How bad have I been with my posts lately? Shame on me! In saying that we have just returned from a quick trip to Shanghai and Hong Kong, so I have an excuse.
Of course a trip away means hauling the camera everywhere .. funny how ‘heavy’ they become .. LOL
Shanghai Tower – which is the second tallest building in the world. Did I go up for a look? You must be joking, I’m scared of heights.
Then there was the view from our hotel room, a nice place called Indigo ..
Shanghai has much of interest
The City God Temple of Shanghai ..
With lots of stores, and stalls nearby
Dogs in jackets …
Or just having a break!
Busy day …
Old and new
And wonderful food …
Next up was Hong Kong. If you ever get there as a tourist then I highly recommend the Big Bus tour .. hop on, hop off! A great way to see the place. Perfect sitting in an open double decker bus on a steamy day with head phones, recorded voice and loads to see.
Of course a gentle nudge by hubby meant leaving the bus to go and see the Man Mo Temple in Sheung Wan (thanks Andrew) I just loved this place.
We were staying in Kowloon, so a quick daily trip on the ferry took us to Hong Kong for shopping and the city sights.
The food was great, but then so was the wine 😉
Watch out for my next … gardening post!
