Travel Diary: Cambridge

In 46minutes by train, I arrived at Cambridge and luckily it was an amazing sunny day. Actually, the most sunniest day (don’t know if this is proper English, but I don’t really care, I am just super delighted) I had in England for a month. All in all…

My First Month in LONDON… Loved it!!!

I have spent one whole month in London now and I have completely fallen in love with the city. There are many things that are just like what it was shown in the movies but I also found so many things I didn’t know before. London has definitely become my favorite place. Beijing, my hometown,…

Heading home!!

Now I am writing this post in Doha while waiting for my flight to Beijing. I just left Europe 10 hours ago. I don’t really feel too much leaving Europe but getting more and more exciting for going back to Beijing. It has been 11 months. So my journey continues but in my beloved hometown Beijing…

A Weekend in Athens

I remember a few things about Athens and Greece in general. Firstly, hot!! It was already very hot when we traveled there. I can’t even imagined what I would be like in August. Though AC is provided in restaurants and some places, but it is not strong enough. I was still sweating. So Greece is…

Busy Weekend Around Geneva

My study abroad program is actually based in Geneva, but for the past few weekends, I have constantly traveled away from Geneva. I barely walked around Geneva even though I have been here for over 6 weeks. I decided to take a break and chill out in this past weekend. Initially I thought stay at…

A weekend in Paris: Baigner dans le coeur de Paris

This time, I went on the journey to Paris by myself. I needed time to be alone and I wanted to see my friends in Paris badly. Approaching Paris on the flight, I was getting more and more exciting. Paris is for sure one of the greatest city in the world and I am a…

A weekend up in the mountain: Interlaken & Jungfraujoch

We went into the mountainous area of Switzerland. The view high up at the top of Europe was breathtaking. The scenery of the lakes was my favorite of all the places I went in these past few weekends. Right when we arrived at Interlake Ost station, we directly chose to go up to the top…

A weekend in France: Travel Tips

1.Prepare adequate cash with you. A lot of places do not take credit card. Street artists and some restaurants did not, even my hostel did not. I took out some cash there. My bank charges me transaction fee and currency exchange fee. 2.Always have a debit card. Just in case you will need to withdraw…

A night in Monaco: post-F1 & party

The sun came out at almost sunset. The city is just a huge party. The last train we took back to Nice was full of drunkards. Besides drunk people or people getting drunk in the city, the next obvious features are that the harbor is full of huge yachts and service trunk for F-1 is…

A weekend in France: Nice and Èze part

We arrived at Nice pretty late but we decided to walk around anyway. Our hostel is very close to the train station and only 15 minutes walk to the beach. The premenade next to the beach is full of restaurants and bars. Crowds gathered because there was a football game. Everybody was cheered up in…
