Filled with stories from his world travels, the new travelogue, “From Chicken Feet to Crystal Baths: An Englishman’s Travels Throughout China” (published by AuthorHouse) by author Ian Mote gives travel lovers an inside view of the sights, sounds, and flavors from every province in China.

In “From Chicken Feet to Crystal Baths,” he details some of his most memorable moments in China, including stays at first-class establishments in Shanghai, drunken banquets with miners in Inner Mongolia, wanderings in the Gobi Desert and the hardships of reaching Everest Base Camp … in a bus.

Although it acts as a memoir of Mote’s travels through Asia, “From Chicken Feet to Crystal Baths” also serves to exemplify how a Western expatriate like Mote adjusted to life in China, with the highs and lows along the way. Mote describes the many cultural nuances of life in the Eastern world, and how they differ from those of the West.

He hopes to share the stories from his travels so that he can inspire others to travel and explore the world as he did.
