556. Hong Kong | Snapshots Part 1

Hong Kong
Its been a while since I did a post from my trip to Asia! I really hope I can get them all posted before my next trip lol. I still have over 30 posts lined up =\ Here are some random photos from Hong Kong. As many of you know, that's where my family is from so I go back quite often. Well more often than other countries. I realized this time when I was there that I didn't take as many photos as I used to there (in HK) because places and things are starting to feel more normal to me, the more I visit. I still took a lot of photos but not nearly as many as I did while at the other places from the trip where everything was new to me. Then I started wondering if it's still considered "travelling" after you've visited a place so many times/visit regularly. For me travelling is exploring new places, seeing new things and having new experiences. Now when I go to Hong Kong it feels less like travelling and more like..going back to my second home? Even though I don't actually own a place there lol. I only started thinking of it in this way during this trip there. I wonder how many times it takes to visit a place for it to feel like this. Not sure if you know what I mean. I really love going to Hong Kong though, equally as much as I love exploring a brand new city or country for the first time and experiencing culture shock.

In 2017 I don't have any international trips planned yet. So far only a trip somewhere in Canada during the summer which I'm super excited about, and a couple others pending..but hopefully I'll be able to go back to Europe and Asia again.

For now I'll focus on getting the rest of my Asia trip 2016 photos posted...

Hong Kong Victoria Harbour
Every time I visit Hong Kong, I must go to see the skyline at Victoria Harbour. It's my favourite skyline in the world, and I love walking around that area. The best spot to take photos would be up at the rooftop parking lot of Harbour City, as you get completely unobstructed views. I don't think tourists really know about that spot as there wasn't really anyone up there. Everyone else just takes photos at the main area below and you can't even capture the full skyline from there.

This was one of our first dinners in Hong Kong, where we went with our entire family there (or most of them). We went to a Thai restaurant and ordered many dishes.

  1. It's always nice to come "home" to a familiar place. I really love the energy of Hong Kong too!
