This is me:
My name is Becky Ances and I am a writer, traveler, and tea drinker. I am a former magazine editor, current book author and teacher living in China. I spent 10 idyllic years in a small New Hampshire town until the call of the road was too loud to ignore. I never had any special draw towards China, but I realized I could teach English here and make money for my true passion: traveling. I came for a 6-month lark. That was in 2009. I haven’t left since. Something about the culture and the people attracted me in ways my home country never did.
I lived in Hangzhou for 5 years before moving to my current home of Xiamen. I’m also single and happily date Chinese guys which I write about from time to time.
Never one to be content sitting at home bored, I am a pretty active person trying to meet as many people as possible and explore as many places as I can and interpret it all through my blog. There’s too much misunderstanding between the West and China, and I hope to bring a unique perspective and hopefully a bit of understanding to it all.
Got a question for me? Write me an e-mail at chinabecky(at)gmail(dot)com.
