Yet another visit to Hong Kong

28 September 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.

Playing catchup after a trip to New South Wales

6 November 2015 18:36 PM

In October I spent a week up in New South Wales, and managed to see some trains along the way - the photos of which I have just finished uploading!

8152 and 8169 lead a grain train north out of Cootamundra

As to what I saw:

  • Day 1 and day 2: driving north from Victoria via Albury and Goulburn.
  • Day 3 and day 4: out and about in Sydney.
  • Day 5: Cootamundra, Junee and Harefield.
  • Day 6: Wangaratta, Benalla and Violet Town.
