A brief timeline of 2015

with one comment

01 January

Arrived back in Beijing, after festive break in England with the family, in mid-January.

Continued working on a story about Buddhism for CNN, commissioned in December.

02 February

Celebrated Chinese New Year on the 19th, welcoming in the Year of the Sheep.IMG_2838

Two days later, I left for Myanmar. I spent a total of 18 days in Burma, hunting for stories and traveling. A mishap with flights meant I spent too much money on this trip.

The Telegraph published my article entitled The Good, Bad, and Ugly of Moving to Beijing.

03 March

Finally ended my association with BON, a TV company I’d worked for since November 2013.

I had no longer an office job and would now be living entirely on freelancing income.

At the end of the month, The Telegraph published another of my pieces, which was to be my final one for the expat section, due to budget cuts.
