April A to Z-Travel Tips, Xingfu Style

There is an annual challenge called Blogging A to Z. Last year I gave it a whirl in China A to Z. This year I will share some travel tips. Please don’t go…

I know there are about a ka-jillion blog posts out there called “x travel tips you must follow”, “y things you need to pack” or similar. I have yet to find one that isn’t affiliate marketing. My tips are not. Nothing to buy, just some stuff I’ve learned, and maybe you can share what you’ve learned and we can have some fun.

These are things I have learned, by trial and error, or serendipity, from traveling both as a tourist and when I go to stay for a while and be with real people, at home and abroad.

Who am I?

I am not a skinny-mini, perfectly coiffed and physically fit “social influencer” who can learn a new language and bounce up a mountain before breakfast. I am a middle-aged (on the down hill side), moderately active, well-rounded traveler, in more ways than one. I like both saving money and being comfortable (who doesn’t?).

I like people, but I am a bit shy.

I like seeing pretty things and having new experiences, within reason, but I am not exceptionally bold…or athletic.

Who are you?

I will share what I’ve picked up and am hoping you can join in and share your experiences.

  1. As a fellow traveller, I am looking forward to your tips. Our big holiday this year will be to Japan in May. Meanwhile, I am writing about our travels around Australia in our caravan in this year’s A to Z.

  2. I’m really looking forward to your travels in Cumbria and I much prefer honest posts that are free from affiliate marketing 🙂💖


  3. Great take at the challenge. Looking forward to read about your travel. I travel a lot less than I’d like, but learning new things is good. And who knows when you’ll need just that one advice? 😉
