Two semesters, 10 months and thousands of classes later, yesterday I finished teaching at my school in China. Having taught well over 1,200 students in my time at Shishijiaxing Foreign Language School, I have learnt so much about myself as a teacher and about the work ethic of students in China. It has been such an honour to watch them grow in confidence and ability since February this year, and I am so proud of myself for helping make that happen.

Last week I rather spontaneously decided I wanted to go on a trip to Xi’an with a couple of friends (Usama from Bangladesh and Chelsea from America) who invited me to come along with them. It was a very last-minute trip that normally I would have shied away from, but the confidence I have gained since coming to China made the idea of a small unexpected trip sound like a delight rather than a nightmare! It was also my first official time using the famous high-speed train in China. The journey from Chengdu to Xi’an was 268 RMB (£28) each way taking about 4 hours there and back. 

Only stayed in Xi’an for 2 days but wanted to share some photos and information of our trip. Enjoy!
