Hi hello! My name is Alina. If you’ve seen my blog before, you’ll know that I started this guy when I moved to Beijing for a summer in 2013. That summer turned into 8 spectacular months, during which I got to do really cool things like write for a magazine, work in a hotel, eat dumplings every day, and make friends from around the world. Of course, I eventually had to leave to do some practical things (i.e. make some money and finish university), but I still carry with me the lessons I learned in adventure, independence and spontaneity.

However, since I am no longer living as an expat in China, the nature of my blog posts nowadays are a bit different. Today, I’m writing with less of an update-family-and-friends-on-life agenda, and more of a here-are-some-things-I-like-to-do agenda (which, really, means there is no agenda). So you might read a bit about my travels, or a bit about my baking excursions, or a bit about my photography, or a bit about nothing in particular. I’m in that awkward phase of life (thankfully this one doesn’t involve braces and bad bangs ) where I’m trying to figure out how exactly to get my foot into the door of adulthood. Thanks for joining me on my journey(s).

    We’re thinking about you! I’ve enjoyed reading your blog just now.
    Took Mr Darcy for a walk this morning, and stopped off at your moms on the way home. She was happy that you have arrived safely, and are starting to settle in. Phew! What a relief. Hope it all goes well.
    Much love,

  2. Great blog! Love all the photos. Will keep track of your treks.
