I  want to offer my tried and tested experience’s during my stay in Hong Kong and Mainland China. Those of you contemplating a visit or seeking employment in Asia would find these experiences a useful guide through my struggles and achievements.



My beginnings in China are somewhat different to many travelers, this was due to significant reasons that catapulted me in the Asia! these factors were:

Work a Grind in UK

a:  I was incredibly bored with my employment as a remote Systems Administrator in London England.

b:  I fell in love with a Chinese National during my stay in the City of Portsmouth in Hampshire. This romantic interlude made me consider the possibilities of going to Asia.  As during a months vacation to meet with my friend’s family, i was energized which allowed me to consider the possibilities that could be beneficial in many ways for my future.


In my opinion a majority of those considering a change in either employment or travelling, i would recommend as a light backpacker with an open mind  you should be ready to embrace alternatives you will undoubtedly encounter traveling in Asia and China
