Hey guys this post today is gonna be about me going back to China where before I was in Egypt I lived there for six months as I’ve said in other posts Egypt was a place that really felt like home for me, and it was difficult to leave. But at the same time I did know that I wanted to go back. So I went back to China just in time to spend holidays there one of the first things that I did when I got back to China was meet up with my good friend poppy from where’s poppy that you guys all probably know already with me is poppy where’s poppy she’s here we actually went, and posted this crazy Christmas post together I was drinks are not allowed to take the camera at one point we were even crazily running just sprinting across this mall to get some of the shop that she wanted for her post this is so much fun of coming together again yeah this is really cool.

So glad to be back way to be here for Christmas yeah timing I found myself telling some people that I had gone back home to China. But that kind of got me thinking I don’t necessarily feel like China feels like home. But at the same time it’s kind of the closest thing to a home that I have right now or is it we are walking around bison show tonight which is kind of funny. Because it’s one of the first places that we explored in China ever when we first got here hey circle of life name now I kind of revisiting some old spots that we used to go a lot when we first moved here now we’re used to the crowd remember how crazy it was we first got here we do we’ve abandoned our plan to go to the other bar apparently, and Livio suddenly knows another while that we should go to instead more elegant just randomly went, and got a snack, and it is yes you always do that live you how are you live I am inspired by the city lights Livio just got the coolest shot of me if john lives yeah it was quite amazing wasn’t it my gosh you cannot do a British driver says he likes to bring felicity it sounds funny. Because Lydia lives in London, and yet he cannot do a British accent oh my goo bar but. So in order to get to the whiskey bar we need to sneak into a building that we don’t live in, and then sneak up on the intonation look at this. So epic Wow the doors open we don’t quite think this way my lady don’t never ever find the right words there’s no way this is real life there’s no telling you’re the right girl.
So I can only say that it feels right when I was growing up my family moved around a lot literally dozens of times, and I can’t really think of anywhere that I lived as a kid that I would really feel like he’s home, and now that I’ve been traveling for over two years that sense of the word home, and what it means to me have gotten even more complicated when I first started traveling I was traveling super fast new country a new continent a new city every few days I wanted to see everything. But gradually as I traveled I did start traveling slower, and slower, and I would like to spend at least a month in most of the places that I say I think that I was searching for the meaning of that word for me oh I thought a lot about it, and I think that for me the meaning of the word home doesn’t necessarily have to be this tangible place the people in my life make up so much of the word home to me that I think I would classify home as more related to people, and friendships than I would to actionable places for now I think that home is being with the people that I love somebody’s going by on the street I don’t know what they’re doing sorry I don’t know what they’re talking about out there. But it’s so loud hurry now another thing that’s kind of a bit more trivial. But I feel like still does have a part to play in this topic is that when you don’t have any set home you cannot buy things, and I am NOT a materialistic person I don’t really care about stuff so much I believe in collecting experiences over things for sure. But at the same time even I still do sometimes want to be able to have more than just a few outfits to choose from if you know what I mean I travel extremely light that it that’s my name um. So I only travel out of a 30 liter backpack that is it having a bit of a base in China having an apartment there has kind of changed the way that I look at travel. Because it is nice to have a place to go back to, and just familiar things that you like that you’ve picked out, I’m here with my friend Cassie hi you’re actually one of the first people that I’ve met in Jen jet did not know that how long have you lived in Jinja who today is actually my third anniversary of moving the ship in three years actually whoa.
