Please fill the following to be considered for the trip:

Hope to see you in Leizhou!

It was definitely different from my previous China experiences. Staying in an old-style home with limited modern luxuries was definitely an experience worth having, as it allowed me to gain an insight into the lifestyle of people who live in less developed cities. It also made me truly appreciate the conveniences we may take for granted in Australia, such as hot water and sanitary bathrooms.

Meeting all the people there was definitely the highlight for me. They were so nice and supportive and were really interesting too. The students were also a lot of fun.
