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....

  1. I've only been back from Thailand a week and I'm already missing it so I can totally relate. I definitely want to go back to Hong Kong one day if only to visit Disneyland (maybe next summer?) and I have to say although I want to move back to Thailand so badly I agree the air is definitely better and more fresh in the U.K. the pollution out there is one thing I definitely do not miss!

  11. I can't wait to go back home to HK this winter! Always look forward to the trips - like you said, never have to pay for any of the meals when I'm eating out with family ;) I live pretty close to the Harbour so these photos make me excited for the trip!
