So, I thought it was high time I explained why I suddenly took a three week break from blogging! I was on holiday :3 I went all the way to Xi'an, in China, and loved every moment! Initially I was very nervous because I was 15 and flying all the way over there... ALONE. But it worked out perfectly fine in the end. I would love to share a lot of pictures with you, but because of internet safety reasons concerning the people I was with, I only have a few!
A picture of the hands and names of the friends I made :)
It was a great trip because I got to go to the city center and got to talk to the locals, which was awesome. That way we got a good taste of culture and got to see the lifestyle of people here. It was nice to know strangers were curious about us and willing to take the time out of our day to show us China at heart :)
I did some awesome things I didn't expect to do, like have my first full body massage (super relaxing), see the terracotta warriors (super old and super interesting! Especially the historical story behind their making.) and went to a Muslim Market where I learnt how to bargain.
I met some awesome people and formed really close friends that I definitely want to keep in contact with! They helped me know what to buy and what not, what foods to try and of course, taught me how to use chopsticks ^^ I have to say, food wise, China has the best Fanta (the flavours!), milk, dumplings and burgers ever.
I would go again in the blink of an eye if I could!
Picture time :D
The food was amazing!
Sometimes there were strange flavours of ice cream. This one is mayonnaise, beans and then peas. I didn't try this one...
Turntable meals are fun!
We were staying in dorms on campus. It was absolutely beautiful with the mountains in the distance.
This is the beginning of the Muslim Market. It gets busier :)
