Yesterday, I had the honor of speaking about my travels to Hong Kong, Mainland China and Taiwan. I was very impressed that so many people were interested in what I had to say - all of the tickets were sold out!
I enjoyed speaking about my own experiences, difficulties and lucky twists of fate - this was probably the first time I enjoyed giving a presentation - because I knew what I was talking about (in contrast to endless presentations during school times...).
This was, because it was my own story. It was me having the opportunity to visit old friends abroad and get to know their culture. It was me hitchhiking through Taiwan and hiking up in the mountains of Yunnan.
And then there was a live audience. I mean as a travel blogger I don’t get to see who reads my posts and which parts they enjoy to read. But now they are sitting in front of me, smiling at me, taking pictures of my pictures and seem to enjoy what I have to say.
This is such a strong feeling and I’m very lucky to have experienced this.
