A visitor to a culture that is not my own – learning how to make it home.
My husband and I moved to Shanghai, China, about 18 months ago in order to set up a business. We have always been fascinated by China – her people and her history – so we turned a life-long dream into reality and started on our Chinese adventure. We have faced (and continue to face) many challenges – always trying to turn them into opportunities, but not always succeeding! Most of the people that we have met have been incredibly helpful in helping us adjust and acclimatise to our new and unfamiliar surroundings, but there are days when we have to look beyond some of the daily struggles and re-affirm our decision to embark on this project.
We really love this city, its vibrancy and its “life”. And of course we also love Chinese food – its abundance and variety is amazing.
This blog contains “slices” of our life experiences from our time in China.
