One Amazing Thing I’ve Done
I intended to go to the Great Wall by myself; However, I ended up meeting young Chinese tourists along the way. They were very kind to me, and patient with my Chinese level as they did not speak English. We went together to the wall. When we got there, we were disappointed by the boundaries. So we climbed over a barrier to the 'forbidden' parts. From there, the sights and atmosphere was life-changing.
Teach, Learn, Share
I'm on and off learning Mandarin. I was heavily learning before I went to China, now I'm more relaxed. I'd love to talk about western Culture, Technology & engineering with you. I'd also try my best to speak to you, for as long as I can, in Mandarin.
What I Can Share with Hosts
I can share tales of my humble beginnings here in my home country. As well as dreams of living abroad, and my experiences travelling. I feel that I always have a story to share. I can also perhaps cook something for you, if you'd like. :)
