In China, part one: Onward to China

A new blog post series begins!

My 22 days lasting trip to China, participating in the Experience Go in China program, will start in a few more hours. In about 12 hours, I’ll arrive at Beijing airport. I’ve packed most of my luggage already, but have yet to check if I really have all I need with me.

I have again somehow put off writing here more regularly, even though I’ve had plenty of time — I had an idea, just now, that I’d write a post series here about my experience in China while I’m there. If the program schedule is similar to that of 2009 when I last participated, in the morning, from 10:00 to about 12:00 Beijing time, there will be a lecture from a teacher. Then there’s a lunch break, and from about 12:00 to 14:00 everyone plays a game with another participant or with a teacher, which is afterwards reviewed by a teacher. If there are lectures with especially interesting content, I’m thinking of writing something here about them — and as I’m likely to play games with the professional teachers, too, I might as well post some of those games here with comments!

Last time, in 2009, I ended up getting almost no physical exercise while in China, which may have had a negative effect on my playing ability as well. Maybe I should go jogging every morning before the lecture?

Feel free to ask anything about my trip to China, or for specific topics for future posts – I’ll do my best to respond in kind!

  1. Good luck and have fun.
    Physical exercises are good for mind, I’ve heard that several times from competent people. I also started jogging at mornings week ago, by the way. I run ~2,7 km now, later I’ll think about 3-5 km. Important part is running every day without exceptions to make it a habit.
    Would be nice to find someone who will run with you, then it’s much harder to convince yourself to skip.

  2. Hi Antti, it’s so nice to see your blog here. I will go to Beijing this summer, too. Wish you have a nice journey in China!
