Warsaw – Poland

The first reunion we had after exchange took place in Warsaw, Poland. I went to Poland a few times before but never to this capital. Sadly, the world war teared most of the old town apart, but the country was able to rebuild a big part of it so it regained its flair. I went…

Nikko – Japan

Nikko is a cute little town around an hour by train and then bus from Tokyo. Perfect for a daytrip. I heard of the ton of beautiful temples in this town and the beautiful mountain nature around it. That is what brought me there and Nikko held what it promised. I don’t know why, but…

Nara – Japan

Nara, known as the deer town and sure that is what it is. Lots of deer that are not shy at all and are happy to get a snack from you. But apart from the deer it has beautiful parks and temples. All in walkable distance for a nice daytrip either from Osaka or Kyoto…

Tokyo – Japan

It was my dream since being a teenager to once in a lifetime travel to Japan, especially Tokyo since I’m in love with big cities. To right away start in Tokyo was wonderful! I spend a few days there before starting my round trip around Japan and it also ended with another few days in…

Bali – Indonesia

Bali, the main center for digital nomads, wanderers, travelers, globetrotter and people from all over the world to calm down and find their inner center.

Beijing – China

Oh Beijing, such a wonderful city full of culture, modern sides, famous spots, delicious food and party possibilities.

Macau – China

The “Las Vegas” of China, that is what Macau is also known for. I’m not much into gambling, so I just played on a few slot machines, but some of our guys really got into it. Anyway, even if like me you are not into gambling, it is still worth a visit if you are…

Exchange semester in Shenzhen – China

Shenzhen – China

Since I have spent five months on exchange in Shenzhen this is going to be a longer post. Retrospective I tried to summarize the different experiences I made. The whole time I went through ups and downs, loving and hating the Chinese culture at the same time. I wouldn’t say I went though culture shock…
