Life has been full of fabulous surprises! When we travel long distances, we fly business-class so we get flat beds to sleep in – it’s the only way my back can cope with such long journeys. I didn’t know that Hubby had booked the first half of our journey out here first class! He hadn’t planned on doing it but he received an email from the airline with an excellent offer. He decided to go for it as we’re on a honeymoon! The second half of the flight was in business class. Apart for some turbulence which was severe enough for the captain to tell the crew to take seats, the whole journey was unventful.
We had a taxi to the hotel, and Hubby surprised me again! He had upgraded our room to a suite. His reasoning was that, if we had problems finding suitable eating places for me – I’m coeliac – we could prepare our own meals in the room.
While we’ve been out and about today – Wednesday – we couldn’t find any restaurants that offer gluten-free food! This evening we dined in the Chinese restaurant in the hotel. We spoke to the restaurant manager and explained that I needed a gluten-free meal, he said that’s fine, they can do this! This evening I enjoyed one of the most enjoyable Chinese meals ever!
We spent our day wandering around the local area taking in the ambience of Hong Kong. I struggled a bit with the air at first – very hot and muggy – but my body adapted quite quickly. We wandered down side streets, up escalators, crossed bridges.
We went down to the railway station and bought an Octopus ticket each which we can use to pay for our travel. This evening, Othman has booked tickets for a visit to the Peak tomorrow.
I hope you’ve enjoyed this quick update, and I look forward to being back with you soon.
