Hi guys! I figured I would start an FAQ page to clarify some questions I get a lot!
Where are you from?
I’m from Connecticut, but I currently attend school in Pennsylvania and am only home during the holidays and the summertime.
Where have you traveled?
I’ve traveled throughout China and I lived there, in Dalian, from August 2012 to July 2013. Other than China I’ve been to England, Ireland, The Netherlands, Belgium, Luxembourg, Switzerland, Germany, Canada, Mexico, The Bahamas, Bermuda and Grand Cayman. The US of course too (Alabama, California, Connecticut, Delaware, Florida, Georgia, Kentucky, Maine, Maryland, Massachusetts, Minnesota, New Hampshire, New Jersey, New York, North Carolina, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Rhode Island, South Carolina, Tennessee, Vermont, Virginia, West Virginia)
What do you study in school?
I’m pursuing a major in Chinese Studies with a minor in Religion. This semester I’m writing a thesis on the human rights abuses of North Korean refugees in Northeast China. I plan on going to grad school in the future and studying Asian Studies with an emphasis on China and Korea.
When will you graduate?
How did you get to study abroad in China?
I spent my junior year of college living in China through my school’s study abroad program. Our school uses the BCA Study Abroad program, so I went on their Dalian program. My grades are good and it worked out that the amount I paid for the program I paid through my school, and still received my scholarships, so the finances were not a huge issue. If finances are concerned China is actually a great place to go, because compared to places in Europe China is very very inexpensive. Money goes a long way.
Where would you most like to visit?
Egypt is my number one desired travel destination, I’ve wanted to go there my entire life. Other places high on the list are Brazil, North Korea, South Korea, Morocco, Russia, Japan, Austria, Mongolia, Scotland, etc. I’ll go anywhere.
How many followers do you have?
Not a lot at all, compared to other travel blogs. Somewhere in the X,XXX range.
Nope, sorry. I hate promo games, promo for promo, etc.
