Hi there, I am Julia! I am an open-minded, easy-going and multicultural person who was born and raised in Shanghai and have spent the past 6 years in UK. I am fluent in both English and Chinese and am currently learning French and Italian. I am more than happy to share my cultures as well as getting to know new cultures. For me, food, people and culture are the three things that motivate me the most about travelling. I enjoy meeting new people, trying different cuisines, cooking, reading, hiking, travelling and learning new skills. I love animals (I have a dog in Shanghai and a cat in the UK, both are the cutest beings in the world), photography, food, nature, movies, novels, philosophy, science, languages, late-night deep chats, and the ocean amongst others. I have just graduated from the University of Cambridge and wish to take a break to explore more about the world outside of the paper. I have been travelling with families and friends to many places before, but this would be the first time for me to embark on a solo trip, and I am very excited about it! I am hoping to journal my travel along the way and share my experiences through blogging.
