"Carpe diem" china_bound's Profile

seize the day...

Tu ne quaesieris, scire nefas, quem mihi, quem tibi
finem di dederint, Leuconoe, nec Babylonios
temptaris numeros. ut melius, quidquid erit, pati.
seu pluris hiemes seu tribuit Iuppiter ultimam,
quae nunc oppositis debilitat pumicibus mare
Tyrrhenum: sapias, vina liques et spatio brevi
spem longam reseces. dum loquimur, fugerit invida
aetas: carpe diem quam minimum credula postero.

Back to the motherland

So it looks like I'm heading back to the motherland for a couple of weeks in May - we'll be flying into Shanghai on the 5th and then back out of Shanghai on the 28th.

I'm super excited as this is the first time that I've traveled overseas let alone to a non english speaking country. I'm a bit apprehensive about not being able to speak any Mandarin, especially as I look as though I should be able to. Although I'm hoping to do most of the trip on my own with the group of friends I'm going with, however I'm also looking forward to meeting alot of other travelers along the way.
