We’re always interested in the stories of our fellow travelers. We found Go Tour-ing researching the possibility of a season in Beijing, and wanted immediately to invite Co-Founder, Douglas Ma, to contribute to our blog. We asked him what led him to start his company, this is what he said:In the spring of 2008, I decided to leave my job at an investment bank to take some time off to travel. As an American, two weeks off a year just wasn’t enough and I needed an extended break after five years behind a desk. I decided to use Beijing as my travel base since I wanted to attend the Summer Olympics. As my travels took me all over China, I fell in love with the country. How could you not? With a history that dates back more than two thousand years; to some of the most amazing food in the world; to a race towards modernization that is mind-blowing, China is at the center of it all.
