    Hong Kong - Victoria Peak

    October 4 in Hong Kong

    Hong Kong is a great city with shopping streets, skyscrapers and a lot of people on the one hand but also nature without any other people on the other side. We saw both sides of Hong Kong today and especially the view from Victoria Peak to downtown Hong Kong was amazing.

    Hong Kong ist auf der einen Seite eine Metropole mit Einkaufsstraßen, Wolkenkratzern und Millionen von Menschen. Auf der anderen Seite ist man mit der U-Bahn allerdings auch innerhalb von wenigen Minuten in der Natur. Wir haben heute beide extreme gesehen und sind begeistert von Hong Kong. Vor allem der Blick vom Victoria Peak auf Central Hong Kong ist wirklich beeindruckend.Read more

    10. Travelläum & 28. Geburtstag

    October 5 in Hong Kong

    The next month of travelling is over. 10 months ago we have started our trip. In the last month we travelled through Mongolia and China. Especially Mongolia and the desert Gobi was one of the best things we have done on our trip. China had awesome nature, but annoying, crowded cities. All the last month was full of new impressions.

    But today we have celebrated Janine's birthday as well, with a burger in Hong Kongs Hard Rock Cafe :)

    Der nächste Monat ist schon wieder vorbei. Vor nun 10 Monate begann unsere Reise! Im letzten Monat sind wir die letzte Etappe der Transmongolischen Eisenbahn gefahren, waren in der Wüste Gobi und sind durch China gereist. Vor allem die Zeit in der Mongolei war genial. China hat uns nicht ganz so überzeugt, vor allem weil es in den Städten viel zu voll ist. Die Natur ist hier aber zweifelsohne auch super schön. Sollten wir nochmal nach China reisen werden wir wohl die großen Städte meiden.

    Heute hatten wir aber zusätzlich noch Janines Geburtstag zu feiern. Es gab einen leckeren Burger im Hard Rock Cafe. :)

    Lantau Island - Tian Tan Buddha

    October 5 in Hong Kong

    In the mountains of Lantau Island, the biggest island of Hong Kong we hiked to the Tian Tan Buddha. It is very huge.

    In den Bergen von Lantau Island, der größten Insel von Hong Kong versteckt sich der Tian Ran Buddha. Wir haben ihn mal aus der Nähe betrachtet und er ist wirklich riesig.

    Hong Kong

    June 20 in Hong Kong

    After a week in Hong Kong we had lots of memories and tons of photos. We ate dim sum, explored the city, ate dim sum, explored the beaches, ate dim sum, watched the Dragon Boat races, ate dim sum... what else... did I mention eating dim sum?

  • Day3

    We slept in today and woke ready for adventure. What a mixed day we've had, it will take more than one post to share with you! We caught a ferry from our hotel in Tsim Sha Tsui to Hong Kong Central, then another one to Lantau island. A long bus ride up the lush Green hills took us to a town called Ngong Ping where we looked at tourist shops and had lunch.

    The big SURPRISE was that Sam and Ruby could both use chopsticks really well! Better than Mum and Dad!

    Next ... off to the big Buddha.

    Up to the big Buddha

    August 10 in Hong Kong

    The big Buddha is up so high on a mountain in the clouds. On the way there are 12 statues of generals. We climbed a LOT of steps and it was super hot but we went past all the people resting on the stairs and had an ice cream at the top.

    What a wonderful view from the top! And the Buddha was beautiful. We got to go inside the monument but weren't allowed to take photos in there. People were praying to a special relic: there was a tiny crystal that was found at the place Buddha went into another realm. That's cool.Read more

    How hard is it to get home??

    August 10 in Hong Kong

    Our journey "home" to the hotel started really well.

    The cable car from the top of the mountain was awesome! The plants were so lush and it didn't matter that it rained, we were in the clouds! We saw a bridge that is being constructed between Hong Kong and China. Pretty long! It was cool to catch the train back, so we could count many modes of transportation for the day.

    Then... It got tough. We got off the train and we were stuck inside a huge shopping and hotel place where the maps wouldn't show an exit. Maybe they wanted people to just keep shopping. Even when we found a door to the outside we couldn't walk on the roads. It was weird! And pouring with rain. We tried lots of ways out and Mum and Dad asked for help a lot, finally we found a way to get a taxi. It was great to get back to our hotel, we didn't mind that we were so wet! Mum went exploring and brought back food from the Hong Kong back streets. Lots of neon lights!Read more

    Ocean Park part 1

    August 13 in Hong Kong

    What a big, fun, hot amazing day we have had. The Ocean Park is a huge theme park on the other side of Hong Kong island. You have to get around it by cable car or train, it's so big. We did a lot of walking too!

    The rides were great. Sometimes we had to wait a long time but mostly it wasn't bad. In between we went into the South Pole and North Pole exhibits to cool down!

    Sam and Mum went on the scariest rollercoaster with multiple loop-the-loops. Sam was the littlest in the line, just making it to the height limit, and everyone thought he was very cute and brave. Mum screamed the loudest!

    We have lots of amazing animal pictures to share next...

    Ocean Park part 2- some firsts!

    August 13 in Hong Kong

    Incredible animal pictures will show you for themselves. For the very first time we saw in real life a sloth, walrus, huge jellyfish, Arctic fox and PANDAS!!!!! It was very special.

    The male panda was awake and eating, which is lucky for us as they sleep more than 12 hours a day. The female panda was sleeping. She is going to have a baby next year so she needs her rest.

    Hong Kong at last!!

    August 9 in Hong Kong

    It's hot here! Some proper summer. Ruby nearly fell asleep in the car from the airport. Hong Kong is so different to Melbourne. Our hotel room is on the 10th floor which feels high for us, but lots of buildings are much bigger. And there are so many people everywhere! Mum and Dad got bothered a lot by people wanting to sell clothes and watches on the street, Sam and Ruby didn't like how that felt. But Hong Kong is supposed to be very safe so we are so happy to be here.

    We found a shop with big jars of strange ingredients for Chinese medicine, and explored some busy streets. Then it was sooooo good to jump in the pool. A big sleep is what we need tonight. What will we do tomorrow?
