Squat Toilets and Chopsticks

Philip Bryan

How many times have you stood outside your door, or looked out the window and realised that all you see is just a little piece of sky? There is so much more than what you see above where you are. Under every little piece is a different culture, a different way of life, new experiences, places to see and a world of opportunity.
Travelling is perhaps one of the greatest opportunities to live a fulfilled life.
Experiencing different cultures or moving to a different country where nobody knows who you are allows you to live and enjoy an amazing life. Breaking out of comfort zones allows you to achieve so much. Perhaps you are seeking a change of career, new challenges, more exciting adventures, or a fresh start.
In his book, Squat Toilets and Chopsticks: Experiencing Life Through Travel, Philip Bryan takes you on a journey from a life-changing trip to Jordan and other countries including Cambodia, Australia, Israel and finally to China where he works as a high school English teacher.
This book shares his experiences, struggles, views, and life-changing moments.
In life, we are faced with many problems and uncertainties both in our personal and professional lives. Travelling can provide you with an opportunity to solve those and realise there is more to life. There is a world out there. Get out and live it.

About the Author

Bryan, Philip: - From a small town, Callan, County Kilkenny, in the Republic of Ireland, Philip William Bryan currently lives in the city of Guiyang in the Guizhou Province of the People's Republic of China, where he works as an English and a physical education teacher. He is currently working at the Number One High School of Guiyang. He spent many years prior working in the retail industry specifically managing forecourt and service stations.
After a life-changing trip to the Hashemite Kingdom of Jordan in 2015, he has changed his lifestyle around completely. He no longer is a prisoner of the Monday to Friday nine to five routine but now enjoys a rewarding and fulfilling life in China, where he has been since 2016. His travel stories are based on his own experiences and life.
Ever since that trip to Jordan and the inspiring people he met there, his attitude and way of life have changed dramatically.
