  1. Aw, great to read these Penny 😊 Interesting to hear you lived in Hong Kong! I visited briefly on my travels! You made me smile with your “post box” response as it just sums things up! Nice to learn more about you 😊xx

    1. Thanks so much Emma. Did you like Hong Kong? I loved it, but did drive me nuts at times. We lived there for 5 years & visited Australia during our time in Asia. I saw from your post you lived in Australia, how fab. Where abouts did you live? The flight across the country seemed to take forever!

      I know, ‘post box’ was a bit cheeky, but I couldn’t resist! πŸ˜… Thanks again for tagging me. It’s a fun way to get to know the folk behind the blogs. 😊 xxx

  2. I did like Hong Kong. I was only there a few nights but I really enjoyed it. Wow, that’s a long time you lived there for. I mainly travelled around Australia, but lived and worked in Sydney for about 6 months! Oh I know, it was a long flight flight across the country! I remember being surprised it took 4 hours from Melbourne to Perth!
    Oh you’re welcome 😊 Great to learn more about you xx

    1. Oh lovely. Sydney was the city we visited in Australia. Amazing beaches. We stopped by Garie beach, absolutely breathtaking. Must have been a fab experience to work there for a while. This certainly is a fun link up. Like chatting over a coffee! 😊xxx

  3. How neat to learn more about you! Pretty pictures too! Hong Kong, wow. What a cultural experience that must have been. I’ve always been nervous at the thought of going to Asia because of the food. I’m a little picky and well, you have to eat, every day.😁 Did you enjoy the food there?

    The post 😁 Somedays that feels like an adventure in and of itself! Thanks for the chuckle! 😊 Happy Friday!🌸

    1. Thanks so much Mishka. Apologies for the slow reply. It certainly was an experience living in Asia. I met some wonderful folk there. And the food, we didn’t tend to eat street food, but there was such a variety. And oh so yummy. Honestly some of the best food I’ve eaten.

      Ha ha ha, yes the postbox. Well, I had to sneak a bit of humour in. Loved your post on behindtheillness. You’ve lived in some fab places. I must pop by again & leave a comment. Thanks again.🌸
