So after the first week of Hannah and Lenk being in Beijing we decide to final start our journey southward. We left my apartment at 7am to get our train from Beijing South station bound for Nanjing. We will be staying there for a couple of days before going to Shanghai. It has been an incredible first week but also an emotional one. Many good friends as well as those very close and dear to me have left Beijing to return to their countries leaving me with a rather bittersweet sensation. But this is part of life - change is an inevitable yet necessary thing. I have had a wonderful two years in Beijing but it's time to move on. I look forward to the next few weeks travelling with two of my best friends before starting a new life (hopefully) in Shanghai where I will start work in September. Bring on the good times and whatever is round the corner!
