Expat in Beijing

In August 2010 I moved to China for half a year, planning to come back somewhere in March of 2011. That didn’t happen. I still live and work in China.

I share travel information about China as well as other countries on my website, I give tips on how to find a teaching job, share my thoughts on places I’ve slept and give budget tips.
