It seems like every time I write a new article, I am starting with an apology for the length of time since my last one. Let’s change things up a bit this time and skip that!
This summer has been the busiest season for me yet. Ever since I arrived home from Asia it has been a madhouse. I have so many amazing images and great stories to share from my month abroad, but I have had no time to sort images, let alone put my ideas into words!
As I relax in my suite in the Dominican, finally done shooting, I have found some time to write the second part of my Asia excursion.
It was not my first time in Hong Kong, but it is a destination which you could visit ten times and not do the same thing twice. There is so much to do and see!
Since it was my third time here, I decided to try and experience the city like a local. I visited local markets, ate at local restaurants and got a real taste of the city this time.
Of course no visit to Hong Kong is complete without a visit to the peak or a ride on the Star Ferry across the harbour. I could also not resist the shopping and I actually had to ship a crate home with my purchases so I didn’t have to lug them through all of southeast Asia!
Enjoy the images, more are coming…
