555 Days in Beijing is the story of a Canadian teaching English in Beijing, China. Most travel stories talk about exotic foods, delightful architecture and sacred cultural practices. Not this one. It’s more than a tale of the daily grind. 555 Days in Beijing talks about the untalked about. The parts of international travel that only come up after the honeymoon period; when you’ve settled in and are living in a foreign land as a local. These journal entries poignantly and humorously highlight the last segment in a struggle that has lasted nearly twenty years; the author’s fight for recognition as a human being in a foreign culture. 555 Days in Beijing is Book One in the Scrappy Traveller Trilogy. Book 2: The Saudi Files: notes from the field and Book 3: South Korea and Indonesia: in context complete the series.

The author's latest book - Experimentum - is available for pre-order.
