At the end of May, I travelled from Regina, Saskatchewan to Shanghai, China with a group of friends. Our first day in Shanghai was exhilarating!

I saw a young girl painting with water on the path and watching it fade away. It was beautiful and made my heart happy.

Finally, one day while perusing flight deals we decided to just go for it. The plan was to travel to Paris first, London second and take the train back and forth.
