27 Apr, 2019 in HK Places

After all these years in Hong Kong there are still areas and university campuses I have not been to. One such example is the Education University of Kong campus, up near Tai Po Market. It is only recently that I made my way up to the northern part of Hong Kong to finally visit that […]

12 Jan, 2019 in Kunming

Yunnan province was one of my highlights so far touring around China, and the base was Kunming. Dali, Lijiang, and the smaller towns in Yunnan are the real attraction, but Kunming also has a few attractions worth visiting. I spent a day walking around the central area and exploring, the main attraction there – shopping […]

20 Aug, 2018 in Paris

During the summer of 2018 I was invited to visit Paris Nanterre University and was hosted by some of the local professors. I arrived after several hectic weeks of student demonstration, so the campus was severely damaged, and filled with graffiti, all quite shocking. That tragedy aside, the old campus is quite compact and easily walkable, […]

10 Mar, 2018 in Cambridge

In my last visit to the UK I had a few days to explore the lovely old town of Cambridge and venture into some of the inner courts of the college campuses with a host professor. During that time there was also an open day for the university, so there was unrestricted access to some […]

26 Sep, 2017 in Cambridge, Visions

Cambridge is one of the top universities in the world, and one of the first, with centuries of top notch academia and some of the world’s greatest minds. It is also a very pretty university/college town with lovely old architecture and pretty canals. I’ve been wanting to visit for a very long time, but only […]

14 Sep, 2017 in Vienna

To wrap up my conference trip to Vienna, I’ll take you on a walking tour I did on the last two days around the Vienna canals, parks, and university area. The two days had very different weather, so you’ll be able to see rainy and cloudy Vienna and blue-skies Vienna.   Shall we?   Canals […]

29 Jun, 2017 in Rotterdam

I recently visited Rotterdam for a quick visit to see Erasmus University on a weekend. Dutch academia is doing very well, and Erasmus is one of the more modern Dutch universities that has been climbing up the world rankings, especially when it comes to the business school. It’s young, diverse, English friendly, and quite international. […]

18 Aug, 2016 in HKUST, Visions
Hong Kong University of Science and Technology HK Visions (15)

I recently revisited my old home of Hong Kong and stayed over as a guest on the Hong Kong University of Science and Technology (HKUST) campus at the new hotel next the new buildings for the business school and the Institute of Advanced Studies (Conference Lodge). Although I know this campus and the Sai Kung […]

2 Jun, 2016 in Lisbon
University of Lisbon campus (2)

In my last visit to Lisbon I had a meeting at the Catolica Lisbon School of Business & Economics and so decided to make half a day out of it to explore the nearby area and the University of Lisbon campus. It was a gloomy day that didn’t allow for a full appreciation of campus and it […]

24 Mar, 2016 in Eastern Spain
University of Girona Spain wall walk (6)

Girona was my first stop on the eastern Spain trip, since that’s where cheap Ryan Air flights land, but Girona is definitely deserving of a visit. It has a lovely historic Jewish quarter area and the panoramic views from the University of Girona campus from the top hill are terrific. Wanting to get a sense of […]
