We decided to book our flights so that we could stop over in Hong Kong, unfortunately, Cathay Pacific don’t want you to do this for just a few days so we had to settle for one night in HK. It was good to break up the travel I think, but personally, Hong Kong is a bit much, it’s just so busy and hectic that you just don’t want to do anything.
There are probably places that you can go in Hong Kong where it’s not a million people moving at a million miles per hour all the time, but the centre of Hong Kong (Causeway Bay and Tsim Sha Tsui) certainly is not one of them. I managed to get down to the Avenue of the Stars to take some pictures of the Hong Kong skyline, they were okay, but not perfect because I didn’t have a tall tripod. We sort of just ate around Causeway Bay station not knowing anywhere good to go.
Transport and Accommodation
We used the MRT to get around short trips which is fast and convenient, and reasonably priced as well. We didn’t have much time so transport to and from the airport was just on the Airport Express which is a pretty good service. We stayed at the Mini Hotel in Causeway Bay, it’s a reasonably priced boutique hotel, I wouldn’t recommend it if you are not single or a couple, the rooms are not designed for privacy, the bathroom is really just a walled-off space on one side of the room. Quite nice though anyway.

Hey there loyal followers, all none of you I suppose. I’ve just got back from Europe a couple nights ago and am now getting on top of everything not work-related at home, in terms of stuff that happened while we were away any way, so I thought I’d post an update here.
Nothing much in this post, just that I will be adding my summaries of what we did over there as well as reviews of the transport, accommodation, and attractions, food (!), etc, etc, as well as some photos of course. I’m currently in the process of uploading photos to facebook, but that should be done in a day or two, and then I can start concentrating on uploading photos to flickr as well as adding stuff to here. We were only over there for two and a half weeks really, so there aren’t that many pictures to upload, but I hope that the ones that I did get are pretty high quality, it’s also Em’s birthday in a bit more than a month so I have to start organising that, as well as some other things, all in all, it’s going to be quite a busy end of the year for me, let’s hope everything works out well, and that 2014 is going to be something special. I’ll leave it at that for now, and hopefully upload something about Paris in the next week.
