Germany Meets China – Beijing Oktoberfest

Who would have thought that I’d celebrate two Oktoberfests in a row?! Last year, my bestie Jon and I went to the real thing in Munich, Germany and had crazy amounts of fun. So you can imagine how excited I was to find out that Beijing was hosting its very own Oktoberfest this year. With […]

China Day 24 – Climbing The Great Wall

This weekend I finally visited China’s Great Wall – let me tell you, it did not disappoint. I can’t describe how inspiring is it to visit something so well-known and that’s over 1,000 years old.

Conversations With Strangers

Strangers. They’re everywhere! As a child we’re told “don’t talk to strangers.” But at a certain age apparently that all changes. People are talking to me all over the place!
