We are Martina and Chris, two University students of Chinese and Spanish with translation and interpreting studies. As you probably understood form the title, we are two students ready to travel the world on our study abroad year. At the moment we are on our Erasmus in Spain and we are going to travel to Shanghai in January. Everything great so far, we planned to go to Shanghai, our dream is actually coming true, but there is only one major thing stopping us…our funds. As we are going to study in China, Erasmus will not cover our stay there, nor help us with any expenses. Our family have helped all they can for our stay here in Spain but we don’t think we can make the expenses for China, and this would mean saying goodbye to our dream. With your help we are hoping to fund at least our travel expenses and some of our stay in Shanghai for the second semester in ECNU University.
Whoever has had the incredible experience of travelling to China will know the incredible amount of money that not only has to be put towards the flight but also the visas, travel expenses, vaccinations and general preparation for the stay. There are a lot of people that have had the incredible opportunity to travel the world and we hope that we do not have to give up on our dream because of this.
Any little help will make a big difference for us. We appreciate the fact that you have read this big chunky paragraph and any help you may be able to offer us.
Thank you so much again
Martina and Chris :)
