The Shanghai Monthly #6

The Shanghai Monthly #6

I resumed peering in and around Shanghai via tourist features whether it was ancient cities or world heritage sites. The Camden of China came to life in the form of Tianzifang, small walking alleys selling anything and everything unique, international eateries and had the added bonus of excluding the drag of the hustlers, trash and crowds. I feel i

Little Bo Peeps Chapter 3 Shanghainese Life

Part 3 – Shanghainese life 22nd October Onwards. For this this next part I thought I'd focus on teaching and the Shanghainese life. And to begin, just as easy it is to gain work as is it to produce a demonstration class for parents in the hope of opening more classes. And who did they choose to do this mammoth task? Mutton over here. After just 2
The Shanghai Post #7

The Shanghai Post #7

I could wonder where the last few months have gone seeing as they have flown by but they’ve been spent at restaurants, work, shopping and nights out, so I have to say well spent! Partying on my behalf for Chinese New Year was minimal but as for the residents they are certainly not light on the firework front, a week of constant fireworks meant th
The Adventures of Peeps

The Adventures of Peeps

It all started on 18th January and ended on the 17th February. During this time I managed to take: · 27 taxis for the total of 14½ hours · 26 buses 35½ hours · 6 flights 19 hours · 4 metros 5½ hours · 3 trains 26 hours · 2 ferries 30 minuets · 1 gondola 30 minuets and · 2 harassments My total travel time was 101½ hours and I covered a d
Destination: Africa

Destination: Africa

Kenya - The Big Five Petrified and excited, not sure which was exceeding the other, I flew into Nairobi, Kenya's capital. Coming from china, a country that builds up the cities excessively and leaves the country alone I expected the same from Africa. How naive. The land continued without traces of living areas and the more we descended, the more I
Oh Mother Russia

Oh Mother Russia

Mother Russia; the land at the top of earth towering the modest continent of Asia. A country which most recognise but limit to Moscow and, sometimes, St Petersburg in an unfair literal cold assumption. My affair began in East Siberia, middle Russia, and lasted an exhausting month. Perhaps I was a little rusty or underestimated the task beneath me.
Destination: Africa Part 2

Destination: Africa Part 2

Tanzania To make my way through Africa overland, I had a group tour to make things a little simpler for the 24-year old white skined female that I am. My South African friends warned me well away from solo travelling down the east coast. My group would be another 5 travellers, young and old, and I was more than happy with the selection. From a 20-y
On the Silk Road - XinJiang and me

On the Silk Road - XinJiang and me

A 5 hour flight over to the far west enabled a short cut over to one of the most famous of paths, the Silk Road, and like most travellers I don’t have the 26 continuous years Marco Polo had to do a thorough completion. I have to say I was a little disappointed when boarding my flight, the multi cultures I was promised was severely lacking in sigh
The Shanghai Monthly #5

The Shanghai Monthly #5

I realised how hard it has been this month to live over here. I calculated that by travelling here I would be accustomed to the way of life but as it turns out, work, apartments and life have turned into a new division. It is tiring getting sneezed at frequently and this is one of abundant features of this alienated country. I was asked by the owne
Little Bo Peeps Stage 4

Little Bo Peeps Stage 4

Shanghai continued with the undoubted persistence of a Chinese life and surly one of dislike to a light-heartened vegetarian. It was Saturday night so Steffi (my German roommate) and I headed for dinner to see a live meat feast menu. I think the Chinese like to make sure you know what you’re eating and of course in this country, by eating certain
