My Travel Story

by: Caitlin Reber Start Date: Jun 27, 2016 - End Date: Dec 26, 2016
 We are so excited to be going to Weihai, the same city that I went to and fell in love with five years ago. It has been my dream ever since to go back with my spouse. We had wanted to go right after we got married but ended up putting it on hold, and I thought we had missed our chance.
Forrest and I actually met because I went to China. When I got back from China the first time, I signed up at Dixie College for the Chinese class because I had loved my experience so much. Forrest signed up for the Chinese class because he was getting ready to go to China to teach English for the semester. 

 Now on this trip we are planning to really perfect our Chinese language skills, and look for future business opportunities as well. We are so excited to be participating in a program where we will get to teach English to young children.

  We are volunteers, we will not make any money while we are there. And the teachers are required to bring their own supplies and prizes to use for the kids.  Donations will go to some of our expenses, to teaching supplies  like colored paper, glue sticks, markers etc. , and to buying little prizes like small toys that the kids earn while they progress in class. 

 Forrest and I love Asia and we hope to return many more times, any donations for this trip are greatly appreciated.
