Windy at the Peak

_DSC2412

Feeling extra touristy, we took a spontaneous trip up Victoria Peak- the highest overlooking view of Hong Kong. After a taxi ride, a train ride, and a multitude of escalators we finally made it to the top. And it was freaking windy! Word to the wise: a dress is not the kind of outfit you want to plan on a trip to the Peak. Unless you want several Marilyn-esque close calls with a bunch of total strangers. Stand to close to the edge and this happens

But the view was well worth the chill.

Kryz and I took a spontaneous trip up Busay this weekend. With no destination in mind, we just drove on, enjoying the scenery. Until, we saw this. Tucked away behind a row of houses was this amazing view. Can you imagine getting up to that every morning? I was sans camera but luckily Kryz had hers with her so I was able to take this panorama to share with all y’all. ;) Click on the photo to get a larger view of the pano.

From there I contented myself to shooting with my camera phone. Here’s the glimpse I had of the scenery that made me immediately pull over. The gorgeous view aside, have you ever seen a more idyllic nipa hut?

This is the same photo with a little instagram-love. Oh yes, hefe.

We stayed until the sun was well below the horizon, just taking it all in.

Enjoy!
