The last two days we’ve been in Hong Kong, we connected with Hillary and we have been watching the city and enjoying all the lights the harbor!
We had no problem finding Hillary and we met at the JW Marriott after we arrived in late from Shanghai there was a couple of problems with our flight as I had shown the concierge at our last hotel the airport and accident we pointed to the wrong flight and we ended up missing our flight due to going to the wrong airport and had to leave from a different airport it was stressful for a while, but China Eastern Air worked with us and we only had to pay $15 each to change flights. The problem was that flight was delayed forever and so we ended up losing a couple of hours. Wow It pays to know a little Chinese!
We had a blast going up to the top Victoria Peak to view Hong Kong although it was a tad bit cloudy!
Hillary’s friend Nicole was with us and so we ended up shopping around town and checking out the light show at night on the harbor. We ran into all of her other friends from her school who had just arrived and watched the harbor light up to music.
Hong Kong is so fast-paced and everybody’s moving at a rapid speed, iit actually feels like you’re not even in China. Hong Kong seems like its own country And even 20 years later you can still feel the British influence. It was so nice rolling into town and have people be able to understand us again. China has definitely been the one country that is most difficult to navigate in the world.
We loved just looking at the skyline, going to random shops, looking for deals. We quickly discovered prices are a lot higher here than it used to be. It used to be the could come here and get bargain after bargain after bargain, but now prices are high and the dollars weak.
More to come I’m going to get better at adding blog posts for this journey!
We are leaving China headed to Thailand now!
