“I must admit that I've been badly bitten by the travel bug and have no immediate plans to visit SA before my course ends, but I'll definitely be back for goodthereafter. I look forward to coming home and applying all this knowledge,” she said from her new home in Florence, Italy.

She tells us she’s been studying between two campuses, the one in Florence and the other in Shanghai and the two cities are worlds apart.

“China, as you know, is a tightly controlled Communist country so I have zero access to social networks (Twitter/Facebook/YouTube) and even Google searches are limited. At first I suffered from severe withdrawal, but soon got used to the isolation.

Now I actually quite enjoy not having my phone beep all day and night,” she says.

Noni, who’s travelled extensively in Europe and very little of Asia says China has been the most exciting experience for her, even without the social media.

“Other than having to adjust to the local food, the city is incredibly fascinating, fast-paced and cosmopolitan.”

While Noni misses her family and friends, she says hopes to return to SA renewed with the professional growth and international experience she set out to achieve.
