Just Turn Left at the Mountain – Trials & Tribulations Meandering Across Chinese Borders by Andy Smart

With zero Chinese speaking ability and minimal planning, Andy’s story starts with a disastrous online romance played out in South China and his great escape. From a first Chinese haircut, to encountering the most fearsome waitress in China, to Chengdu and its famous napalm like hot pot, the journey winds its way from Tibet into Yunnan via one of the most dangerous bus journeys in the world. Across borders he foolishly goes ghost hunting in Cambodia and to the DMZ’s ‘no man’s land’ in South Korea. We also take a visit to the eagle hunters of Western Mongolia and the Russian border where Andy manages a Mongolian holiday camp.

    • Thanks Carolina > When I was on the road I wrote everything down on bits of paper stuffed into a pocked diary or plastic bag. When I got the time I’d delicately unfold them and get them digital. Phew > I still think it’s the best way to write. Friday tomorrow 😉

    • Hi there Dee > Glad to hear it. It’s Tomb Sweeping weekend here in China. I tried going out to visit a temple yesterday but there are so many people out that the roads were static. In the end I came home. Rule 1: when there is a Chinese national holiday stay at home! LOL

  1. Hi,
    I know many people here.
    I am learning to incorporate video to get blog traffic. I plan on blogging about it soon.
    Congratulations on being Danny Ray’s featured blogger. I was his featured blogger too. Maybe you can check out my blog if you need a blogging tip or two. That’s what I write about.
