My Hong Kong Bucket List

The weather in Hong Kong has suddenly got a whole lot more hot and humid. With the summer creeping in on us, my impending departure from Hong Kong seems that bit closer. In September, after what will be nearly three years in this city, I'm moving on. Which means my blog will be going in a slightly different direction, as I'm going backpacking (length and destinations yet to be decided). I will be sad to leave Hong Kong, but I feel that the time's right to move on to something a bit different. Plus I've been wanting to go on a big travelling trip for some time now.

I have just under six months left here. So naturally, I want to make the most of my time left, so here is my Hong Kong Bucket list. I challenge myself to do all of these things over the next six months, some of which are things I've done before, others are things that I somehow, have not yet done.

- Go on at least two more junk boat parties with friends (this has happened 3 times already..)
- Wine and cheese night at W (May 6th for birthday drinks)
- Go back to Yuen Long and eat at one of my old favourite restaurants
- Kadoorie Farm
- Camping on Tai Long Wan beach
- Organise a party at the house on the island near Sai Kung (Nicola and I arranged this on May 16th for joint birthday celebrations)
- Go kayaking again (Following the island camping, during a rainstorm no less)
- 10000 buddhas temple
- Afternoon tea in one of the hotels
