Meeting someone for the first time can be so scary, especially if you are taking a huge leap of faith in hopes that the both of you will have something to bond about with. Nervous, tired, and a bit wary of each other first we quickly found that we had more in common then we originally thought. Learning about each other slowly was so interesting, fun, and adventerous. Soon enough we found ourselves laughing, sharing music, and then talking about similar hobbies together. Everyone let me introduce you to my friend Jing, she is from Taiwan and she has left me with some of the best memories of my life. I hosted her for one night and two days and the bond is pretty strong now; we warmed up to each other quickly and both agreed that it felt like we had known each other longer then two days. She was a wonderful guest and I was lucky to have met her; our gifts exchanged were simple but the meaning behind them was and is strong. (A picture for a picture) The sad thing is that I can't really express how much I am truly grateful that she allowed me to host her, or how I am so happy that she has encouraged me in so many different ways. It was hard not to smile or laugh with her around, she has brightened my world just a bit more and for that I am so very thankful.
I now have a wanderlust for Taiwan, and for that I hope that one day Jing will show me around.
