These are some stories of my travels, of people I meet and places I go, of food I eat and music I hear, of grappling with languages and navigating expat life.
Plus some photos.
In a previous incarnation I was Sarah in Guangzhou, but after leaving her to idle for a while I decided to kill her off once and for all. I left Guangzhou behind a long time ago now and it is time to move on.
I have visited around 96 countries (it depends how you define countries, whether you count China and Hong Kong as separate for example, and how long you have to stay before you’re allowed to count it). I say this in full knowledge that I find people who count their countries incredibly annoying.
These days, I am a big supporter of slow travel and spending longer getting to know a place.
I never interact with trolls. Send me abuse and you will be ignored.
If you want to connect with me on social media:
Facebook: I only friend people with whom I’ve had some meaningful interaction in the real world, however my blog has a page: Sarah’s mad woman blog (I often forget to use it. I like Facebook but it brings in very little engagement).
Instagram: @sarahma516 (where I put my photos)
