After spending two days in Berlin I took my flight to Hong Kong via Moscow travelling for more than 18 hours and I finally arrived on 22nd of May in the Special Administrative Region. I was tired to death.

It is hot. Always around 30° Celsius – day and night. I like it, finally I don’t have to freeze anymore. However the heat requires me to sleep longer and when I wake up, I feel like as if a car had hit me several times during the night. But fresh and cold soy milk wakes me up and gets me ready for the day.

My new job already requires a lot of my attention, but it is very promising and I am very excited about the upcoming weeks.

The pictures show the view of the apartment where I am staying these days. It is a very fancy place and I enjoy staying here a lot.

Year 2013

It is difficult to summarize a whole year in one sentence. So I won’t do that. But it is a year which is marked with transitions in my life, but still leaves my status as a student unchanged.

Many things happened that I summarized for you:

  • Visited 6 countries (Japan, Korea, Germany, Poland, The Netherlands, Hong Kong)
  • Experienced 9 takeoffs in an airplane
  • Moved 3 times
  • Finished my studies abroad
  • Was a best-man for the first time in my life
  • Continued my commitment in AIESEC (became a trainer and joined the National Support Team)
  • Started the final sprint for my bachelor thesis
  • Got a meaningful part-time job at the Red Cross
  • Still in a happy relationship

When I am thinking of the future it is hard to tell what 2014 will bring. But it is certain that I will finally graduate and from that moment on many opportunities await.

PS: I also finally finished the story of my bike trip through Korea and uploaded some pictures.
