I am a wanderlust and have become a ‘professional tourist’ since mid September 2010 after leaving my job. My family and friends have always asked about my trips. I have therefore decided to set up a website for my travel.
Life is a great journey and I believe travel is a fantastic way to discover oneself and for new experience, self-development and -actualization. I am not a good writer nor a professional photographer but hope to share with you my passion for travel, observations and experience while I am on the road.
Travel has been part of my life and I have been to some 90 countries so far. My philosophy has been heavily influenced by the first few trips I made in the 1970s.The first trip outside Hong Kong was a two-week study trip sponsored by the Sing Tao Newspaper to the UK in 1975 for a group of 20 secondary students. The second one was a self-organised and -financed study tour to India, Nepal and Bangadesh with 11 graduates of the Department of Social Work from the University of Hong Kong in 1978. The third trip was to the UK on a one-year study course at Oxford in 1979. I also worked overseas for 11 years from 1987 to 2010 and have travelled extensively for my work.
In brief, travel has been an essential part of my life providing an invaluable source for knowledge, inspirations, new experience, self-development and actualization. For me, travel is for life. As I am not working now, I plan to spend most of my time on the road as a ‘professional tourist’.
