Hi I’m Lachlan one of the many students going to China this year. I’m really into sport and I barrack for Collingwood. My hobbies are riding with friends on weekends, going to EBT training and kicking the footy with my dad after school.

Why did you want to be a part of the Team China Group?

Because I’ve never been overseas and I thought this would be a perfect chance to finally go.

What are you most looking forward to in China?

I’m really looking forward to being the first group to visit the great wall and I especially can’t wait to try the different food.

Have you been overseas before?

No but I can’t wait.

What are you nervous about?

I’m nerves for spending the first night there because I’ve slept in another state but not another country.

What new things do you want to try in China?

I can’t wait to try the Chinese food that you can’t get here and try the food that we can get here but taste completely different.

    Morning Hope, it’s very cold and wet in Bendigo so it’s going to be a bit of a different climate shock for you travellers.
    I even had to buy Jack and Paris a doggy jacket each because they were shivering.
    Enjoy your last day in China and don’t forget to buy yourself heaps of presses.
    x Mum, Dad, Cody, Karly & puppies (woof woof).
