About Me

"Very impressive, this wall you have here!"


I’m a German-Dutch almost 30-year old and after 7 years in Scotland and1 1/2 years of backpacking I’m now living in China with my boyfriend Dave.

Remember how Obelix used to say “The Romans are crazy!”? Well, I say, “China is way more crazy!”

And I’m absolutely loving it!

This blog is a facebook-substitute (we’ve decided  not to get a VPN, and guess what, I’m not missing stalking one bit!) and a way to stay in touch with family and friends but really it’s just a platform for me to muse, ramble and moan about living and playing in Ningbo and China!

    Just discovered your blog; my grandmother was from Ningbo so looking forward to reading more about the place!

      Hi Edna! Welcome and I hope you enjoy my blog. I haven’t covered too much on Ningbo per se but I hope to change that. Have you ever thought about coming to Ningbo/China for a visit?

        Great, I can’t wait to read about it! Yes, I’ve been to Ningbo a couple times and have visited Shanghai about 20 or so times in my life! Also lived there for a year as a child and did a year in Dalian when I was 18 (study abroad). Would love to go back to Ningbo again within the next couple years, though.

        Wow, so you could probably teach me a thing or two!

        I just had a a quick look at your own blog, which looks very interesting! Hope Paris is treating you well (no doubt!) and I look forward to reading your impressions! France is an awesome place to travel and I hope you’re not on a diet, haha!
