Liz and I woke up in our hotel room and stumbled down for breakfast still in our pajamas where we stuffed ourselves, took some extra biscuits for the train ride today and then headed back to bed for an hour. We showered, repacked our bags and were downstairs to meet the others by 11.30am. We chilled in the lobby of the hotel for an hour (giving me a great chance to get some blogs uploaded!) before our guide came to escort us to the train station, a pointless task for the station was literally 3 minutes away and we would have found it ourselves. Before we knew it it was time to board our train and we are currently chilling on it, reading, blogging, playing cards and dozing. This will literally be the way it goes until around 1pm tomorrow when we finally arrive in Shanghai, our last stop of the tour, it has gone very quickly!
I have just finished a years MSc in Security Sector Management and am off on a months trip to China before beginning a new job. Before that I have undertaken a BA Hons in Law and Criminology and have spent a year travelling and volunteering in between studies.
I have been blessed to have visited some amazing places and my personal highlights include volunteering in an orphanage in South Africa, motorbiking through the Central Highlands of Vietnam, hiking Cradle Mountain in Tasmania and watching the sunrise on a deserted island on my 22nd birthday.... full info
