Looking for a new challenge away from my native country of Belgium I embarked on a two-year journey around China and Egypt as a tour leader with an adventure tour operator. It didn't take long for me to fall for the stunning beauty and the amazing diversity of China and I enjoyed getting to know the four corners of this vast land in the company of enthusiastic groups.
