I do my best to explore as many aspects of my environment and surroundings as possible. I am fascinated by different cultures and enjoy the adventure associated with observing and learning about other people and places.
Deciding to randomly take a hard-sleeper overnight train (14 hours) from Shanghai to Guilin by myself, just a few hours before the train was scheduled to depart. Ended up being the only westerner in my train car and also got stuck in a middle bunk bed. I did get the strange looks from locals at first (a skill mastered after living there for a few months), but soon they were offering up their assortment of peculiar Chinese snacks with me.
Desperately hoping that someday I will finally develop the "Chocolate Touch." This was one of my favorite books back in second grade, but having the power to instantaneously turn things (of my choosing) into chocolate would be amazing.
Either that, or the baked good, piece of chocolate or ice cream that is usually in hand (in the off-chance that any of these items haven't already found their way into my mouth).
