Australia & Hong Kong

In November we headed back to Australia via Hong Kong for my brothers wedding. Having never been to Hong Kong I was not entirely prepared for its ‘vertical-ness’ and insane pollution levels. The city is very impressive: it feels like a set from the 5th element or blade runner.

Even more impressive is the almost bizarre blend of old and new Hong Kong. There are still echoes of both English and Chinese pasts.

After our brief stop over in Hong Kong it was off to Australia for the main leg of our two week holiday (unfortunately we forgot to load the photos into Flickr). Daryls wedding was fantastic, it was great to catch up with so many family and friends. After the wedding we headed on down to Krust’s folks place for a night and then onto Mikes’ place in Newcastle.

While Krust stayed in Newcastle I took a quick (1 day) side trip to Melbourne to visit friends, which turned out to be well worthwhile…. the only downside is that it reminded of how good life in Melbourne is.
