Chengdu

A Day at the Chengdu Panda Sanctuary, China

I’ve never had a bucket list (partly because I find the whole thing a bit morose), but also because I basically want to do and see everything. However there has been one place that I’ve wanted to visit for so…

Leshan

The Incredible Giant Buddha of Leshan, China

China’s big, isn’t it? I’d never even heard of Leshan before planning this trip, but even this ‘small’ city has a population of almost two million. We drove for over three hours from our base in Chengdu to get there…

Feeling Homesick

When have you felt most homesick? I remember being a new graduate, living (stubbornly) in my uni town, working three jobs to pay for a shite bedsit and wondering what the hell I was doing. I felt really alone and…
