... but now - so many ideas, with so little time. What will I do??
Before heading off on a trip, especially one that I will be travelling solo, I like to look into the destination with more detail and see how much I can cram into my days. In preparation for my upcoming trip to Hong Kong, a 4 night stopover on the way to India, I splurged on a Lonely Planet guide to add to my ever-expanding collection. Only problem now is that I have no idea how I'm going to fit everything that I'd like to do in that time.
I figure if I put it in writing, I'll then have more motivation to act it out and get my butt around to all these wonderful places. So far my short list for Hong Kong is as follows:
Temple Street Night Market
Man Mo Temple
Day trip to Macau (Ruins of the Church of St. Paul, St. Lazarus Quarter, Macau Tower)
Tsim Sha Tsui waterfront/ Avenue of Stars/ Symphony of Lights
Tian Tan Buddha
Hong Kong Museum of History
10,000 Buddha's Monastery
And... trying to pick one of the hikes (too many to choose from!)
This list seems to be ever growing. It's going to be fun trying to figure out what to do in my one free day in New Delhi - in the end I'm sure I'll just end up wandering the streets, cause sometimes that's the best way to discover a place. Just wing it and see. I may have to take that aspect on travelling in Hong Kong, there's a lot more to the place than an abundance of skyscrapers.
Only a month till take off!
