Please you us about some of your most enjoyable moments of the trip?

I went for dinner with my host family's father who had friends in very high places in the government of Hangzhou, and dined with the head of medicine!

Which were the highlights of the lessons, cultural excursions and outdoor activities?

lesson highlight was the end show that we had produced based on the 3 little pigs. It was so emotional and fullfilling as the kids had spent so much energy and time on learning their lines.

cultural excursion would be seeing the Hangzhou light show

outdoor activities would be rafting in Yangshuo

How would you say the overall experience has benefited you?

It made me realise what a wonderful and beautiful country China is. It tends to get quite a negative reputation in the news but this experience has encouraged me to travel back to China as soon as I can

What was the best thing about your experience in China?

To be able to say "Summer 2017 was the best summer of my life" because I met some AMAZING people, saw some of the most beautiful scenery and challenged myself so much.

Would you recommend participating to a friend and if so why?

Yes because it has made me see the importance of really travelling and not just going on holiday
