My Adventure China began in 2010 and has already led me through quite a few provinces and regions on Mainland China and Taiwan. But it also takes place in Canada where I’ve met many good friends within the Chinese community.

This blog tells our stories, randomly picked. Join us, meet the people, see some sights, and pick up a few bits and pieces about Chinese culture and life style.

In just a few days I’ll head out on another China adventure with first stops in Qingdao and Harbin. Frequent updates will be on the new page China 2017.
