Hi! I’m Aisling (pronounced Ashling) and I’m a 28 year old from Ireland!
From Ireland to China, I lived in China for 5 years. I did an internship, worked, studied Mandarin, and then finally worked in a University, until finally leaving China in July 2018.
I met my now fiancé in romantic Chengdu and we’ve been stuck together for the last 4 years!
‘How did I end up living in China?’ you may ask. Well Ireland had very limited ( I mean NO) job opportunities for me, so I decided to do an internship teaching English in China.
This blog details my life in Ireland, moving to China, teaching, studying and travelling. If you’ve read my blog, you may have noticed the trend ‘I’m leaving China….. now I’m staying in China…. oh I’m leaving China for certain….’
And yes, I’ve FINALLY left the Middle Kingdom!
I’ve now moved to a pretty city called Cuernavaca in Mexico where I plan to become fluent in Spanish so I will be able to at last talk to my fiancé’s father who cannot speak English. My next instalments will be my travels around Mexico, life here, and the daunting task of learning Spanish!
