About Me

Hi everyone,

My first truly international trip was to Kenya in 1999, and since then I have amassed something like 65 countries and lived all over the world (including off the beaten path places like Afghanistan, the DR Congo, North Korea, Iran, Turkmenistan, etc) . Beijing is where my heart is, I've lived here on and off since 2004 and know the city better than anywhere else. I speak Mandarin (and majored in it) and would be glad to help VT travelers lost in my home town!

I don't have time to really build pages anymore, but I check the forums, especially the China/Asia forums quite regularly.

Welcome to My Travel Pages

Please note, my travel pages are very old and many are now very much outdated. Due to work I really don't have the time to make new ones. BUT, I will be active in the travel forums and if you have any questions with regards to travel, just contact me!

MY SPECIALTY REGIONS:
China (everywhere), North Korea (everywhere), Pakistan (north), Kyrgyzstan (everywhere), Tajikistan (GBAO), Russia (Siberia), Nepal (everywhere), Bhutan (everywhere), India (northeast), Burma (everywhere), Thailand (north) and a few more...

I speak English, Mandarin, Portuguese, Spanish, and French decently fluently and can somewhat speak/understand Italian, Hindi-Urdu and Cantonese. Feel free to communicate with me in any of those languages, although ill be much better with the first five!
