beijing bound. part 1.

As promised, here's what I've been up to over the last week presented to you via video (and featuring one of my current on repeat artists: Lorde). It's crazy to think how short of a time I've spent in Beijing but judging by the above, I've covered a lot of ground.  I've visited three gardens, three lakes, six shopping complexes, two Apple Stores, purchased from Nike, Theory, COS and Uniqlo while  attending classes in the morning and squeezing in a gym session every second day. I've made a list of all the major sights and attractions in this city and making sure I don't miss a thing. There's nothing worse than coming home and realising you had all this time to visit somewhere but never did. And a sidenote: Any suggestions of secret hotspots in Beijing are more than welcome. I have to honestly say, Beijing isn't a city I've fallen in love with unlike Tokyo or Paris, it seems to be missing that something special (wait are we still talking about cities?) but I think I'm more in love with the idea of living in a different world, living a different life and I'm enjoying every moment. And trust me, there is plenty more to come - part 2 is already in the works. And now I'm off to do more sight seeing. Adventure time!

  1. Beijing looks great! That and Ella's voice.

    I think it's one of those cities you sort of grow to like with time... not that I've ever been there.
