Last chance to join the #ZeviaParty + big travel update
Guess where I am!
If you missed the goings-on of the past week, the #ZeviaParty is still happenin’ for a few more hours; giveaway closes at midnight EST tonight! Check out the original post for details, and join in on the fun for a chance to win a huge rainbow of stevia-sweetened goodness. Aaaaah. Winner to be announced Thursday.
At the time of this post going live, I’m officially on the other side of the world, probably struggling to recover from a severe bout of jetlag after finally, finally (finally!) making it to China. After the unexpected—and baffingly long—extra two months in the US, the past week has been a blur of very excited preparation and very sad goodbyes; it’s an indescribable relief to be writing this from an airplane somewhere over the Pacific Ocean (only 10 1/2 hours left until Shanghai!)
With the transition to a new country, however, come some adjustments to the running of Eat Well. Party Hard., which I wanna let you in on ASAP. The minor change: I may miss a post or two while getting acclimated to my new surroundings, as I’m not sure 1) when wifi will be installed in my apartment or 2) where the nearest wifi-carrying cafe is. But if some radio silence does occur, it’ll only be temporary. Scout’s honor. Now, moving on to the biggest change:
There will be a serious drop in our Facebook and Twitter communication, as both platforms are blocked by the Great Firewall of China.
Yeeeeeeee-ikes. While this lack of ability to communicate via social media causes my #FOMO affliction to flare up horribly, all is not lost! Thanks to the wonders of good ol’ email, we can still keep in close contact when you sign up for the EWPH Newsletter here. I’ll pop into your inbox once a month to say hi, recount the inevitable embarrassing white-girl-clumsily-navigates-Asia stories and, best of all, share exclusive info on upcoming giveaways, contests and—spoiler alert!—free e-books. And it’d be really great if you’d reply with the goings-on in your life, too, pretty please—because I miss ya.
So, to recap:
- #ZeviaParty ends tonight. Enter here to win tasty goodies!
- I’m in China. Radio silence may occasionally occur as I find my bearings and the nearest internet cafe.
- There’s no (legal) Facebook or Twitter here. Sign up for the awesome EWPH monthly newsletter here to get insider info and funny travel stories.
- Stay tuned. Keep eating well. Keep partying hard.
