Golden Week: Exploring Tianjin

This post is slightly late, I know, but I've been super busy ever since Golden Week ended, what with experimenting slightly with lesson plans and trying to find some resources. It's harder than you think, you know! However, Golden Week was really fun! My Golden Week arguably wasn't as exciting as others, but I explored the city around me and I loved every minute of it.

Arriving in Tianjin

It was about 4:45 in the morning when I landed, so Beijing was in complete darkness. Or, rather, it would be if it wasn’t for the thousands of lights that were simply mesmerising as the plane kept declining ready for landing. There was no way my face was coming away from the window. This was the moment I slowly began to fall in love with China and I hadn’t even set foot on the ground yet.

A Taste of Korea: Bulgogi Grill, Leeds

Korean BBQ - it's a dish I've longed to have since the moment I heard about it a good few years ago. I thought I'd have to go to Korea to experience this, but, nope, I was wrong. I could experience it as local as Leeds city centre. At the back of the Merrion Centre just opposite the First Direct Arena is probably my new favourite restaurant - Bulgogi Grill.
