    Zwischenstopp in Hongkong

    November 19, 2017 in Hong Kong

    1,5 h nach Amsterdam und gleich der erste Asiate neben mir.
    Dann Umsteigen in Amsterdam.
    Nun hieß es 10,5 h Flug. Abendessen war oke... Fleischbällchen mit Kartoffelbrei und dann Filme schauen, so solls sein.
    Nach 3 h Schlaf zum Frühstück aufgewacht, dann sind wir auch schon bald gelandet.
    In Hongkong sein Gate zu finden ist gar nicht so einfach, aber es hat geklappt. Jetzt sitz ich hier übermüdet und warte auf meinen Flug nach Taipei.Read more

    Lång dags färd mot natt

    March 1, 2017 in Hong Kong

    5 timmars väntan i Hongkong för flyget till London som avgår 01:00. Sedan drygt 13 timmar innan Heathrow och så småningom Kastrup. Det har redan varit en lång dag även om första biten med båt från Hayman Island var helt OK. Vi hann till och med äta en tidig frukost så vi ska inte klaga, dessutom är utsikten från frukostbordet magnifik. På flyget från Hamilton Island till Cairns lyckades vi också få en bild från "vår" ö och även ytterligare en bit av Stora Barriärrevet från ovan. Det känns lite svårt att vända hemåt efter alla fantastiska upplevelser på vår långa resa. Vi ser ändå fram emot att plåga er alla med oändliga historier om våra upplevelser, - vi ses snart!Read more

    Högt upp i det blå

    March 1, 2017 in Hong Kong

    Så har den långa hemresan börjat och den började med att flighten från Hamilton Island blivit 3,5 timme sen! Inte idealt så här i början av resan. Men efter snart 8 veckor på resande fot har vi lärt oss att gå in i "Travel mode" och bara go with the flow. Båtresan från Hayman Island bedövande vacker precis som flygningen till Cairns med stora barriärrevet under oss. Visar några bilder men de kan på intet sätt förmedla hur fantastiskt det är😍😊
    Nu sitter vi i Hong Kong i en ganska usel Lounge på marmorbänkar, de få bekväma stolarna är redan upptagna 😓
    Och här är vi fast i 5 timmar😤😤 - så ja, så ja, travel mode var det 😉

    2 Tage Anreise mit vielen Stationen

    August 22, 2017 in Hong Kong

    Es ist wieder so weit - wir Touren wieder!

    Am Sonntag Morgen beginnt der ganze Plausch mit früh Aufstehen, Auto vollpacken, Kinder wecken, losfahren.... unsere Erste Station ist meine Mama in der Schweiz, da dürfen Elly und Tjana wiedermal Urlaub machen. Die 2 werden die Schweiz schon aufmischen 😎

    Quentin, Simone und ich lassen uns noch durchfüttern und werden schliesslich Abends in unser Flughafenhotel in Rümlang gefahren. Dort treffen wir auch das erste Mal langjährige Treue Kunden, es hat Spass gemacht und es hat uns sehr gefreut K&R 😉 Vielen Dank für diesen Abend.

    Am Montag ging dann um 10 unser Shuttlebus zum Flughafen Zürich - sozusagen meine frühere zweite Heimat 🤣 Wir geben kurz unsere Koffer ab - in der Hoffnung diese am Ziel wieder zu bekommen.
    Unser Magen treibt uns dann noch auf die Futter Suche und mit einer leckeren Focaccia zum Frühstück lässt sich dann gut fliegen.

    Quentin - und ja auch ich - freuen uns über das freie Wlan und so geht die Zeit bis zum Einsteigen rasch um und es geht los. Cathay Pacific CX382 bringt uns gut quer über Asien nach Hong Kong.... hier sitzen wir nun und haben bereits 8:10 morgens. In 2 Stunden geht es weiter.... dazu mehr dann aber später....

    Day 77 - The End Of The Adventure

    April 25, 2017 in Hong Kong

    This is it. The end. The last of 77 days and 77 blog entries.

    We woke up in Hong Kong and went for brunch about 15 steps from our hotel. It was hard to decide if today should be a lazy day or an action packed day but seeing as we did most of the tourist attractions the first time we were here the former kind of won out.

    We sent our big bags off on the airport express, a great service where you can check in bags from a couple of train stations across HK and they'll (hopefully, we've not got back to the UK yet) get on your flight without the need to lug them around all day.

    We went for a walk around Nan Lian Gardens. The gardens were set up in 2006 and are aiming to become a UNESCO site. It's patrolled by an army of staff who want to stop all fun. Not limited to, and this is spelt out on signage, frolicking, bawling and brawling. We saw people stopped from taking fun group pictures and using selfie sticks by the guards. We stayed on the right side of the garden law and walked around uninterrupted. We went to the rockery where each rock had some profound calligraphy attached to it - see photos. We visited a room of beautiful ceramics made by a group of students and a room of important spiritual buildings made out of wood. It drizzled throughout. We also stopped by the most densely populated koi carp pond I've ever seen which was fascinating to watch for a while.

    Once the walk was done we surpassed ourselves in the over ordering stakes at a ''modern Chinese restaurant'. We did however manage to eat it all before heading off to visit the Chi Lin Nunnery. No nuns to be spotted but more Buddhist statues and rocks with poignant phrases. After that we were at a bit of a loose end so what else was there to do but hit Soho and happy hour cocktails for a few hours? £3.50 sangrias helped soften the blow of returning.

    Alas the time came and we're currently sitting at the airport. We went crazy and paid to come into the lounge so showered and watered we await our flight home. The lady serving noodle soup gave me extra fish balls because I wanted 'everything'. There's maybe some deep and meaningful rock worthy life message there.

    The trip has been amazing and as the cliché goes, time flies when you're having fun. The scary part is that we'll go back to normal life almost like nothing happened. I'm not going to miss the packing/unpacking, the sniffing of clothes to decide if they're re-wearable and the constant use of TripAdvisor to dictate my daily activities but that's about it. We're looking forward to seeing our friends and family and our reliable bed and shower. Plus the ability to cross roads safely and not worry about bumping monks.

    Thank you to everyone (all 6 of you I reckon) who have been reading the blog and commenting on what we've been up to. It made writing it worthwhile. Hopefully we'll be back for another trip one day. See you soon UK.

    Helen and Matt xxxx

    Bangkok to Hong Kong

    October 21, 2015 in Hong Kong

    Bleary eyed we rose in the pre-dawn darkness to tentatively eat a breakfast our still sleeping stomachs reluctantly accepted. Through the silent streets by taxi, we bade farewell to the humid heat and entered the bright and airy cocoon of airport controlled atmospheres, which would accompany us until we arrived in London.

    Daylight steadily motioned across the departure gate's glass panelling, illuminating our plane as we boarded. Nestling down into our seats we settled into the few hours it would take to cross back over the countries we had visited and land in Hong Kong to transfer planes.

    Both tired but not ready to sleep we watched with surprise as a man, seated across the aisle and donning what appeared to be liberated hotel slippers, broke into heavy snoring within one minute of takeoff. However his symphony did not last long before he was asked to change seats to accommodate the whims of a young girl who did not want a window seat after all.

    Entering the cavernous terminal at Hong Kong we changed the last of our remaining money to buy a picnic of Starbucks pie and muffin over brown napkins, the taste still lingering as we were called to board...

    Hong Kong Take 2

    October 14, 2017 in Hong Kong

    Finally made it to Hong Kong, And finally had some luck.

    Scored a seat between us on the plane, so I was able to get really comfy. And I actually slept almost the entire flight. Pretty awesome I would say.

    Landed and got through security in pretty quick fashion, bought a huge coffee, and am now sitting at the gate passing time. No attempt of weird food this time. Just going to enjoy my book and the wait.

    Once again, making sure to not cough in the airport as they are announcing that anyone feeling sick or off will need to report to airport staff... eek.

    Airport Hong Kong

    November 11, 2016 in Hong Kong

    #Zwischenstopp2: "X-Man Apokalypse" muss man nicht gesehen haben😉. Whisky-Cola 🍸schmeckt auch in der Luft. Das Essen ist bis jetzt auch lecker. Habe meine Uhr vor dem Flug nach Hong Kong auf neuseeländische Zeit umgestellt um mich langsam umzustellen.

    Zudem habe ich nun eine Mitreisende. Nele (gerade nach Konstanz gezogen und fertig mit dem Studium zur Grundschullehrerin) saß neben mir. Sie fliegt auch nach Auckland. Also muss ich die 6h am Flughafen nicht alleine überbrücken. 😎👌🎉Read more
