Hi I’m Nicola!

My husband Amaury and I moved to Guangzhou, China in June 2016. This blog follows our travels, day-to-day adventures, and adjustments to China and ex-pat life along with various off-topic asides.

Born in the UK, raised in California, educated in France, Spain, Italy, and Washington D.C., and with family in New Zealand, I am no stranger to international moves and love to tell travel stories.

I hold a Masters in International Relations and International Economics and have expertise in research, public policy, data analysis, business intelligence, social enterprise, and creating entertaining PowerPoints. I’ve lived in eight countries and speak English, French, Spanish, some Italian, and moderate Mandarin. I love to be outdoors, practice yoga, play and sing music, and laugh at myself.
