After a jam-packed week in Singapore, it’s time for a wrap-up post. This is my seventh post in my ‘Can I live here?’ experiment. (Check out my previous wrap-up posts here). After six collective weeks in China, Taiwan and Malaysia, let’s see how Singapore compared! Despite being the penultimate country/city on my list, Singapore was actually … More Singapore wrap-up: Can I live here?
If you’ve been reading my blog for a while now you’ll know that one reason I embarked on my Asia trip was to see where else I could live in the world.

And so ends my time in city number five as part. It’s wrap-up time once again to see how Kuala Lumpur compared to all the other places as part of my ‘Can I live here?’ experiment as I travel.

After a pretty, errr, challenging week in Beijing and intro to China, (almost being homeless, train ticket stress, communication difficulties), you can imagine I was skipping in delight about the idea of arriving in metropolitan Shanghai. And it didn’t disappoint! Let’s see how it fared. (I’ve only employed a ‘rating out of 5’ system so I have an easy way to rank each city! I’m not wanting to judge anyone else’s homeland harshly!) … More Shanghai wrap-up: Can I live here?
When I started my trip this summer, one thing I had in mind was to see where else in the world I could potentially happily live. At the top of my list I already had Hong Kong but I wanted to see if there were any other contenders out there. (This seems like an expensive way … More Beijing wrap-up: Can I live here?
About a month ago, I read a book called ‘Can We Live Here?’ by Sarah Alderson. It’s a true story that follows Sarah and her husband as they quit their London jobs, pack up/sell everything they own and set out to find a new home in the world, with their three-year-old daughter in tow (dressed in a tutu).
