I have always wanted to go places: discovering food, people, natural and created things. I have traveled to more than 95 countries. For years I dragged my family with me as I sought adventure. Now, often as naught, I go by myself. Staying put is a challenge. I have lived in Canada, the UK, China, France and the USA. I have always written: letters, articles, and diaries. I started blogging when I moved to Beijing, to keep track and keep in touch. Though I’ve left China, I am still exploring, still discovering and still writing. Follow me in uncovering what is through the doorway, on the menu and past the customs official.
