About

In December of 2008, I packed my bags and boarded a plane to a place both familiar and unfamiliar – Hong Kong. What was supposed to be a three month backpacking trip has turned into nearly ten years, and counting, of living and traveling around Asia and beyond. By day I’m a financial journalist, chasing leads and breaking stories on a subtropical island facing the South China Sea, and, while I enjoy the work that I do, it’s nice to get away from the news desk a few times a year and scribble about something other than funds and markets. So then, what I write here is a record of the various travel itches that I’ve satisfied since that fateful backpacking trip, and a periodically-updated narrative on where Ernie goes.
