Next Trip Booked! Hong Kong!

Our plan is to travel about once a month while we’re in the Philippines — both checking out international nearby places and other islands in the PI.  (Yes, what we’re saving in rent is going towards paying for a driver, a maid and trips!)  July might be the only month we don’t travel though, as Karl won’t get the 4th of July off.

So our next trip?  (Not that the title wasn’t a spoiler or anything.)  HONG KONG!

How exciting is that?  It’ll be the second place I visit in Asia, since moving to Manila was my first time in Asia ever (I don’t count our connection in Tokyo on the way here)!  Karl lived in Seoul, Korea, for 4 years with the army, so he has seen a lot of places in this part of the world, but he hasn’t yet visited Hong Kong.

We’ll get to see this skyline…

And this view…


And walk around these streets…

And while we’re there, we’re going to take advantage of the proximity and hop on a ferry to go here:

And walk around a square where the buildings look pretty similar to the buildings in downtown Rio, thanks to the Portuguese colonization…

Yep, we’re also spending a day in Macau!  It’ll be nice to understand all the street names!

Oh and the best part?  We leave in 2 weeks!

  7. So fun! I love Hong Kong. I hope you have a great time. I can’t wait to hear how you like Macau. We’ve never been there but have talked about going. Enjoy!

  8. OMG so fun!! I can’t wait to hear about it. I am going to go blind with envy reading your blog over the next several years 🙂 (aka–you better keep blogging!!)

    • Hahaha, don’t worry, I will! Hey, you can always come and visit! (Is that weird that I feel comfortable inviting people who I never met but feel like I have since I read their blog daily? It is, isn’t it?)
