About Me

Mahalo for visiting Always On The Way!

Aloha! My name is Julie Cao. Mahalo for visiting my blog,

I am a Chinese born and a London-based (London in Ontario, Canada) travel blogger. I have spent my first 20 years in China and moved to North America in 2006. Since then, I have spent majority of my life here, and share my stories, tips and experiences on my travel blog Always On The Way.

For the past ten years, I have traveled extensively throughout North and Latin America, while live in the USA and Canada. As an expat, I wanted to share my guides and stories not just from a traveler’s perspective, but through a local’s lens. I have found that most articles written in the guidebooks and online are from tourists, so this blog strive to fill the gap between foreign visitors and locals by bringing the inside knowledge especially about USA and Canada, so people can further enrich their travel experience in these two countries.

Apart from my passion of traveling and writing, my interests include medieval history and antiquity, linguistics, and books. Occasionally, I write about restaurants and food too.

While running this blog, I work as a social service worker and freelancer. Also, I eat lots of spicy food and chocolate, and prefer cold wintry climate to the summer heat.

While I am not working, you can probably find me exploring exotic lands, taking long walks, studying Latin, and sticking my nose in a book in a park.
