ChinaTravel is brought to you by a team of passionate young editors, whose independent spirit and thirst for adventure brought them all knocking on China's door. With a combined 14 years of China experience between them, they've gan bei'd in Ganzhou, flown high in Shanghai, and got down in Ningbo and many more places besides. You'll find them both on and off the beaten path, and always ready to share their adventures.
Aimee arrived on Shanghai's shores in 2005 and hasn't looked back since. Though based in the big city, she likes to get out and about in the open air and running the Great Wall Half Marathon is possibly her greatest achievement to date. When she's not heading off to discover unknown beaches and countryside, she can be found free-wheeling round the streets of her French Concession neighborhood or holed up in a cozy cafe, depending on the weather.
No matter how long she stays in China, she will never get over the fact that people have outdoor pajamas and put shoes on dogs. Aimee makes up the British contingent of the ChinaTravel group. If you spot the occasional superfluous "u", you know who to blame.
Raised in Nashville, Tennessee in the United States, Miller Wey studied writing at Loyola Marymount University in Los Angeles. He got his first taste of China in 2005, when he studied in Beijing for a semester and traveled around the country. Returning to China in 2008, he lived, worked and traveled from the coastal city of Ningbo in Zhejiang for two-and-a-half years before moving up to Shanghai where he joined the ChinaTravel team. In addition to his work on ChinaTravel and Ctrip, Miller works with literary group H.A.L. Publishing in Shanghai.
James was born and raised in Ann Arbor, Michigan, before spending his collegiate years studying English and History at the University of Vermont in Burlington. Following graduation, James ventured to China, where he visited his sister and accidentally stayed for six months, spending time in Eastern China and Laos. Returning after a summer back in the States, he now pens stories for the ChinaTravel Blog, edits content for Ctrip English and uses every possible opportunity to explore China further.
Amber grew up on a farm in Northeastern Pennsylvania, earned an Advertising and Public Relations degree from Penn State University and moved to Philadelphia where she helped raise over 1 million dollars for woman's health, worked to end homelessness, befriended Bill Cosby and started a recycled-wool mitten business to fund her love for snowboarding. Restless, and in need of adventure, she made the leap to Ganzhou Jiangxi, China in 2009 and began traveling and working around the Middle Kingdom and Southeast Asia. After a chance meeting in Saigon, she and her boyfriend chose to live in Shanghai to be a part of the action. Amber works on the Activities section of ChinaTravel.net Blog.
