If you've tried to visit this using using your mobile phone before now, you've probably had to do lots of scrolling around in order to see the photos.

But scroll no more - I've updated the look and feel of this site so it automatically resizes for smaller screens, so that it doesn't matter what device you are using.

Yet another visit to Hong Kong

September 28, 2016 00:00 AM

Time flies as you get older, and for me it is no different - I've just returned from yet another visit to Hong Kong. This time around my young son was also along for the ride, with twelve days spent visiting family and sightseeing around Hong Kong, plus a short stopover on the way back home from somewhere else.

Looking down on the still to be completed West Kowloon Terminus of the Hong Kong Section of Guangzhou–Shenzhen–Hong Kong Express Rail Link (XRL)

I still managed to visit a number of new places in Hong Kong - the village of Tai O on Lantau Island, Shek O beach on Hong Kong Island, a visit to the quiet island of Peng Chau, and a night spent in a hotel overlooking Hong Kong Airport.

You can read more on my other blog - Checkerboard Hill.
