The mid-term break has passed so fast. During our two week vacations, we travelled to different places in Vietnam. First of all, we made a boat trip in Halong Bay. It consisted of a wonderful canoe tour in a bay and a bicycle tour in a little village. During our night on the boat, there has been a typhoon which caused a short power breakdown.
After that, we hiked in rice fields in Sa Pa. But it was more like climbing than hiking because it was really muddy. Fortunately, the inhabitants helped us slipping down various hills and crossing waterfalls.
Then, we went to Hanoi: We spent our evenings on the various night markets where you can mainly buy little snacks and faked clothes. Apart from that, we also tried the famous and delicious Vietnamese coconut coffee.
The next days, we spent on the island Phu Quoc. There, we relaxed before we took a flight to Ho Chi Minh City. We visited a pink church and also some night markets.
After these wonderful two weeks, we had to go to university again. The university gained on us very quickly because we had to work on our ICAs during the mid-term break as well. But there are only few ICAs to go! Apart from that, we soon have to study for our exams in August. I have to pass four exams: Consumer Behaviour, Corporate Finance, Human Resource Management & Practices and International Finance & Treasury.
We do not only travel to other countries but we also explore Singapore. We participated in a Night Safari in Singapore Zoo. It started with a animal show and then, we explored the Zoo by train in the night. We saw for example elephants, tigers and lions.
Another day, we have spent in Universal Studios. The amusement park has different theme parks which all depict movies like for example Shrek, Madagascar or Jurassic Park. The rollercoasters followed the movie themes as well.
Last weekend, we travelled to Hong Kong. Its skyline is not only amazing by day but also by night. We enjoyed the skyline on the Victoria Peak and on the Lion’s Rock Peak.
The semester abroad passed really fast by now and there are only 1 ½ months left in Singapore. Therefore, I will write about the exams and my return to Germany in the next article.
