Hi everyone! My name is Tanya. I decided to take a gap year mainly to travel, learn French, and practice dance. So far I’ve gone on road trips through the provinces Anhui and Lanzhou in China, and visited Croatia for two weeks after returning to my hometown in Germany. Now I’m headed for a trip through Austria, a month in France for a language immersion, and then another trip through Italy, after which I hope to settle for a bit in Germany to work and go to the dance studio. Towards the end of the year I will be leaving Europe to spend Chinese New Year with my family, and hopefully continue my travels in Asia. I haven’t made specific plans for this yet, and I can’t wait to see where the year will take me!
