China: Yantai


IAESTECOMPETITION | 15 november, 2017


A couple of weeks ago, I wrote an essay to participate in a competition that IAESTE holds every year. Today, they announced the winner. The price is 2000 SEK and a paid trip to Stockholm to collect the price. I wonder if they will pay my ticket from Seuol.


”Viktor tar hem första priset i IAESTES essätävling 2017 på grund av en originell layout, där nytänkande inte saknades! På ett annorlunda sätt introducerar han läsaren till sin nya, kulturella omgivning som väcker nyfikenhet. En tidningslayout med länkar till You Tube bl a gör läsandet mycket trevligt och personligt. Läsaren inspireras att ta chansen och ge sig ut på IAESTE-äventyr!”

HIKEVIEW | 9 september, 2017


Yantai, with its 7 million people, is considered a small town here in China. Both Shanghai and Beijing has over 20 million people. Thanks to Chinese National Day, I have a free week in October. Today I will book my trip to both cities for the ”Golden Week”, as it is called. Chinese National Day is celebrated on October 1st every year to commemorate the founding of People’s Republic of China. On that day, lots of large-scaled activities are held nationwide. I will discover everything.


This saturday, me and my friend Fiona went out for a hike. Have a look!


FROM OFFICETO LA CASA | 6 september, 2017

A reasonable Chinese man,

WandaVista a.k.a my office,

food markets everywhere,

and (these are his own words) a fat american on a bike (with a lot of Hi-Tech gear (those are my words)).


FOODOVERFLOW | 6 september, 2017

If you’ve ever been to a super market that has PicaDeli or something similiar, you know that it is harder to get the right amount of food than it is to bring the ring to Mordor. The problem back home is that you end up paying around £9 for a dull salad because you can’t rely on your skills regarding approximating weight.


In China, they have a similar thing, but the difference is that they will cook it for you, you get to mix your own sauce and the price is ridiculous. I payed 20 yuan (€2,5) and I couldn’t eat more than half of it. My obsession about pricing will make my eyes bleed if I keep on comparing.
