Welcome to WanderFong! My name is Deb Fong, and I am currently a Netherlands-based expat by way of New York City and most recently Hong Kong!
Funny where life takes you – I never expected to actually live abroad. Living in Hong Kong with my husband Mark for 2.5 years, I discovered the big city draws and the hidden little gems, the old and the new, the local nuances and the more western influences, the traditional and the edgy, the eclectic mix of true locals and fellow expats. I immersed myself in everything – the amalgam of cuisine, culture, the incredible natural surroundings, the promise of new friends with their own unique stories. And I thoroughly enjoyed my deeper explorations of the region. My travel adventures, photography, and blog coverage of the region led me to become a contributor on various platforms, including the Getty Images Moment Collection, MasterCard’s Priceless Cities Hong Kong campaign, and the newly launched travel magazine Borderlines.
I decided to start my blog (originally called Hong Kong Fong), more as a personal diary of sorts, but it has evolved to become more of an immersive experience covering broader territory as I continue to travel the world. Now based in Europe, I am excited about my next chapter. More than ever, I want to absorb and document my explorations both in writing and with the photos I always enjoy taking (I’ve been photographing around the world for about 16 years – for more info on this, please see below).
I look forward to continuing to share my perspectives with other like-minded explorers and those who are just curious. Please join me on my adventures, and I hope you enjoy my observations of and musings on life in the Netherlands and travel throughout Europe and beyond. Thanks for reading, and please share with your friends and family!
