I’m sat in the lobby of the same hostel I stayed in on my last visit to Bangkok a few weeks before. Back then I didn’t have the foundations fully constructed before a huge earthquake struck and shattered my head to pieces. I had an idea that damage was coming and that’s why I was… Continue reading 4.1.2020

As the mini bus headed south on the twisty turny road from Pai to Chiang Mai a subtle smile creeped into the corners of my mouth. I was listening to Ride by Mako Road which reminds me of Max, so maybe that’s why. It had been 2 weeks since we’d in Myanmar and within a… Continue reading 27.12.2019

Writing on 24th November:  Days filled with coffee and nothingness, reading and overthinking, Myanmar perhaps hasn’t been kind to my extroverted self. Whilst I have been able to find some pure and beautiful souls along my way I have just been a little bit bored of pagodas. As someone who has not yet built the… Continue reading 2.12.19

It’s been a week since I departed from the country that defined the past two years of my life. I’m not sure my brain has processed the reality of not working for 8 hours a day 5 days a week with 18 hyper energetic children but, I don’t feel any negativity towards being in a… Continue reading 16.11.19

9.10.19 再见中国

My time in China is swiftly coming to an end (32 days to be exact) and whilst I’m gutted to be leaving behind wonderful friends, kids and teacher, I am so fucking ready to get out.  The fact was - and still is - that my first boss fucked me over by sabotaging my application… Continue reading 9.10.19 再见中国

The last time you heard from me (was a while ago now) I told you about Beijing Wave's inaugural event "This Is Not Consent", an event using the topical issue of consent and sexual assault as a means of education. On Monday the 24th we'll be hosting our second event - a screening of the… Continue reading 30.6.19

Vienna 11.2.19

So, now that I'm back in Beijing I thought it best to wipe away the two-week-old dust that has been gathering on my laptop and get to work on relaying my time in Vienna to you. It was so fucking sick. It was one of those weeks where you want to go back and hit… Continue reading Vienna 11.2.19

Monday will be 1 year since my arrival in China. On that day I touched down in my apartment (45 minutes from the city centre) at around 4:30pm with the help of a guy named Hugh. There were 3 other Chinese residents in that place who spoke no English. He took me out to get… Continue reading 29.12.18

It's the last full day of the school term before the little kindergarten beans finish for Chinese New Year and it's been a great one. They're currently recharging their batteries after an energetic morning at the discovery play centre across the road. We tended to poorly animals in the vet hospital; shopped for our groceries… Continue reading 9.2.2018

It's the beginning of my third week at the school, Chinese New Year is just around the corner and you can feel it. Teachers and assistants are tapping their toes whilst glaring at the clock itching for the day to be through so that they can begin their festivities. Beijing is a working city, therefore… Continue reading 5.2.18
