  4. Hi,

    This is a wonderful blog! It was a very good read.

    I was wondering if you would be interested in guest blogging on my blog. It is a collection of my travels and the travels of my guests. If you scan the site you can see that now almost 100% of the posts are from guests. Lately I’ve been finding many people interested in guest posting.

    Included in your post will be a link to your website using whatever anchor text or key words you wish and a description of your site (if you choose to include one.)

    My blog (onetravel.wordpress.com) receives about 2000 visitors a day and that number is steadily growing.

    So if you are interested in being a guest, please let me know.

    Send me an Email:

    Warm Regards,

      George: Sure, thanks for the invite. I won’t even begin to be able to think about it until about September, when I’m back “home” in China and have time to process all the adventures of my holiday. If you don’t hear from me, please contact me again. Take care, Roger

  5. Your blog is a great find, Roger, especially since I’m leaving for Kaifeng, China, on Sept. 2 at the invitation of some semi-Christian residents there. And, I’ve actually thought about teaching English in China. Contact me at revpaulmckay@gmail.com sometime will you.

  6. Great,nice to see you!english teacher

  7. interesting blog. plan to read more .

  8. Hey Roger!
    Miss you here in California. Your pictures are as amzing as always. I am so glad that you do this so I can keep up with you and your life. As always thinking of you my friend.

  9. Hi Roger – Just stumbled upon your blog after searching for reviews of a book with the same title. I think your blog is beautifully written with gorgeous photos.

    I’m an expat too…living in HK…from California, Los Angeles. And, my family and I just returned from a trip to Chengdu (and Juizhaighou, Huang Luong, Ehmei Shan, etc.). Small world.

    I’ve only scanned your blog so far, but I look forward to reading and seeing more…especially as we hope to visit to India and Nepal sometime. I’m not sure if you talk about your camera or photo tips on your blog, but I’m going to look out for any insights you may have mentioned.

    Happy adventures!
