    Hi, Nicks, I am Yani, a 43 years old woman ,mother of two sons , joining my husband who now works in Shanghai. Today is my 20th day in Shanghai, but my husband already stayed for seven months. I like your report. Nice and interesting. I like writing also, I have my own diary. I named it My China Diary. My Diary could be a little different view, since my activity is a house wife, and I am a Muslim, so some of my diary tells a lot about this fact. I ask your permission, if you don,t mind, I want to take some information about Shanghai from your report. As you know, not every people in my country in Indonesia can speak English, So I want them to have my stiry in Indonesian language. Please, let me know if you visit Shanghai, my husband will welcome you verymuch

      The thumb. A very useful part of the anatomy, especially when you decide to head out into the world, hitchhike and use other modes of transportation. For Jo Magpie, it (both actually) have served her well in her travels – always heading east. She’s once again on the move. Yup, east.

      Naomi, David and their two sons are ‘on a slow roam around the world’. Though both successful, David didn’t want his children to view him as the dad who was always working. So, with the business and house sold, possessions relocated – the four set off to explore. Their style of travel allows them to live/work in comfort while spending quality time with Lucas and Easy (Ezekiel).

      In 2008, the Annison family moved from the UK to New Zealand and bought a boat. In 2010, they upgraded to a camper van to explore the country. Though the cats stay home to help the elder son with the yard work and house, the remainder of the family (including the dogs) traverse the open roads of Kiwidom, searching for hidden treasures.
