Are you connected to the tourism/travel/hospitality industries or travel media in any way? If so, please specify how (kindly include any relevant company names/Web sites!).
I'm a Corporate Comms specialist by profession, freelance travel writer by passion. I enjoy visiting developing countries, countries that are distinctly different from the urban jungle that I live in and sharing these experiences with others.
I maintain a travel blogsite, www.thebrowndot.com, and my travel pictures site, https://picasaweb.google.com/dottiedot77. My wanderlust has brought me to places including Iran, Syria, Taiwan, China, Nepal, Tibet, Laos, Cambodia, Japan, India, Malaysia, Turkey, Thailand, Vietnam amongst others and I've written travel articles for newspapers and magazines in both English and Mandarin. I enjoy painting, volunteering my media expertise for causes and ngos that I believe in and sharing facets of my countries with new friends. If you are in town, and would like to make a new friend, I'll be happy to show you around.
