Hi there! This is David, and these are the accounts of my wanderings.
This travelogue was intended to be a way to stay in touch with family and friends, broadly explaining what was I up to at the moment without having to mail or call them all and repeat the same places, anecdotes and curiosities I found along the way, over and over again… but it soon became a way to publicly share and help understand the places, traditions, and cultures from where I have been since I left home back in 2004.
After graduating, I decided to shake up my life, taking an opportunity to work in Zhuhai, China, for a British engineering company. During that time, I witnessed the fast-paced transformation of that city and the country as a whole, from being a mere crossing point to Macau to becoming integrated into the Pearl River delta economic zone, while most weekends were spent on Hong Kong and Macau, partying and gambling, respectively.
My career brought me then to Mexico, where I nested in Culiacán, capital of Sinaloa, home of the best food I’ve ever had; I also lived for a while in Ireland (Killarney), before getting a second chance in China, this time in Suzhou, where I’ve worked for a German manufacturing company as a head of operations and sales, and also getting married to a gorgeous culichi. Talk about fate. Five years later, I landed in Bulgaria as a plant general manager, at just 35 years old.
