China has always been on my travel bucket list. So when an opportunity came up to go on exchange with a university there, I was definitely not going to let it pass. In a regular meeting with my professor one day, he asked if I would like to go for a short exchange programme to study at Hefei University of Technology. For a split second, I thought he was kidding, so I jokingly said “yes”. Little did I know he was serious and three weeks after that meeting, I found myself boarding a plane to China.
As a first-time traveller in China, I experienced many new things during my exchange and also ran into a few hiccups.
I climbed up to the school’s rooftop and was rewarded with this beautiful view.
