Cruising the Yangtze, Part 3

My other travel reblog of the week is of course with the Guide to all things Chinese.. Tess Karlinski who is this week still up the Yangtze without a paddle… If she had a paddle she and the other passengers would not now be stuck in the fog as traffic up and down the river goes one-way only. However as usual Tess gives us a blow by blow account of the meals served and when I say not in a pig’t ear I mean.. not in a pig’s ear..

Tess is currently on an unplanned hiatus and it would be great if we could spread her detailed China travels around the globe.. thanks #recommended

About Smorgasbord - Variety is the Spice of Life.

My name is Sally Cronin and I am doing what I love.. Writing. Books, short stories, Haiku and blog posts. My previous jobs are only relevant in as much as they have gifted me with a wonderful filing cabinet of memories and experiences which are very useful when putting pen to paper. I move between non-fiction health books and posts and fairy stories, romance and humour. I love variety which is why I called my blog Smorgasbord Invitation and you will find a wide range of subjects. You can find the whole story here. Find out more at
