All in Vacation
After a long morning hike, a 3 hour flight delay and a Pizza Hut and Bintang feast in the airport (the most basic, most common beer in Indonesia), we made it to our next destination - Lombok*! In the morning, we had breakfast, played some cards, and had hired a driver to take us beach hopping for the day!
Our long summer vacation started with Luke and I arriving in Hong Kong. We couldn’t check in right away so we went and explored the area nearby. We saw a neat rooftop garden, The Garden of Stars, which honored Hong Kong celebrities with quite a few statues and greenery. It was a great place to see the ocean, the city buildings and the streets all at once.
Japan happened in the blink of an eye. Although we had done so much, I felt like we didn't do anything since I didn't have time to process any of it.
Thailand is amazing! Luke and I stepped off the plane and were immediately overwhelmed. Experienced a bit of culture shock as we immediately started bartering for a taxi to the guest house we were staying at. We arrived to the guest house around 11:00 pm and met Boyd, our host, who told us to drop our bags and go straight to the Sunday Night Market.
