Now, this sounds like just the most fantastic holiday ever, for a pontist so deeply committed as to be practically certifiable.
Eric Sakowski, of the great website highestbridges.com, is organising a three-week trip to China to visit dozens of bridges including the eight highest spans in the world, and many more truly spectacular structures, often in remote parts of the country that Westerners almost never visit.
The tour runs from 5-26 August 2011, and costs less than US$4,000.
Eric's trip preview really has to be read to be believed, and his advice for anyone else looking to make a similar trip is also well worth reading.
Sadly, the Happy Pontist won't be going.
