I’m hoping that by the end of this post, you understand the reasoning behind the title of this post, but chances are you probably won’t. At least not fully. I’m sorry I make these silly things up.
I’ve spent part of these past two weekends exploring two different Hong Kong islands. With my days left in Hong Kong numbered, (I can actually count them using my fingers 😥 ) I’m trying to cram everything I haven’t done into these last few days. Last week I visited Lamma Island, and the week before that I biked around Cheung Chau Island. It was a bit shocking seeing how different the two islands are from the Hong Kong I’ve grown so used to. For starters, except for the occasional police car or ambulance, no cars are driven on either island and as such, people walk or bike to get around.
People over there live much simpler lives and I couldn’t help but invite the calm atmosphere into me and embrace the serenity while biking up and down the steep hills in Cheung Chau, and walking along the family trail at Lamma Island. Sometimes it’s just great to escape the hustle and bustle in the city and experience a few hours of calm, and Cheung Chau and Lamma Islands are two great places to do just that. (I would also recommend visiting the Chi Lin Nunnery at Diamond Hill, it’s amazing what that place does to you and your peace of mind). Here are my photos though:
We went to this vegetarian restaurant on Lamma Island called Bookworm Cafe and I loved the quotes strewn all over the room. The food was amazing and it was a very cozy space!
I notice I upload a lot more photos in my posts now. Not so sure if that’s a good or bad thing. Anyways, to explain a little bit (at least) of this blog title, here’s the last one:
