Published: 19.4.2014

Scotland: Land of Heather, Lakes and Sheep VI
Published: 14.4.2014
Fortunately, in south part of Lewis there are hills that flawlessly continue to Harris. Islanders also need wood so they planted there a small forest. Now I lay in a warm sleeping bag, in a tent attached to three trees, I listen to an ugly sound of drops constantly hiting my tent. Well, I have to get up eventually. After all I come here to learn about the islands, not to lay all day long.

China: How It All Began – Sysiphus‘ Toil
Published: 12.4.2014
At the airport, I get in the bus heading to my university. There are always traffic jam in Beijing. I have a lot of time to think. How it was back then. I had already settled, bought several necessities to get by… and then I just had been waiting for my roommates to show up.

Scotland: The Land of Heather, Lakes and Sheep V
Published: 7.4.2014
I have almost no water, no battery in my cell left, thus I travel to Mallaig, a port town from where ferries heading to Skye, Rum, Uist and other, smaller, islands depart. Right next to the port, there is a small train station. Its loading platform has not been used for a long time, obviously. It has two platforms.

China: How It All Began – Campus: Living in a Jungle
Published: 5.4.2014
I am waiting for tickets to get from the Beijing Airport. I have to just sit in a right bus. An hour later I am on place. I am really curious about my new place, campus and its surroundings. I have to remember my first campus in Chengdu two years earlier.

Scotland: Land of Heather, Lakes and Sheep IV
Published: 31.3.2014
Again, I woke up cold. This time it was not on the Orkneys. It was about half the way between Inverness and Perth, close to A9 road. Islands on the north, I had left 19 hours ago. Strong wind is blowing outside. Fortunately, it does not rain.

China: How It All Began – You Dont Live Here
Published: 29.3.2014
A queue to get a round stamp seems infinite. Next I have to just pick up my baggage, get on a bus that would take me from the airport and get at the campus. Everything according to the plan. Only with some extra time in queues or in Beijing traffic jams. Two years ago in Chengdu, if my memory is right, it was not that easy...

Scotland: Land of Heather, Lakes and Sheep III
Published: 24.3.2014
Cold and raindrops hitting a side of my tent wake me up. It would be better if there was no thermometer for knowing that it is just 1 degree above zero is not very encouraging. Fortunately, the wind got better. I quickly pack my tent hoping that my hands will not freeze.

Ireland: St Patrick's and Mass Craziness
Published: 21.3.2014
When more a year ago I bought tickets to Ireland, I did not realize that I would be there during the craziest event in this small island country. At first it was just strange that the tickets for three days are more expensive than for other days.

Scotland I: Land of Heather, Lakes and Sheep II
Published: 17.3.2014
After a half-an-hour ride I get off in Aberdour, a fishermen town in the Forth Bay. I have no idea where to go so I just follow arrows of the Fife Coastal Path. The reason is perhaps that it goes along the railway (and thus along the coastline as well).

China: Zoucheng: Just a Little Bit and the Circle Will be Complete
Published: 15.3.2014
Previous day in Chu-fu, sadly, in comparison to places that we've visited was not that interesting. Maybe if around the tomb of the great Confucius did not stand crowds of Chinese eager to make photos and if for passing the cemetery of the Kchung family was not required admission 40 yuans, the overall impression would be a little bit better.

Scotland: Land of Heather, Lakes and Sheep I
Published: 10.3.2014
Already in the summer of 2011, I was in Scotland for a few days visit. But this time it was different. And maybe even a little crazy. At this time I was a fresh adult student, only with a flight ticket to home, about three hundred pounds in his pocket and an overnight stay for the first night.

China: Qufu – Confuciu’s City
Published: 8.3.2014
While browsing in the diary, I found this note: "Qufu, arrival around 00:00." I remember that moment too well. It was quite cold, pitch black, and right at the exit of the station greedy taxi drivers came to us. Matter of principle had to be rejected. Then, however, had no choice but to hope that they were wrong and that you can get accommodation in and around the station ...

China: Heze
Published: 1.3.2014
Although, I was about to tell you how we lost accommodation in Heze, I should mention our train trip as well.

In contrast, a bunch of us sat constantly laughing gentlemen who were watching us a lot, and finally dared to ask where it actually are.
