Story of a trip to Asia without a return ticket
My name is Marcos Silva and I am from Tarragona, Spain.
After finishing my Master’s Degree in Secondary Education, I decided to leave the competitive examinations for another year and went with some friends to see a little of the world. We spent three months travelling through Thailand, Vietnam and Laos until our paths separated. My friends returned to Spain and I opted to go to China alone, specifically to the province of Yunnan.
I was living with monks for a month and then started working as an extra for a Chinese TV series. I liked it so much that I finally started studying Chinese and stayed there.
Almost without realizing it, I’ve been living in China for 7 years now and traveling through most of Asia. I earn my living teaching languages and guiding Yunnan whenever I can. I currently reside in Kunming, Yunnan Province, which I consider to be the most charming province in all of China.
This blog is written to have a good souvenir of all my travels and also to lend a hand to all those who dare to visit Asia.
