our two days in hkg were very nice – of course one cannot explore all of the city in that time. i still managed to take a lot of photos. we had a most wonderful room with a great view of the habor at The Excelsior. too bad we missed out on the 34th floor bar because we wanted chinese food and not steaks.
we went walking around the island the first day and took a trip up to Victoria’s Peak. spectacular view of the city plus some nice souvenir shopping.
the second day we went to kowloon with the ferry and did lots of walking again. no museums even though we passed several.
the afternoon we returned to the hotel to get ready for the second flight. the plane was verry uncomfortable and we arrived here very tired.
flight over auckland was great, nice weather – though autumn is irritating. rental car pickup was nice and easy. everyone at the airport was so helpful and friendly.
we found the hotel easily – the nokia does very well as navigation system. however since the rom was not ready we walked around a bit. discovered we are located near the university campus and managed to find a helpful kiwi who showed us the next atm before we tried to buy a snack and a drink.
so for now we might go out a bit. more here soon and also on twitter as delusions_de (closed profile need an account to follow sry)
