Adventure is beckoning. It’s calling, and we are answering.
The challenge today is to go and do something I’ve wanted to do for a while, and then write about it.
Well, today is the day that we flew to Hong Kong from the UK, so I was unable to find something to do, as such. Fortunately for me, I love traveling, and as soon as I walk in through the entrance of the airport my stomach does a little flip, and my face starts smiling all by itself.
Today was one of those days.
We turned up at the airport, and immediately the hubby and I were grinning like idiots, even though we were facing the prospect of a 12-hour flight with five young children. But never mind; we’ve got traveling down to a fine art by now, and it all went smoothly.
Once we arrived, we checked into our hotel and then after a quick shower, we took the shuttle bus to the local shopping centre. We have just arrived back and have a more hours that we need to stay awake, so that we can aim to still be sleeping at 3am (thanks, jet lag). The kids are all watching a movie while I am writing this.
Tomorrow, our flight to NZ does not leave until 9pm, so we are going on a guided tour, which includes a boat ride, cable car ride, seeing a fishing village, and one or two other things. Now, that will be an adventure with five kids in the Hong Kong heat, but we did it at Disneyland Hong Kong, on the way to the UK, so I’m sure it’ll be a doddle. Can’t be any worse than taking them all on the London Underground, anyway.
So, while I didn’t have to pick an adventure to write about, because today’s adventure coincided with today’s blog challenge, I will still say that this type of day is my best kind of day. Even though I feel absolutely terrible right now, and have only slept one hour in the last 30, and even though I am dizzy and the room is going up and down so that I still feel as though I’m on the plane, these kind of days are still the best kind. The excitement of packing and getting ready to move on, and go somewhere new, even if it is just going ‘home’, so to speak, is phenomenal, and I love. it.
Consider this as my adventure well and truly chosen.
