Below is Stella C's entry for the Warm Bodies Prize Pack Giveaway:

"When I went on a trip to China 3 summers ago, I had the silly impression that all of China is warm and humid. So when my mom took us to her hometown, where it happens to have weather similar to the Canadian Fall that I am so accustomed to, I became a shivering duckling. Everything I had packed were short sleeves and skirts since I was so ready to face the rain forest weather of the South, I had to borrow some of my aunts' outfits. So every night, I went to bed dressed like the Michelin Man and it became a joke every single day to my family. We had a great laugh about it.

One day, my grandma came over and she brought her old-school hot water bag. Coming from Canada, I had no idea what is was for. It looked like a water flask used by the Dothraki people used on Game of Thrones. Apparently, you fill it up with hot water and you bring it with you to bed and it's suppose to keep you warm. Now, whenever someone asks me why I love travelling so much, I tell them it's the ability to travel back in time that draws me to it. The fact that some places aren't as developed as ours (granted, there are places in China where there are indeed a crazy amount of technology and advancement, but that's not my point), makes the world an always changing time capsule. It is during one of those trips, thrifting through that time capsule that I discovered my favourite Warm Bodies: a family who lives an ocean away from you but still loves you...oh and of course that hot water bag."
