哈嘍大家好,我是段延麟,今年十七歲,是香港城市大學會計系大三的一名學生。這已經是我住在學生宿舍的第三個年頭,現在我是賽馬會群智堂的一名宿生。

來自北京的我從小就喜歡旅遊。我享受在不同城市中體驗生活的感覺,那種新奇和挑戰的感覺讓我對每一天的新生活都充滿期待。我的足跡遍布日本,韓國,新加坡,菲律賓,泰國等等亞洲國家。去年六月,我更是跟隨會計系遊學團體驗了英國德國以及盧森堡的文化。上個學期,我又一次踏上旅程,作為交換生第一次來到美洲大陸,先後在美國的匹茲堡,紐約和華盛頓等城市遊歷學習。現在,我正在越南峴港的沙灘上寫下這篇自我介紹!

旅行對我而言,不僅僅是身體走在路上,更是靈魂走在路上。每一次踏出自己熟悉的城市和國家,都是一次開拓視野,積累經驗的過程。我豐富的旅行經驗為我帶來了國際化的視野,也讓我與捨堂中的國際學生以及交換生有了更多的共同話題,成了很好的朋友。

如果你也是個旅行愛好者,歡迎來與我交流!

Hi everyone, my name is DUAN Yanlin, Alan, from Beijing. I am a 17-year-old junior, majoring in accounting. This is my third year living in the student residence. I am currently a resident in Jockey Club Academy Hall.

I love traveling when I was pretty young. I enjoy experiencing different lifestyles in different cities. This challenging but interesting feeling brings me energy every day. I have been to a lot of Asian countries, such as Japan, Korea, Singapore, Philippine and Thailand. During the past summer vacation, I participated in the study tour held by my home department and paid a visit to UK, Luxembourg and Germany. Last semester, I packed my bag again and flew to the American continent. Being an exchange student, I studied and travelled around Pittsburgh, New York and Washington DC in United States. Now, I am lying on the beautiful beach in Da Nang, Vietnam and writing this self-intro to all of you!

For me, traveling means more than a physical journey. It is a spiritual refresh as well. I feel so excited every time I step out of my comfort zone, and choose to broaden my horizon outside of it. Apart from being more international and culturally-diverse, I also get a lot of common topics with other international students and exchange students living in the hall. Talking about something that they are familiar to helps me start a conversation and finally become really good friends with them!

If you are also a big fan of traveling, do come and talk to me! I am sure we will have a great conversation!
