Staycationing in Hong Kong for the holidays

Kung Hei Fat Choy!

I can’t believe it’s my third Chinese New Year in Asia. Partly through lack of learning centre holidays and partly through choice, I’ve actually spent my first one in the city. I was a little apprehensive at first as all of my friends were booked to jet off to foreign lands and I was worried I would be craving the Thailand beaches I’ve spent the last two CNY festivities on.

A quick rummage through my Lonely Planet book further backed this opinion and I decided to give it a shot.

Finding my Feet in Asakusa, Ueno and Shibuya.

The past year has seen me set myself some terrifying challenges. I’ve been pushing myself beyond boundaries I previously couldn’t even hope to reach. One of the biggest struggles for me in recent years has been as simple as being alone. Alone with my own thoughts and my own responsibility. This month I went past that boundary at lightening speed as I travelled to Tokyo completely alone, I truly was flying solo.
