I miss Hong Kong

I started this blog during my time in Hong Kong. Far away from everyone and everything I knew, the two of us embarking on a whole new chapter to our lives. For the moment the UK seems to be grounding us, in more ways than one. Having lived on the other side of the world, suffered loneliness and emptiness at times, it is only when you look back you realise how much you have achieved while living away.
The world really isn't as big as it used to be, its easy to know what is happening in everyones lives no matter what country they're living in. I miss the innocent and unfamiliar minds of my HK friends, the exploring somewhere new everyday, the tests that we set ourselves and completed day to day, the outdoor lifestyle and the ways we treated our bodies.
Hong Kong is a place where everyone wants to do 'business', keen to succeed in life and make money. It is fast paced, hard, mean and lonely. Recently I have missed these attributes... I am determined to return to Hong Kong, there is still a part of me that wants to conclude our 12 month stay there, I therefore have six months remaining.

  1. I think I can relate....we spent some time away this summer but are back now but only for a while and I am determined to soak it all up in the time we have left here. There are times it is too much for me and I feel very happy to be leaving but I know there will be times when I will miss it when I'm gone....
