Most Enchanting Travel
My story is more of a funny story than an enchanting story. When I was 12, I was in Beijing with my family. We were flying kites in Tiananmen Square which is a very popular activity there. At one point, a long line of soldiers marched out of the gates and at that moment, a gust of wind pushed my kite in their direction, falling onto the line of soldiers and making them fall into each other. The very disgruntled leader came over, handed me the kite and walked away. That was quite an interesting afternoon!
I adore sharing my travel experiences with others and I look forward to assisting you during your trip! I was 10 years old when I moved overseas for the first time, and I think it definitely changed my perspective on the world. I think that when you travel, it is definitely important to keep an open mind and be aware of cultural differences.
