Fast Track to Beijing

A couple of weeks ago, I enjoyed a weekend in Beijing. This was not much an exploration trip but a reunion trek. I hadn’t seen one of my good friends that brought sunshine to my university life in four years. So, you can imagine we had heaps of catching up to get through so I […]

What They Don’t Tell You

I have had a fantastic weekend in Beijing to see one of the best humans I know. This is enough to keep you happy, right? We explored the ancient hutons, ate amazing dumplngs, danced the night away and caught up. This should be enough to keep me happy. But something happened. When I was back […]

Settling In..

It’s almost a month since I have moved to Harbin and I seem to be settling in now. I have my own apartment, I take the bus to school and pretty much every mode of transport available to go around, and I have become friendly with some of the people in my community. I might […]

Hello, Harbin..

After a year of plotting and pondering, I am finally in China. Harbin, to be exact. Leaving Durban was a bittersweet moment – you know, knowing that you finally did it. But, leaving the people you love behind. It doesn’t make it easier that I am not quite a fan of flying. I often choose […]

But, I could never really afford it – very common issue, I’d say. This year (27-29 May 2016), the universe was on […]

In the Woods Somewhere..

Today is one of those days when all I want is to hide away in the woods…somewhere. I need an escape from the chase, or lack thereof. It is probably time to take a step back and really look in to what I really want to do. I may be having an existential crisis (read: […]

My Mantra..

Spicy chai tea. Headphones in with shanti mantras calming me down as I attempt a stroll through the tornado – my mind. It is insane to think that last night, I had so much to say. The words in my mind kept me up and woke me up in the wee hours. Settle. I saw […]

Voyage of Self-Discovery..

It’s an on-going journey. You learn something new about yourself everyday; especially during times when you have to deal with people that are not on the same wavelength as you are. Quite frankly, my face normally tells you exactly what I think. It’s not ideal, really. Yesterday. Yesterday was one of the days when it […]

Day Dreaming..

Day dreaming of the endless possibilities, personal growth and adventures. It is quite an exciting start to the year with so many avenues lighting up almost simultaneously. So, it’s finally happening. A little bit of determination goes a l o n g way. Never stop dreaming. Then, never stop pursuing your dreams. No matter who […]
