i’m back. i had a great time. really, really great. going to different countries is always inspiring and exciting, but hanging out with my sister 24/7 was the best part of the whole deal. i don’t think it’s something we have done properly (ie no child/parent/friend distractions) since we lived at our parent’s house(s) a million years ago. i’d forgotten how fun and relaxing time with her can be.
our first stop was hong kong, where i met em and stayed for 2 nights. i hadn’t been to hong kong for a while, and i loved it all over again – i felt like it had lots of new energy and great things going on everywhere i looked. highlights were:
- fancy lunch at l’ateleir de joel robuchon
- not so fancy (but equally delicious) dinner at local dumpling house
- bargain spotting a various markets
- drinking cocktails in the hotel lounge at any given opportunity (such a luxury for me).
see more of our hong kong adventures on my sister’s blog (who co-incidentally put up a very similar post while i was writing this one).
next up, pics of seoul taken with my new camera (goodbye crappy iphone pics, hello a-little-bit-less crappy proper camera pics).
