Zhuhai, making spring plans, surprisingly cold and more

It’s been silent here for far to long now so it’s time for a new post! I have far to much to write about but I’ll do my best to write about it! It’s been a time of job offers, disappointments, decisions, thinking, new decisions and some Chinese adventures. My plan when I came here […]

My adventurous trip to Shanghai
