Asia Books and Travel


Welcome to my website. I’m a writer who has been living and working in East Asia for 10 years, mainly in the lovely island nation of Taiwan. I enjoy traveling and reading, so this site is a way to combine those two. I especially enjoy visiting major cities, historical sites, museums, and going on moderate hikes on mountains, so those are what I’ll focus on in this site. I only write about places I’ve visited personally so everything here is based on my experiences and observations.

Just to be clear, this is not one of those “I quit my job to travel and so should you!” type of blogs. Travel can be enjoyed in many forms, whether as a round-the-world odyssey, a short trip taken with annual leave, or even just a weekend getaway.

I’m a keen solo traveler who has traveled to a fair bit of Asia, especially East and Southeast Asia. I’ve also read a lot of novels and non-fiction related to Asia, ranging from India to Vietnam to China to Taiwan. I don’t only travel or read books about Asia, of course, so there will be content about Africa, Europe and other parts of the world.

I hope you find something that interests you here, whether it’s about travel or books.
