  • Bye Bye Beijing :(

    Tsinghua

    BYE TSINGHUA! BYE BEIJING! BYE CHINA! :'( Exchange went by much too fast, but I’m super grateful for the opportunity to complete my studies abroad.

    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 […]
