Site update: Wuxi city guide

May 17, 2009

I’ve just added a city guide to Wuxi over on the right there under pages. Please click the image below and feel free to have a read and hopefully one day, even visit! Wuxi was our base of operations for some 8 months. It was a great little place to explore and certainly brimming with western comforts.

A little Beijing

March 8, 2009

I recently purchased a new concept in travel guides from the little Beijing blog.  I think the idea of picking a random section of city to explore, rather than simply visiting sites to tick them off a list, is a much more interesting way to travel, opening you up to places you wouldn’t normally see in a guide book. 


The idea is simple – a collection of postcards of sites and streets around Beijing, with maps and directions printed on the back.  You can select by area (from the provided map) or simply chose a random selection and set off!  Scrawl your ideas, thoughts or new discoveries on the back and either keep them or mail them home so you have a unique set of memories of your travels.
