Yes, I know, another travel post. Nope! I don't travel a lot, I don't think I have the time and money to do so. I wish I did though, that's why I'm creating my imaginary dream life through Instagram and my blog. Anyhow, taking a break from Thailand, I did go Hong Kong again. I'm basically there every month, that's how sick I am of Macau. My cousin asked me to tour her and her boyfriend around HK since me and Adrian knew a lot, so we went double dating just after New Year.
It was the 1st time for the 4 of us to go HK together and honestly, it was pretty fun! We started the day having ramen for brunch in a Japanese resto located in the same area as the Hong Kong - Macau Ferry Terminal. Afterwards, we walked to the central pier only to find that The Great European Carnival was there. It wasn't in our itinerary but we went anyways! We had so much fun, getting crazy and non-stop laughing the whole time. For some reason there was no place to store your belongings during the rides, that's why we got pictures from riding the roller coaster. In the end, we got to enjoy 3 rides and decided that it was enough for the day.
Our next destination was Lamma Island. None of us ever went there so I figured it'll be a great place to go to. We rode an open ferry from the central pier no.4 to Yung Shue Wan Village. Everything was beautiful and serene, the view, the villages and even the walkway we passed by on the way to Sok Ku Wan beach. It definitely felt like a long enough hike, 15mins approximately. I gotta say though that the hike was worth it! We spent our time lying on the sand, listening to music, and we even got to watch the sunset. It's been so long since I had such a relaxing day. Being in Lamma Island did not feel like HK at all; it was like being in a different country for someone who actually goes to HK a lot.
After Lamma Island we were all tired. We walked up to Lan Kwai Fong to eat in a noodle shop (I forgot the name) and separated with the two since we needed to get back Macau earlier and they still wanted to walk around. I wish I had more days like that, it was truly unforgettable.
