Welcome to my blog!
My name is Linda and I first came to China in 2012, while I was studying foreign languages (one of them being Mandarin) and business in Germany. Finally in June 2012, I got to visit Beijing with my Chinese course. However, long before that I knew I wanted to go abroad and live in China.
After my graduation in 2012 I decided to make my dream come true and move to China. I lived in Guangzhou working for a German online marketing company. However, I could only spend a total of 8 months in this beautiful country when I had to go to the US to finish my Bachelor’s degree. But my passion for the Middle Kingdom has grown so strong that I moved back in 2014 and currently live in Changsha, Hunan Province.
During my time in China I have learned to see the world differently and I also fell in love with this country. I write about everything China-related.
Interracial relationships with Asian men is also a key topic of my blog, since I dated a Chinese guy back in Guangzhou and am now in a (long-distance) relationship with a Korean.
However, anyone interested in China and Korea, if female or not, will find interesting information about two of the greatest countries in the world on my blog! Please also follow me on Twitter and Pinterest!
I have studied Mandarin since 2010. After studying the language for about 1.5 years I passed HSK 2 in Munich, Germany. When I came to China in October 2012, I continued taking Chinese classes and passed HSK 3 in December 2012. Currently, I am preparing for HSK 4 🙂
My love for Korea started when falling in love with my Korean boyfriend. Now, I not only write about China but also Korea-related topics and the
Korean language. I visited South Korea in June 2014 for the first time.
Being in an intercultural relationship with a Korean man gives me a good insight in the Asian/Korean culture and the difference and similarities between Korea and China or especially the West.
I have had a passion for foreign languages all my life: I studied French for 8 years, Spanish for 5, Chinese for 4 years and now also started learning Korean.
