Off to China!

Well, readers, followers and lovers.

I am out for China in less than 24 hours. I have been eating as much American food as possible, cuddled with my cats as much as possible, and I feel ready to leave the country and experience life :D!

So I will keep you up to date with life and funsies!
I will miss you... just a little ;)

PS: I got my visa, but I *HAD* to drive all the way to NYC to apply in emergency with my American passport. Oh life...

15 Days

Wow. 15 Days left.
It is crazy.

A couple weeks ago, my trip to China felt like it was never going to happen, and now it seems so close. I am starting to panic about it.
It is been a dream of mine to visit Eastern Asia since I first started traveling. The culture is so different from everything I have ever experienced, that it fascinates me.
When I met Kevin [The boyfriend], I never thought that he would actually take me to China, or that he would be interested in traveling with me. He is the kind of boy that likes to stay home and play video games.
It was incredible that in just two weeks, we will be exploring Beijing, Shanghai and Hangzhou. I still think this is all a dream, and I am waiting for someone to tell me that this was a cruel prank.

Right now, my biggest worry about my trip isn't the itinerary (how we are getting from A to B) but rather my visa. China has been restricting Visas because of the World Expo. I applied with my French passport to save me a 100$, but it seems that the French government and the Chinese government are fighting.
Therefore, I'm still visa-less.

As you can imagine, with 15 days left, I am kind worried about this.
But, my job keeps me busy enough from thinking about it. If I had a whole day, and you guys wouldn't get bored, I would tell you how angry the company made me the other day.
Unfortunately, I do not have that time and you guys would hate it!
So, i am off... for another day filled with office work!
