After 38 years as a Foreign Language Teacher and Foreign Language Dept. Chair at Coral Gables Sr. H.S., and A.J. Professor of German at the University of Miami, I have left Florida in June of 2006, where my home is in Miami Beach, Florida, USA. I have just signed another year's teaching-contract (my 8th year now) with Taizhou University in the city of Taizhou, located about 3hrs north of Shanghai, in Jiangsu Province, CHINA.
I thought it would be informative for others and rewarding for me personally, to log the progress of my efforts from beginning to end, as a Travel and Photo Journal. I appreciate greatly the TravelBlog web-site, which has given me the means to stay in touch with my family, friends, students, and colleagues.
Since I have already visited China via Airline several times, I have been searching for alternative future ways to travel between the USA and China. Two options continue to be my favorites and will explore them further in the future:
1. Via Ship-Freighter from East Cost of US through Panama Canal to Korea to Shanghai :-)
2. Via Trans-Siberian-Railroad from London to Brussels to Cologne to Moscow to Beijing to Taizhou 😊
3. Via American Airlines from Miami to Chicago or L.A., and direct flight on to Shanghai, :-)
So for now and the future, I will continue my work as a teacher and continue my travels in this amazing country of China, and collect the memories with this incredible new Technology, making it possible to communicate from anywhere in real time. I hope many of you will continue to join me in this late-life adventure, teaching English at Taizhou University in China, in the small but quickly developing city of Taizhou, in Jiangsu Province of China.
