I’ve suddenly realised I only have 6 weeks left of studying! Time is flying by at an amazing rate! When I was in Ireland my Dad would say to me ‘When you get to my age, a week just feels like one day’. And the more I get older, the more this is starting to apply to me.
So anyway, we have two months of holiday until we start back to our next semester in September… and we’ve no idea what are plans are.
As my fiancés sister and boyfriend were coming to China for one month, this time last year we were busy planning our travels around China. So we knew we would be busy during the summer… but for this coming one, we really have no plans.
My fiancé may have a job opportunity during the summer, so we may travel to a city nearby for work… but pretty much that’s it. With our lack of income, we can’t exactly plan on doing anything too exciting or expensive!
I’d have liked to have gone home for the holidays, but it’s just too expensive. So I guess we are stuck in Chengdu for a while! Maybe when we get jobs we might visit a city in China…Qingdao perhaps? My private Chinese teacher is from there so I’d like to visit it, plus it’s supposed to be a nice city!
But anyway, the weather here has been fantastic, so both of us don’t mind staying here for a bit!
