The first time I left China it was for good. My wife and I worked as teachers at York English for over a year, and it was an incredible time. We travelled, made lifelong friends, had wild new experiences, and lived a type of carefree existence few will have the pleasure of knowing. We were also able to save enough money during this time to fund a journey that would take us around south-east Asia, Italy, Scotland, England, and France.
Deciding what to pack for moving to China was difficult, it has to fit in just two suitcases and a carry-on, it can’t exceed 120lbs total, and I’ll be here at least a year! Some things are obvious – clothes, a camera, a laptop. But how to use that last bit of spare space in the suitcase wisely? What to pack when moving to China – these are the top 10 things I’m glad I decided to bring!
Hi, I’m Eric from Tucson, Arizona. I live in Washington, DC and next month I will begin work as a strategic research consultant for Education Advisory Board, a professional services firm serving colleges and universities.
Hello. I am called Andrea. I have also been called “auntie,” “sister,” “daughter,” “friend,” and other things that I just can’t mention in this blog. I originate from New Hampshire, the United States. I have lived in Costa Rica and now in China, as have I travelled to the Dominican Republic, Chile, and most recently, Thailand, Nepal, Vietnam, and Canada. My thirst for travel is never quenched. The more I travel, the more I want to travel! It is a sentiment that, if you are reading this blog, you probably have in common with me.
