On the move in: Germany



29/12/2012: Above the clouds

And there it is again: the feeling of infinite freedom and adventure. After 2.5 incredible years of study in the Netherlands, my friend Andy and I are now sitting in the air plane in the direction of Hong Kong. An exchange semester full of new impressions and experiences is awaiting us. Since the semester officially only starts on the 7th of January we have time to settle down and explore our new home. Fortunately we can directly move into our rooms on the campus. However, I can’t wait to meet the other students and see who I will be spending the next half year with. Somehow I’m already sure that we will have a great time together.

30/12/2012: First impressions…

After a sleepless night we arrived in Hong Kong this afternoon. We took the bus from the airport to get to our school which allowed us to look around and get a first impression of the city. Hong Kong looks promising as the cityscape overall seems green, neat and tidy.

Our future domicile is situated out-of-town and the campus is much bigger than expected. It offers many sport facilities such as tennis courts, football fields, two swimming pools and a gym – certainly a spur to become more active any time soon. We also already made friends with some communicative and outgoing locals who invited us to eat a bowl full of meat with them. A word and a blow: our first cultural exchange in Hong Kong!

What a beautiful campus.

I’m Jacky, a 27-year old globetrotter from Germany. However, I usually can be found almost anywhere but in my country of birth. Until not long ago I was on an important mission in Australia to chase the sun, adventures, good chats, unforgettable moments and the beauty of this world.
Moreover, I’m a hippie at heart, recently did my yoga teacher training in India and just love to bury my nose in a good book. I’m mostly exploring countries on a low budget and often can be found with a colourful sign and a big smile in my face on the side of the road, trying to hitchhike from A to B.
