After gaining the opportunity to spend a semester studying in the Netherlands, I thought why not make yet another trip of a lifetime out of it. The trip began by catching up with friends scattered across Hong Kong and Mainland China, whilst exploring two of the most scenic places the 'Middle Kingdom' has to offer - the Li River and Huangshan (Yellow Mountain).

I then proceeded directly to Delft, Netherlands in time to begin the semester at one of the most highly regarded technological institutions in Europe: TU Delft. The semester was spent: meeting locals, as well as students and expatriates from all seven continents, drinking great beer, riding a cheap bicycle across the flat countryside, playing tourist in nearby countries and of course a bit of uni work on the side (wink).

As soon as the semester wrapped up for the summer, I took a big white ferry to the UK where most members of my family converged from various parts of the world. Because the weather is so good in the UK (perfect sunshine for five days straight) I think I might move there. At this point, it was necessary to return back to Australia, but I was having too much fun, so I took a train most of the way to China along the notorious trans-siberian route to slow things right down and extend the journey; and seeing that I really wanted to check out the beauty of St. Petersburg, I thought why not go via Stockholm and Helsinki, which are also very beautiful. Moscow was...interesting and the train ride was epic. I also managed to stop in Irkutsk (Lake Baikal) and Ulaanbaatar which really do feel like they are at the end of the Earth. I capped the trip off with a visit to Tianjin in China to see my Canadian friend Mike and yet another visit to my home away from home - Hong Kong.
