Some pictures of the campus of Sun Yat-sen University. Looks so beautiful! Really excited to go there now! 


The greatest news this season is that Skultuna is launching their most favourite products in copper. Love it! The pots and candleholder gets a new colour, and I can promise you that this will be a success and this years Christmas present. 


Two weeks to go! Can hardly understand that I'm about to move to the other side of the world, to a country I've never been to before. New tastes and flavors, another language and culture. An adventure. 

I have worked my last day in the store and now I have two weeks to prepare myself and the people around me. Finally got the time to pick up my visa at the visa centre. While waiting I found myself all caught up in the Chinese conversations at the counters. Its truly an amazing language. Can't wait to get to know it better! 




Time for a little update about the preparations. I have finally booked hotels in both HK and GZ. This feels so good since it has been something that kept nagging in my mind. First of I booked the hotel in GZ. We are a bunch of students who already got in touch with each other and we decided on a hotel really close to the university for the first week. Hopefully we will manage to find a shared apartment during that time. Feels great that we will all be living in the same place in the beginning so we can hang out and get to know each other. 


But before heading into the mainland of China, I will do my own little trip to HK. A little bit of acclimatization before the real adventure can begin. But boy was it hard to find a decent hotel in that city?! I have been searching a lot the last couple of days, and I can tell you there is a lot of hotels to choose from. Although I have never in my life seen so small hotel rooms before. Seems like they could pretty much charge anything for these cubes. When I finally new a little bit more about what and where, I started to read the recommendations, and that’s when I panicked. Ants, cockroaches, dirt, unsafe areas, broken things, un service minded people… well all of a sudden I realised that I had to pay almost the double price in HK to get something clean and safe. I surrendered and booked a hotel my good friend Niklas recommended a couple of weeks ago. It is a well known hotel chain and it is located pretty close to the centre of HK. Could not be better, hopefully.


First picture is from the HK hotel and the second one from GZ, but i guess they have photoshopped them both a lot..
