Mike’s Thoughts On Hong Kong

This was a very personal trip for me – I was born in Hong Kong and lived there until I was 12 years old. I was hoping to find a few of the places I remembered, but also to look at it objectively as a holiday destination. I have to admit, that when Britain handed Hong Kong back to China in 1999, I expected it to lose it’s identity and to be absorbed into the communist People’s Republic of China, but…

HK Museum

Hong Kong Museum Of History

We visited the history museum while we were on holiday on the island. From a selfish point of view, I wanted to see what was there relating to my time living on the island, but I was also fascinated to find out more about the country and it’s development.

Korea Restaurant

Korea Restaurant, Hong Kong

We were walking back to our hotel at North Point, through Wanchai and Causeway Bay and we were looking for somewhere to enjoy our evening meal. We paused to check the menu out at Korea Restaurant and Jackie leaped up from the chair he was sitting on outside, and proceeded to persuade us to go in and try a traditional Korean barbecue. Never having eaten Korean style food before, we didn’t know what to expect, but it turned out to…

Visiting The Peak In Hong Kong

Hong Kong’s peak is 550 Metres above sea level, so it affords incredible views of this most spectacular city, the harbour, and Kowloon, across the water. There are basically three ways to get up there – by car, on foot, or via the world famous Peak Tram, which has been running for around 120 years. We chose, quite sensibly, to go up on the tram and to come down on foot! The tram station is in Garden road, and easily…

The Rock Hotel, Gibraltar

We had arranged to meet a bunch of friends from the UK in Gibraltar, for the boys to go diving, while the ladies enjoyed some sunshine. In order to extend our own holiday, we decided to fly into and out of Madrid, and to drive down one side of Spain and up the other. I’ll cover the road trip part in another post, but this one is about Gibraltar. The rock is an oddity – clearly joined to the mainland…
