A day in Godzilla’s playground!

Hong Kong was beautiful, exciting, eventful and fun.  I will miss that wonderful city and country, I will be back!  As my adventure is coming to an end, I have one more stop to make.  A quick stop in Tokyo to visit not only Japan, but some close family I have there as well! A fantastic way to end a great adventure. Upon arriving in Tokyo, it is evident that this city gets travellers from all over the world.  The welcome signs consist of many languages, including many that I can speak or read – Farsi, Arabic, English, and Spanish! I was met by an eager group of children that

Not exactly China!

Hong Kong, Pearl of the Orient, City of Life, Asia’s World City – so many names for one city.  A large busy city with impeccable public transportation and quite possibly one of the most vertical cities built.  The center of trade of hundreds of years, a major harbor, and history dating back to nearly 40,000 years ago, and people from every part of the world, Hong Kong is most definitely a sight to see.

Staff at Grid 9 SUICIDE SHOWERS! YAY!

Packing – it’s a love/hate relationship

Everyones favorite thing and worst nightmare. The excitement and anticipation of new travels and experiences, but the feeling of forgetting the unforgettables! The feeling of “did I pack my phone charger?” Or “what about my glasses?” And the worst one “my camera!” Everyone has had the wonderful feeling of forgetfulness. Happens to the best of us.  So this is not my first rodeo around airports or travels. It’s just my first rodeo going alone and “backpacking” through many countries where things we take for granted in the USA are harder to come by.  Deciding what to take along is half the battle. You want to pack light but at the
