This week, I spent my first guilt free Hong Kong weekend since moving here 7 months ago. I didn’t have to feel guilty about having to be somewhere else and actually, it feels kind of nice to start settling into a place and making new friends. I settled into Treviso and Beijing, but I never got the chance to do this in Hong Kong, and am grateful for the opportunity to start fully enjoying the city now.
I grew to like being somewhere else, I will miss it. I had made it exciting and fulfilling for myself and there were still lots of things I wanted to discover. Now that I am free from thankless domestic chores, I can finally begin my life in Hong Kong proper, although 7 months late.
So, Tuesday was Mid-Autumn Festival day and a public holiday. I went to Cheung Chau Island and spent two hours cycling around. Was a nice way to spend the day even though I could have done with some company to eat all that seafood. Sure, it wasn’t Formentera, but it was nice going some place new.
Most nights I go running along the harbour and remind myself how lucky I am.
I think I’m really going to love Hong Kong.
