Greetings! My name is Dante Gonsalves and I’m currently in my last year at FIU and majoring in Hospitality and Tourism Management. Well, tomorrow is departure day, can’t WAIT for the 14 hour plane ride! So many feelings are going through my head… I’m excited, nervous, and I honestly have no idea what to expect from this study abroad trip. This will be my first time in China, and the fact that I get to live there for my first-time visiting there is so surreal to me.
I will be taking 4 classes at TUC and they will consist of Global Food and Culture, Introduction to Food and Wine Pairing, Wines of the New World, and Hospitality Facilities Management. This will also be my first time living in a dorm with a roommate, so that’s an experience in itself. I’m excited to try all the yummy food and realize that American-Chinese food has nothing on the OG-food from China (yes, this was an intentional subtweet).
Follow along with me on this crazy adventure and stay tuned in all that China has to offer.
Until we chat again (:
