So on my very last day in Hong Kong I decided to see some more temples since they are so fascinating to me. First I went to the oldest temple in Hong Kong which was called Man mo temple. I wasn't super impressed since it was very small and sooo smoky from all the incense that they burn in the temple. I know it's very sacred and stuff but gosh. What a bad headache I got.... Haha where was the fire alarm?? Haha
Then I walked around downtown, doing sim window shopping. I couldn't but anything since my bag is already on maximum weight... Haha but I bought just some small souvenirs that don't weigh anything.
Then I took the train north to go to Wong Tai Sin temple which was AMAZING!! I got it suggested to me from one of guys we had dinner with the night before!! It was so beautiful and so peaceful. I think that's why I love temples, it's always peaceful and harmonic.
Then I walked to a Nunnery that was close by. That was cool too.
I was just sooo tired in my legs, so I didn't want to walk a lot. I looked On "health" on my phone which keeps a track of how many steps and how much you walked during your days and the day before when I did all my hikes. I walked 30 km!!!!! So yes my legs were pretty tired... Haha
Then I got home again around 6pm and I went to check in my bag which you can do at the train station. So convenient!! My flight wasn't until midnight but this was I didn't had to carry my bag on the train later that night!! Perfect. Then I went to buy some Dim Sum for Ale who was the guys I stay with. Haha get they looked hilarious with their faces. Although later when I opened it I thought they looked like boobs.., I though that was even more hilarious. hahah and lucky he thought so too. Haha
Then we hung out til 9.30 ish when I had to walk to the station.
Some thing I've loved about being in Asia (I hope this won't sound too bad) is that I AM TALL HERE!!!! Haha I am 1.60 m and 5.3 feet and I've always been one of the shorter people but here, I'm literally looking over everyone's heads. I don't know, I've just loved that. Haha bad... And I'm also super tan here. The ding is that Asians want to be as pale as possible and are always covering themselves with long selves and hats and umbrellas. So I've been so tan here too. Haha
Something I really reacted on here though, is that they don't know anything about personal space... Haha i don't know, maybe it's just me being Scandinavian where we have a lot of personal space, but just on the train or on an escalator and stuff like that! Or just waiting in line!! I don't mind when I see that the train is super crowded because then you have to be close but I mean when you are on an escalator or in line somewhere and you can feel someone breathing in your neck!!!! Haha like really!?!?
But I've really enjoyed my time in HK. Where I stayed for the first 4 nights was totally different form the HK island where I was the last 2 nights. I enjoyed both sides but HK island is a little better for being a tourist and to live.
I have about 50 min til I land in London. Wow almost home.. Crazy.. We departed at 00.30 and I don't even remember taking off. I fell asleep as soon as I got to my seat (window seat) and I slept for about 6h. Which meant I missed the dinner they served and I just got fed breakfast. The thing is that when I woke up after 6 h. I had SUCH. Stomach ache.... It was horrible... I couldn't stand or sit or do anything.... The attendants for worried too. (Sorry) but I couldn't vomit either since I hadn't eaten anything since 5pm the day before. So we figured later on that that was why I was in such pain. I hadn't eaten in 17h... So I got some Ginger ale since I didn't feel like eating since I was in pain, and that did help actually. And then now 2 h later I got some omelette and that helped. Thank good.
I was started to think that it might had been the 4 sausages I had for dinner the night before.. Haha. I don't like to spend money on food... Im so bad at that.. I need to be better and understand that I do need food too... But everything is better now!!
The only movie I watched in the plane was Minions. Haha
Now I will have about 3h at Heathrow before going home! :) (hope my bag is with me)
My Chinese year sigh. Rooster. Haha woohoo
This is the Nunnery
Faces on boobs.... Haha sorry.. It's just my bad humor
And for you guys who wonder how I managed to get around here in Hong Kong... So take this road sign for example. I had my map with Chinese street names so all I did was trying to compare the signs and see if they matched the ones on my map, this one for example... I looked that the last sign and though - oh this one has 3 signs and then a snail at the end. It must be this one.
So yes I got lost so many times.... Haha but it was such a fun experience!!
