HOME IS WHERE THE HEART IS

Honey I'm home! I am back and refreshed from my trip back to Hong Kong. More often than not, I usually travel back with my family where we do lots of family stuff (bonus - I never have to pay for lunch/dinner!). This visit on the other hand, was a solo trip back and these are always fun too, even though I had to run like a mad lady to get my connecting flight at Frankfurt to HK. Seriously getting off one plane and then sitting on the next one within 20 mins was an interesting experience. Though, I think the extra luggage space (hello 2 cases/46kg!) was worth the minor stress. I had lots of dinners and lunches with my family, got to see a uni friend get married and caught up with other friends I've not seen in a few years and check out a couple of Art exhibitions. I got to hang out with my buddies Sam and Kit (we visited HK Disneyland and had THE best time!) and even managed to see Michelle towards the end of my stay. I adore being back in HK and I always feel lucky to be able to call the city home too - even if it's only for 2/3 weeks at a time per year. I often think of ways I can be there more permanently as it's the land where all of my favourite things exist (food, shopping, friends, family - what's not to love?). However, I must admit that it's good to be back home in the UK too with no humidity/heat to contend with, lovely fresh air and being able to fully embrace sweater weather and large mugs of English tea again. Though as ever, I am itching to be back out east again. This trip, my photos were mainly confined to my phone, so an Instagram round up is in the works, so stay tuned....

These photos were taken what feels like forever ago now and it makes me smile just looking at these photos. They were taken way back at the beginning of Summer when I visited Brighton with a whole bunch of friends on a perfect sunny weekend. It was a brilliant weekend and of course my friend Sally (who now lives in Australia - miss you dude) and I couldn't resist taking photos in front of this graffiti wall. I definitely need to make a visit to Brighton again when I am back from Hong Kong - in fact, I'm probably sitting on my flight back to the UK watching the in-flight entertainment right about now wishing I was still firmly still on HK soil!
