Breaking La Barrier isn’t just about traveling. It’s about truly experiencing, learning, and understanding a different culture, its people, and its traditions. Deep, huh? There are 7 billion people living on the same planet, and yet, barriers prevent us from communicating with one another.
In January, I traveled to China to begin my project. Here, I teach English as a second language, having only one option: Adapt to a new way of life full of unique traditions.
Nah. I’m the worst at learning Mandarin, and very little of the Chinese population speaks English.
So Breaking la Barrier is a project to see how I adapt to a culture completely different from my own. How will I get around? How will I communicate? More importantly, how am I going to order food!?
That’s for me to figure out. And it’ll all be documented here on my travel blog.
Join me as I break a barrier in order to learn and understand a new part of the world. Are we more similar than different? Are any of the stereotypes true?
China is just the beginning.
