I just wanted to share a few pictures of my recent trip to China. I went to visit my fiance, then boyfriend, Nate who is currently teaching English there. It was so much fun meeting and interacting with his Chinese students. I absolutely loved it! They are so fascinating and were equally as fascinated to meet an American. I felt like a celebrity dealing with the paparazzi the whole time I was there! Except I actually wanted to talk to them, and my cheeks hurt from smiling so much. The whole experience was so eye opening. I LOVE meeting and talking with people from different cultures. It was amazing to go out an experience the culture in real life. I was not among other tourists, so I felt immersed into their culture. I am so proud of Nate for taking this opportunity to jump into a life completely foreign to him and loving on the Chinese people like he has. I don’t know if I’d have the guts to do it alone!
Another amazing part of my trip was my…….ENGAGEMENT! He was so sneeky and clever! To make a long story short, he took me to the Great Wall of China to propose! I also brought the ring over with me without even knowing! His mom stashed it into his checkbook box he asked me to bring over to him. It’s definitely a story to tell our future grandchildren!
Here are some of my favorite pictures from the trip. Of course they don’t do it justice, but I hope you enjoy them!
Enjoy your day!
