Adventures of Life in Beijing

About me

Hi there! I’m Kirsten Harrington and I love my family, travel, food and crazy adventures. Like swapping our comfortable life in Orlando for a two-year stint in Beijing. I’m so glad to have you along for the journey.

I love exploring!

I hope you’ll follow along as I fumble with chopsticks, navigate the subway and order in Mandarin (hmmm, is that donkey or lamb I’m eating?).

Donkey burgers – a popular Beijing lunch.


There is so much I can’t wait to discover about my temporary new home.

Like exotic street food on every corner

Scorpions anyone?

To beautiful parks and green spaces.

So buckle up, it’s going to be amazing!
