6.When a hotel reservation didn’t go through, I had to spend the night in a storage room in Yangshuo, China. I slept on a bed with no mattress, tucked in between bottles of Sprite and Coke on one side and ‘clean’ bed linens and towels on the other. 7. I rented an electric scooter to explore the beautiful villages and mountains in the South of China. 8. I ate a turtle. Don’t judge me. 9. I had the most expensive coffee in the world in Shanghai. It is prepared using coffee cherries that have been eaten and partially digested by an Asian cat-like animal called Palm Civet, then harvested from the animal’s poo. 10. I literally stopped breathing while witnessing the most beautiful sunset ever in Penang Island, Malaysia.
