Back to reality – Life after China

Deciding to end an adventure is always hard, probably a lot harder than deciding to quit your job, leave your friends and family and travel in the first place. In those final weeks of any big adventure you go through so many different feelings; fear of what comes next, excitement about seeing friends and family,…

Here’s to 2014
