These pictures were taken on a hike in October 2015. The sky is blue, the scenery is beautiful and I am in China – Miyun to be exact, just north east of Beijing.
After years of “talking about it” and lots of time spent loving my two grand-daughters, I left my home of 28 years and my homeland of 56 years and came to China to teach English. I know many people didn’t believe I would ever leave my family behind, especially as grand baby #3 was due to arrive in October, but the end of August saw me bidding farewell to my daughter, son-in-law and three precious little people, knowing it would be a long time before I could hug the newest little fellow.
Although I had planned to combine my three blogs into this one blog, that hasn’t materialized. My health journey, which has drastically changed since leaving Canada, will be recorded at One Year, One Week, One Pound .
Here I will try to share with you some of the things I am learning about money and money management as I live outside of our country. I haven’t thought much about taxes, but I’m sure some will have to be paid. There are also other considerations that I hadn’t thought of, but may be helpful to others considering the “ex-pat” scene for a season of life.
In the meantime, I wish you a wonderful 2016, God’s richest blessing, and joy on the journey!
