I'm in Beijing!
Hey everyone! First of all - I can't believe this is my first post!! 🙆♀
(Also, I'm so happy that this website is finally up! Yaay :'D)
Yesterday evening, I boarded on a plane to fly from Toronto, Canada to Beijing, China where I will be spending most of my next two months! There is so much that I am looking forward to learning, seeing, and doing - and I can't wait to share that with all of you too!
Currently though, it is 2:27am local time, and I am quite a sleep-deprived human right now. I've spent the past little bit getting settled in (I've got a whole hotel room to myself for the next 4 days! It's very nice 😁) and trying to figure out how the internet works here (it's a tad more complicated than back in Toronto, haha). I've realized that in addition to Facebook, Instagram, Snapchat, Google, Youtube and a whole list of social media and websites, the "Great Firewall of China" also blocks Wix - which is what I'm using to create this website! Meaning that despite me hoping to not use VPN and take a break from social media these two months, I actually will need to use it in order to even continue this webpage and blog while I'm here...LOOL That being said, don't fret - this website and blog will continue :) However, I still stand by my decision to use this trip as an opportunity to take some time away from social media. 😌 So still subscribe here, check back, and/or connect with me through email!
I think that's all for now - I am getting up at 6am to start my 4-day tour of the city, so I should get some sleep! :P
Know that I am safe, I am excited, and I wish all of you the best next two months!
Until next time,
