After graduating from the LSE / King's College London and the Institut d'Etudes Politiques in Paris, the lure of the Orient was too much for Vicky Honour, and her feet led her to China for the start of a fascinating journey through another culture.
Born in Bromley in 1975, travelling has always been a passion, prompted by her childhood spent in Paris with her ex-pat parents. Extensive travels in Europe, the US and Canada could not, however, prepare her for what she was to find in China, where she taught at the University of Nankai in Tianjin, or in beautiful and tragic Tibet which became her ‘holy grail’. Although now living and working as a journalist in England, Vicky says a part of her remains in China – the Chinese part of her that was christened Rong Yi Yi. Vicky was named Shepherd Neame Kent Young Journalist of the Year 2000.
