Hello, welcome to the adventures of luna finula, a blog about travelling, whimsical explorations, fateful encounters and a sprinkling of inspiration and appreciation for the little things in life.
Hello, my name is Siobhan (Pippi) Lumsden, or as I am more commonly known east-side- 月雪芳. I’m currently living in the Chinese city of Shenzhen, doing voices for cartoons at Fantawild Animation and enjoying re-exploring this land. You see, 6 years ago I decided it was time to venture to far-away lands, so I packed up my pink rucksack and well, since then I haven’t looked back.
In 2007 I touched down in South Africa as a voluntary drama teacher and it was LOVE. I don’t know where that amazing country had been hiding all my days, but I wasn’t prepared to let it go, which is why in 2008 I found myself rocking up in a little town called Grahamstown to attend Rhodes University. That place is the best! From there I landed a Confucius Institute scholarship and flew off to China as an exchange student. I didn’t realise that that crazy, Chinese land was creeping into my heart, but well, it did. Thus, after a short but sweet stint of living and teaching English in Cape Town, I jetted back to China to teach Chinese kids drama and baby ballet.
Then one day, whilst casually searching for jobs, I stumbled upon a gem. That gem allowed me to do voices for cartoons for more than a year (and now I’m back for more!). During those days I applied for a travel writing competition in Taiwan. I won, and the rest is history. Taiwan stole my heart, and she hasn’t given it back yet. I spent the past year studying Chinese, interning at Lomography Taipei, travelling all around that lovely island and having some of the best days of my life.
I decided to move back to Asia after a beautiful summer at home in Scotland. I interned at Lomography Asia in the glittering city of Hong Kong for 3 months, before deciding to return to the world of cartoons. I would like to continue my explorations, publish a children’s story or two one day, and keep enjoying every moment on this lovely earth.
Thank you for stopping by to join my adventure.
