I’m a 20-something woman, born and raised in Northern Michigan (my heart, my home), who graduated in 2009 from the University of Michigan and has very little traveling under her belt. I’ve walked through Chicago and Philadelphia, I’ve poked around Washington, D.C. pretty extensively, I’ve stayed a single night in a Baltimore hostel, and spent a weekend in Stratford, Ontario, Canada to see a performance of Shakespeare’s The Tempest. I’ve been to the Gulf of Mexico on one side of Florida, and the Atlantic on the other. I’ve spent six weeks in Raymond, Maine, visiting Acadia National Park and climbing Mt. Washington and Chocorua in the process.
I have never left North America. I have certainly never been to China. But on August 2, 2010, after a fourteen hour flight and six hours of layovers, that’s going to change!
And I’m going to tell you all about it.
