Ever since I was a little girl, my father would take me travel in every opportunity. However, it was not like nowadays where one just hop on a flight or an express train. Both the conditions of the traffic and accommodations were rather backward then, but we enjoyed every minute of it.
I remember I was about 7 when my father brought me to Xinjiang during my summer holiday. We were on a bus from Urumqi to Turpan when I first saw the Gobi Desert. I can still feel the shock from the first sight of that view. Under the light of the setting sun, the boundless and desolate desert and the billions of pebbles are like the only thing left in this world. We got off the bus without hesitation and took many beautiful pictures. We then hitched a ride to Turpan. The truck we got on was full of honey melons and the kind driver offered us a few of them, which was an unexpected surprise. Another trip that I like most was the cruise on the Yangtze River and climbing the mountains in Zhangjiajie when I was in the 8th grade.
The travel experience with my father helped made me decide on my career, which is to widen my vision and see this vast, beautiful and amazing world. The thing just went smoothly, and I succeeded in applying for working as a travel consultant in TravelChinaGuide after graduation from the college in 2003. I have been here in this big and warm family for years. Because of my excellent performance, I have been given many opportunities to visit dozens of places in China, including Beijing, Shanghai, Kunming, Yunnan, Xinjiang, Hangzhou, Suzhou, Datong, Yangtze River, etc. I always think that I’m a lucky person, as not so many people can do what they love for a living, but I do and I am also able to offer some help others through my work.
For me, work is completely a kind of enjoyment. When planning a trip for our customers, or answering their questions, or meeting them when they are in Xi’an, I am very happy for I feel like helping them fulfilling their travel dreams. It is indeed my honor to introduce my beloved country to the world. Travel is my life-time favor, and I hope some day I can leave my footprints at every corner of the earth.
