When it comes to camping, we don’t screw around.
After a few weeks of 10+ hour days, I felt that a longer weekend was overdue, so I have asked for the entire Easter Weekend off, including both Good Friday and Easter Monday. The boys have booked the ferry rides both ways (the ~$18 fee was well worth it for the sole purpose of avoiding the stress of rushing to secure a spot), leaving at 5.15 am on Friday morning, and coming back at 8.15 pm on Sunday.
In February of 2015 I had a pleasure of being in Hong Kong for 2 weeks (well, 13 days to be exact), 10 of which I was rolling solo, and the remaining days were spent showing my family around; so I have spent the first part as a tourist, and the second part as a tour guide.
The weather was looking promising, so without much hesitation I took off as soon as I had breakfast, hastily trying to catch a Wi-Fi signal so I could see how to get to my next point of interest, Nan Lian Garden and Chi Lin Nunnery. The nunnery closing time is 4 pm, and the garden is open until 7, so I had to assign them their own day. Besides, it was my last day alone, as my family was arriving the day after; and I have already seen everything that I had planned.
The first rainy day caught me a little off-guard. I mean, I did expect it since I checked the forecast, but I was not emotionally ready for it. So after the full week of straight sun, I got a reality check, and spent the first half of the day in my bed because I didn’t feel like going anywhere.
