Start of Something New
You caught me. I completely and totally titled this post after the song from High School Musical . I've had the idea of this blog post since before I left for China. And now it's finally here. Yes, I've 100% postponed writing about it, because then I'm allo...

China in the Ancient Times
So, I know that I kind of left my last post with a bit of a cliffhanger. Let me reassure y'all right now that all things went well after I got to the Sheraton. I was able to stay there both nights and I was safe throughout my remaining time.  Again, I was r...

If you ever think to yourself, “hey, I think it’ll be rad to
travel to this random city on my own where no one speaks English and try to

Chinese Speaking Lady
You know how we often get asked by others to take a picture of them? I've now gotten used to others asking if they could take a picture WITH me. It still happens on the daily. They then post it on their "Instagram" (not really Instagram; it's called WeChat)...

"I Don't Think We're in [America] Anymore"
