Notes from Hong Kong

November 07, 2014


11131908445_ac94aafa8d_cLittle notes as I type from the InterContinental Hong Kong.

I’ve been traveling in Japan, Taiwan, and China for the last five weeks. I love spending the last few days of each Asia trip in Hong Kong, holing up (warm bath, fluffy bathrobe, in for the night!) in a great hotel and taking care of life admin. Getting organized and reevaluating goals. Mapping out what’s next. It’s easier to do these things when I’m not in NYC or Honolulu…seeing things from a distance. I might travel for tea, hotels, and dessert, but also to rebalance ^-^
