I fell off the grid for a little while and literally entered a new time zone.
It’s amazing how your life can change in an instant. For the past month, I have called Shenzhen in China my new home. Where does one even begin to tell of the escapades, stories and experiences encountered thus far on this new journey. Well to sum it up, it is absolutely crazy. I find myself having long conversations with the locals only for me to tell them in the end “Méiyǒu Chinese, I do not understand.” However, what I’ve learnt; smiling and laughing still remains a universal language. There are many challenges that come with this big move but you have to face and accept each with a positive attitude and mind set.
Recently I crossed the border to Hong Kong for a quick visit which is literally a train ride away. I did some touristy sightseeing and the views did not disappoint. I visited Victoria’s Peak (as per the images), stood in the middle of time square, climbed 250 steps to see the Tian Tan Budha on Lantau Island, walked through Ladies Market and of course ended the night with drinks on the rooftop of Cé La Vi.
This is just a snippet of the latest 156 travels but I hope to keep you posted on my journey with thoughts and even tips if you decide to venture abroad solo.
