Cardboardbird likes to travel to places different than where he came from. He grew up in Australia but for now calls Changzhou in China home.

My focus is building China pages for smaller destinations that have been neglected. Having said that, lately, most of my time is being spent on pages in my home state, Western Australia.

Most of the info I contribute is gathered first hand while in the destination itself, but I sometimes do a bit of fact checking research online for history, phone numbers and the like. I need to get into the habit of writing down names of guesthouses and restaurants.

I'm not much of a writer but I do what I can.

Current projects

  • Perth – Districtification in progress. Clean up the Sleep listings. Hack some sludgy copy in Eat/Buy.
  • Wyndham – Put in basic info. Needs some more to bring it to usable status.
  • Warmun – Put in basic info. Do; not done. Understand; partly done.
  • Jurien Bay – Put in basic info. Do; not done. Understand; partly done.
  • Dwellingup – Build from scratch. Include Lane Poole Reserve.
  • Suzhou – General clean up. Expand the See section.
  • Changzhou – Get some field research done now that the weather is warmer. Needs a lot of work.

Regions

  • Western Australia – Maps and regions done. Get out; done. Drink; partly done. Eat; not done.
  • Kimberley – General clean up. New map.
  • Wheatbelt – Understand, Do, Eat, Drink, Sleep; not done. See; done.
  • Mid west – Much to be done.


Completed projects

  • Kununurra – Brought up to guide status. Nominated for OTBP.
  • Hongcun – Brought up to usable status.
