a personal post: photo challenge - 12

Day 12 - A picture of somewhere you’d love to travel

herbshein, a little town in the bas-rhin area of france
seemingly random, but it's where my family is from and i'm a firm believer that if you don't know where you're from, you can't get where you're going.  my grandfather clearly agrees - he has spent decades writing extensively on our family's history.  i have the books on my shelf to prove it!  he has been to herbshein of course, but i have yet to even leave the country.
of course, if i were already in france, i'd have to hop on down to nice - i've always wanted to go see beautiful nice!
one day, one day . . .

but on a real note, i will be getting my first passport stamp one day veeeerrryyy soon - one day only 5 weeks from now actually!

where am i going, you ask?


yes, it's a 17 hour flight and yes, it will be a very tiring work trip, but it's CHINA!  
my boss was teasing me that i've never left the country, not even canada or mexico, and on my first time out i'm going completely across the world!
but that's me - an all or nothing kind of gal.

5 weeks, the count down begins . . .


  1. O you lucky girl!! I've always wanted to go to China! ha ha Have fun!! :)

  2. i'm pretty scared but also excited! i will definitely post pics and updates here :)

  3. Aw so excited to see them! ha ha.. and for you of course =P
