What made me want to go to Hong Kong? It was at the time Jordan (Aleppo) was travelling the world, so after a couple of months of seeing his photos and videos from various amazing different places around the globe I decided a visit was in order.

I took my first long haul flight (12.5 hours) from Gatwick to HK alone, and met with Jordan the second I landed. We went for 2 weeks in total, and spent our time staying in what was essentially a glorified cupboard. When our 2 weeks were over, Jordan headed to Shanghai and I spent 6 more days in Tokyo with Daisuke and Yumi of @horiegumi_jpn before heading home.
“We spent our time staying in what was essentially a glorified cupboard.”
We woke up fairly late almost every day and didn’t leave the cupboard until about 2-3pm. We would meet with Bob (The best Hong Kong tour guide ever) and then hop on the metro. Normally we would then get Bob to order us a mystery meal, and then go riding with whatever crew we had for the day.
