A recap of where I’ve been in 2012
This post comes from an idea by Sam over at Totally Sam’s World, thanks Sam!
It’s a look back at all the places you’ve visited over the past 12 months. Whilst mine is not the most exciting list, I visited some new places, and the best, December, is still yet to come! So a run down of what I’ve been up to:
January – I worked pretty solidly during January so no time for travel. I was dog sitting over Spring Festival (which was in January this year) so enjoyed the time just sitting doing nothing but watch movies!
February – A busy month. After working hard, I got to travel hard. I first visited a friend’s hometown in Inner Mongolia called Wu Yuan, then went to Xi’an and Beijing for a second time. I finally ended the month in Zhangzhou, my home for the next 6 months (although soon after it became the next 18 months!)
March – Booked my tickets for my holiday in the UK in August!
April – I visited Xiamen and bought my tickets to New Zealand for December! So exciting – dream come true. Also went to some hotsprings – amazing!
May – Visited another friend’s hometown in Fujian, called Jiufeng and drank lots and lots of tea.
July – HOME TIME!
August – Back from HOME TIME!
September – Back to school. Oh, and I went to Vietnam to visit Steph – almost forgot about this!
October – Went to Xiamen for my birthday.
November – Nothing, although posted my Christmas cards home!
December – A busy month. I will be heading to Dalian for a meeting, and then, finally, after many years of wishing and waiting, I will head to New Zealand for Christmas and New Year! My excitement cannot be contained. You shall be receiving many posts on New Zealand in the latter stages of 2012 and the beginning of 2013.
Hopefully this time next year I will have a similar post for 2013 travel, although written from New Zealand – that’s the plan anyway!
