One Thursday 4th May I decided to be my own tour guide. I had been told that it’s too far to do it alone and it won’t be any fun etc etc. Pfffft! I can enjoy myself walking along any foreign street and I love wandering around all day. So I decided to conduct my own tour. PS if you are commenting on Facebook, I can’t access it. I will open up comments on my blog pages for ppl desperate to connect!

Double Happiness Courtyard Hotel in one of the Hutong areas of Beijing. It’s in a VERY quiet area and takes you back in time. You will probably have to click the link to go to photos because of the China/Facebook block.
So if you are travelling in China and working remotely, there are some essential tools which may not work. As my tour guide said yesterday, ‘if Google won’t abide by the laws of China then they can expect to not be allowed to operate here.’ I totally agree – F@#$ off Google and Facebook if you won’t accept China’s censorship laws.

I purchased a lot of expensive items for my trip and thought it would be useful to log which ones did well and which ones didn’t. I’ve listed the items below and will fill in the blanks about their performance as and when appropriate.
