, he paid $500 for his own little piece of paradise, and he soon began to remake it to fit his vision. The result of his efforts is dazzling, in a classic old Maine cottage sort of way. Home and Garden Television thought enough of the place to showcase it in a special episode. It’s the kind of summer home any Mainer would want, with five gabled bedrooms upstairs, glassed-in porches to take in the vistas, a three-sided fireplace, porthole windows, and a study where our man could sit with a 270-degree view of the sea. The Bowdoin alumn spent many a happy day here after making his name — in a controversial struggle against epic odds — and forcing his way into the annals of world history. Upon the death of his wife, the family donated their beloved summer place to the state, and it’s now a historic site and open to the public for tours. The interior is a time capsule, preserved as the military hero might have left it, and pleasant trails await explorers on the island itself. Local tour boats run trips through Labor Day. Turn to page 100 to learn its location.

28 Impact Analysis

Cox Geof HRD Press PDF


Impact Analysis


This activity discovers what impact a situation has on people.


This activity would typically be used in the initial stages of a problem-solving process to help define the problem itself. Often, many situations and issues are not properly stated and thus the problem-solving techniques do not work effectively.


To discover how a situation affects the people concerned

Trainer Guidance

In Impact Analysis, individuals who are affected by a situation relate their own personal experiences in relation to this problem and then compare the common points and differences. One of the main pitfalls in a session is that the stories can be too general; you should therefore be prepared to extract detailed information.


60 minutes




Flipchart or black/white board



1. Assemble a group of people who are affected by the situation, issue, or problem under consideration.

2. Ask the group members to describe, in as specific terms as possible, the impact of the current situation on themselves and others.
