First Stop Hong Kong!

Well we have returned from our amazing euro trip, which was incredible. We saw so many fabulous things, the history and culture of centuries ago preserved in the middle of cities, on every corner, im sure we walked around with our mouths wide open the entire trip! There was so much to see, we could have spent months exploring, but we had to save some for another time, so i will show our holiday one country at a time with our first stop at Hong Kong.
 How fabulous is this, the view from the peak looking over central towards Kowloon., this photo is not ours it was taken by a famous and very talented photographer you can see his stuff here
our photos were a bit average, bummer!

 Beautiful fig trees along the shopping strip

lots of shopping along Nathan Rd Kowloon

The weather was cool when we arrived, which was unexpected on our behalf ! We quickly pulled out our euro coats and went to see the giant budda at Po Lin Monastery on Lantau Island, this was truly amazing. The budda is enormous, and the surrounding monastery was beautiful even in the cold rain!

brr poor girl, she was cold, but the climb up the stairs warmed us up!

That was some of our Hong Kong adventure, next up is London, stay tuned!
