    The last stop on our Vietnam trip was Ho Chi Minh City (we travelled North to South). Our overnight bus arrived at ~4:30 am which was much earlier than expected. We got lucky that the bus stopped at the park that was right by our hostel (NgocThao Guesthouse – I would not suggest it though. […]

    798 Art District

    Super short post but I thought I would just put up some photos of 798 Art District because I really enjoyed my time there. This area has a bunch of cool exhibits and restaurants that you probably wouldn’t find anywhere else in Beijing. It’s a little inconvenient to get to, but definitely worth the visit. […]

    Summer Palace - Beijing

    After finishing my exams I had some time to explore Beijing before I set off to Vietnam for my last exchange adventure. For some reason, during my semester I never took the opportunity to explore Beijing. Instead I traveled around Asia and spent my free time in Beijing eating or at bars. However, within Beijing […]

    The next day we headed off the the Imperial Palace. Since we arrived after cherry blossom season was over we decided not to go to Shinjuku Gyoen National Garden. But if you happen to go to Japan during April you’ll likely see pink gardens full of cherry blossoms. At the Imperial Palace we wore our Yukata and took pictures on […]

    The next day (check out day 1 here) we were exhausted so we headed to Insa-dong again (I forgot to mention this earlier but the day before I had the best macaron ice cream ever). Since my friend and I wanted to try octopus again we passed through Insa-dong so I could purchase a bracelet […]
