After 13 years in South East Asia, 2 in Phuket and 11 in Hanoi, my husband and I decided to move to Beijing. We arrived in July 2016 and I took the opportunity to be home with our daughter, who was a year old when we arrived. It has been a real joy having this time together. I also spent time working on a post graduate certificate in Educational Leadership through the University of Leicester and doing supply teaching at Keystone and BSB, Shunyi.
I really enjoy the diversity of our lifestyle and work environment, and feel privileged to have had many opportunities to experience this awe-inspiring world we are a part of. Engaging with different people is what I love most about living abroad, and I am pleased to now be in China, where many wondrous explorations await.
Alongside exploring and travelling, I love hiking, camping, and… food! I get very excited about good food, new food, obscure food, all food really! Going out to try something different, finding a hidden eatery or revisiting a favourite restaurant brings great delight.
