Big news fellow Wanderlust Explorers. We are Shanghai bound coming February 14th. In our minds nothing says Happy Valentine’s Day more than a flight to Shanghai, China.
As you can probably imagine, we’ve been dying to get back to international travel. The “Travel Bug” has never left, so we jumped at the chance for Jen to volunteer teach nursing for 3 months at a university in the bustling city of Shanghai. After many emails back and forth with the program coordinator, Jen accepted after it was established that I could join her. Her payment is her flight, housing, food, and about 300USD per month. I can stay with her but must pay my own flight and for my own food. Not too shabby if you ask me.
We only visited Beijing on our honeymoon in 2013, so we are excited to explore more of China. I previously visited Shanghai in 2001 with my mother Nancy. We really only stuck to the city and I remember the Old Town area and the Bund (riverfront area.)
So with that, Happy New Year, 2015. Look for more adventures soon!
