I’m now an international cyclist

Since I brought the bike all the way from Western Australia to Auckland, New Zealand. I better use it.

So on a sunny Sunday afternoon I headed out to explore a little of Auckland. I went the wrong way and headed out the back of Auckland. Riding along the coast for 10kms was good. People here think 22 degres is hot.

Look forward to the next ride.

Hong Kong day 1 – we have landed

We have landed in Hong Kong!

We had no delays landing in Hong Kong. Collecting our bags and passing through immigration was a breeze. We spent the next hour and a half walking around the airport looking for a local Sim card. We eventually just picked one up at the Seven Eleven in the arrivals hall. Once sorting out the Sim card we tried to find the best way to the hotel. In the end we just caught a taxi.

I showed Rhian the Hong Kong port. There were shipping containers as far as the eye could see, size of the ships we as big as Perth CBD. We arrived at our hotel and the taxi driver got in trouble from the police for stopping outside the hotel. We checked in and upgraded our room. Rhian took pictures of the room. Once we settled in our room we went down to the bar downstairs and used up our free drink vouchers. The house sparkling wine was a hit with Rhian they had Hoegaarden on tap. We will be going there again. We stayed for a few drinks then went up a floor to the restaurant and had a 3 course meal. A bit pricey for Hong Kong, but we didn’t want to go far and it was still cheaper than home.

Then we went back to the hotel and went to bed. (Boring I know)

Hong Kong – Day 1 pre departure

Today is the day. Finally returning to Hong Kong after eight years. Looking forward to going back.

We have arrived at the airport and currently waiting in departures. Yesterday was frantic running all over Perth getting things organised for our trip. We didn’t start packing until after 7:30pm last night.

I miss Molly and Matilda already. However I’m sure they will be fine with the house sitter. Hopefully they behave and don’t cause too much trouble.

Next post will be from Hong Kong baby 🙂
