A native of Birmingham, England, I moved to China in April 2014, following my two great loves – adventure and my Chinese husband-to-be.
My love affair with China started in 2007 when I studied a university module in Mandarin Chinese and led me to spend a year teaching at a Chinese middle school in Nanjing. Following that year, I knew I’d be back and I finally made my dream a reality this year.
R and I married in 2014 and we welcomed baby Z in Spring 2015, which brought new (intercultural) challenges.
I’ve long been a follower of AMWF blogs and (vegan) food blogs, amongst others, but was hesitant about starting a blog of my own. I am by no means a writer, and my English grades weren’t my best. But since starting this blog, I’ve been surprised to find that once I sit down with a topic in mind, I can sit and write over 1,000 words. I guess I have more to say than I thought.
