The Freedom Travellers take on the Chengdu Challenge!

Ever wondered what it would feel like to be a reality TV star? No? Neither had we! Believe it or not being featured on TV is definitely not one of my life goals. As an introvert, being the focus of attention is not my idea of a fun time. More like my idea of hell!

But that being said, in December 2015 Victoria and I were invited by to come and check out Chengdu, China. Before we realised what we were getting ourselves in to, we said YES! Why not right?! Life’s all about jumping in and embracing the unknown.

It was only once we arrived in China that we realised that we were going to be followed around by a film crew, producer, script writer and a couple of journalists. Wow, you can imagine how surprised we were!

Regardless, we had an amazing time despite the initial shock. If you’re keen to see what our 72 hours as reality tv stars help you can see our adventures around Chengdu China in this awesome video the crew put together.

Pretty cool travel story huh?!
