My husband and I love to travel and experience other cultures. We have been learning Mandarin Chinese since January 2008 and love every minute of it! We are volunteer ministers with our local Mandarin language congregation and have found this has expanded our horizons greatly. Mandarin is truly a worldwide language.
We like to experience life as a local wherever we travel - shopping at markets, exploring the neighbourhood, getting to know the area residents, learning a few useful phrases in the local language, etc. It's always an adventure!
