Hi! I’m Aisling (pronounced Ashling) and I’m a 28 year old from Ireland!
From Ireland to China, I’ve been living here for 4.5 years now. When I first arrived in Chengdu, I worked full time, then I started studying Mandarin and worked part time, and finally I’ve decided to work in a University!
I met my now fiancé in romantic Chengdu and we’ve been stuck together for the last 3.5 years!
‘How did I come to live 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. They shipped me to Chengdu and I’ve been here ever since.
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’m still in China for the time being!
Anyone interested in either moving to or travelling to this huge country, I think this blog may be useful!
And, any questions you would like to ask me about China or Chengdu feel free!
