Please don't read any further if you are bored with my rantings. I wouldn't. Actually, I have deleted the part of this post that revolved around my rantings. Enough already!
I am off to China on Thursday. This is with www.i-to-i.com and their Meaningful Travel.
I have long wanted to go on a Voluntary Services Overseas break, but cannot consider leaving home for a year or so, as Mr T is not interested in such goings on at all. Then, I happened accross i-to-i which sparked off an idea for my 50th birthday that happened in July. I think this is a great idea, and much better than a party. So, I am off to the Chinas, to celebrate my birthday, but with a twist.
Anyway, Mr T is not going, and I shall be accompanied by my great friend Miss Bev. And, we are going to teach English as a foreign language to primary school children and their teachers, in Xi'an, for three whole weeks. Which, as we are not teachers, will be, well, interesting! We will, however, get our weekends off so intend to view the Terracotta Army (I know, we could have saved our pennies and buggered orf to Londinium to visit them, but heck) and will go and see the Great Wall, which is on the telly tonight but I've lost the plot.
I shall, dear reader, be keeping those at home and abroad informed of my travels via my Travel Blog! here at: http://my.i-to-i.com/karenphilpott/blog/ So, do keep in touch. I will be back at the end of October. Do behave in my absence.
love, kaz xx
