Hong Kong Day 2

Day 2 was very uneventful, in fact, looking back at the photos i am trying to think what we did. We (me, sister and parents) went to see the other grandmother and then had dinner at a local restaurant and then after that, headed back and went to bed. That was about it really, quite a quiet second day, didn’t venture out to the city at all.

First, this isn’t alcohol, its tea in a glass……i guess they think it’s posh or something, personally, i think its tacky.

So I landed in a totally new airport than the one i left in. No more flying over roof tops with 5 inches to spare. Now arrive in a new Hong Kong International Airport courtesy of Sir Norman Foster.
More long distance walking !

Got to walk all the way down there again, but at least this time we have horizontal escalators !

Bridge

At the time it was the longest bridge in the world, it could still be today, it goes all the way from where the photo is taken, round some island, and continues to the distance.

We lived on the 7th floor in that building for about 3 years, my school was only about 15 mins walk away.

Hong Kong Trip – Departure

I know its a bit late as i did go to Hong Kong like 5 months ago but i didn’t have a blog then so in the coming week i am going to pretend that i am going today and do a blog on it. Partly because i want something to remember the trip by and partly i want to share.

Heathrow Terminal 3

So i’ll start fro the beginning, the first stop – Heathrow Terminal 3, we waited here for our plane, went to Starbucks in the distance as it’s a must for me 😀

The path to the gate was a long one, they really don’t tell you how long it was !!! Took about 20 mins to get to the gate, but as luck have it……we had the last one !
