About Me

imageMy name is Anna and I was born and raised in the small capital city of Cardiff, Wales to Hong Kong Chinese parents. 

I always had an inkling that my world was not destined to be confined to the ‘Land of Song’. At the tender age of nine, I received my first atlas, and I Knew! I Knew my growing wings would take me to places far beyond the beautiful rolling hills and lush green valleys of Wales.

The ‘obsession’ for travel really started six years ago when a series of events, led me to move overseas in my career as an interior designer. Three years in the Middle East opened up a whole new world to explore. Mysterious Oman, legendary Jordan, ancient Egypt and colourful India unearthed an unsatiable Wanderlust.  And realizing that the world really was my oyster, Asia called to me next… what became another three years in Singapore where exotic locales were just a kiss away.

My daily life is spent in a full time job as an interior designer which allows me the opportunity to work on hotel projects in and around southeast asia. I would love to renounce my daily routine of commutes, timesheets and impossible deadlines, but I haven’t been able to surrender the security of a career yet… Like many of you I’m a regular person with a mortgage and bills to pay. Some have done it, yes… the ‘bbctravel’ section is a constant reminder that I’m not quite as courageous as others. I confess… I am a ‘deskbound travel junkie’. 

My dreams of being a full time travel writer is within sight I hope – I am a regular writer for Sujatravel @ http://www.sujatravel.com where I’m joined by writers from all over the world who have their wonderful tales to share with you. I hope you’ll support us and me by liking and following our page. The blogs are not a collection of travel tips but a collective musing of my travels in the that hope I can inspire to set the wanderlust in you free! The world is not such a big place after all…

Recite this quote by Mark Twain to yourself in that ‘Groundhog Day’ moment and see the world…

“Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things that you didn’t do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sail away from the safe harbour. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover…”
