Wow, what a (nearly) week!! It has been non stop so far and my first impressions are that this won’t change so I’m already behind on what I wanted to post. My first full day in HK was great. I walked down our hill from school in the rain with no umbrella (because of the […]

So today was the day I had been waiting for for 6 months! I moved to Hong Kong!! Not much to report so far (well no photo’s anyway). Flight was loooong but fine. My little upgrade was a nice treat so I was able to recline back a little more but still not loads. I […]

I’m at the boarding gate ready to get on the plane!! I actually managed to get a slight upgrade! I’m in premium economy which is a bit better than economy apparently! Hopefully the seats will be a bit more comfortable. I’ve actually been so overwhelmed by the number of messages I’ve had on Facebook from […]

So tomorrow a friend of mine leaves the country and flys off to Hong Kong for two years. She’s off to teach in an amazing school over there. Now first of all I am super jealous of what I know will be an amazing life experience but also I am really…

We are now down to less than 24hrs!! I am checked in, boarding pass is printed and I’m in bed trying to get some sleep! The last few days have been pretty awesome, I got some amazing gifts from people and had a lovely family get together which involved drinking, food, chatting, fairy lights, light […]

Day two was wonderful! Our taxi picked us up right on time and delivered us, with near perfection, to our required destination-just one u-turn made. The RAC have been great and I would definitely recommend getting European Car cover if you’re travelling out of the UK. We picked the naughty car up and headed to […]

As mentioned in my last post, things have been a bit up in the air this past week or so. This has mainly been about what happens in the 16 days I have left before I leave. I’m moving from my current house to my parents for the last couple of weeks but I wasn’t […]

20 days to go! I’ve been trying to write this post for days but I don’t actually know what to write! I want to write about how I’m feeling but I don’t actually know! I’ve got a week until I move to my parents for a couple of weeks until the big move and I’ve […]

Wow, what a few days! On Thursday night I had my leaving meal with my work colleagues. There were 20 of us and we had a private room in Petit Paris in Nottingham. It was fantastic. The  food was great, as was the service. They coped extremely well with the number of us and the […]

Well I’m nearly at 6 weeks to go until I leave and I’ve had a very eventful day. About 12 weeks ago I decided to start using the NHS couch to 5k app as a way of getting fit. Moving to hot and humid HK I felt that I needed to try and get a […]
