Tibet Trip part 2

We were walking out the station and searching for one particular thing: a guy holding up a sign with Annie’s name on it. It did not take long to find him and it also did not take long before we got our first ‘souvenir’ from Tibet: a white scarf. It apparently is the warmest way of welcoming someone new into Tibet. With scarves around our neck, we walked to our van that will bring us to all our destinations for the next 4 days. We went to our hotel, not to rest, but just to put down our luggage and immediately go to our first place of interest, because resting is for the weak! We went to the Jokhang Temple, which is the most important temple for Tibetans, but unfortunately, due to the fact that it was National Holiday, the temple was closed. In the end we stayed around in the surrounding area of the temple and had our first look of Lhasa.

Tibet Trip part 1: the train trip

Hey everyone!
It has been while! Some of you probably thought that I already stopped blogging on BlogSpot, and that is true in some sense; I was considering stopping blogging here and continuing on Youtube only, because maintaining a Youtube blog and a BlogSpot blog is too time consuming. I kept that mindset until today when I came back from Tibet. Yes, I just came back from a 10-day trip in Tibet with (of which 6 days is traveling only) with 4 classmates of mine: Annie, Benita, Mickey and Sander. I experienced many things during my trip to Tibet, and it is not possible to include everything in just one video. Thus I have decided to write a blog about it!
