The whole object of travel is not to set foot on foreign land; it is at last to set foot on one’s own country as a foreign land.” – G.K. Chesterton

Big News!

It's been a month since I last wrote in this blog, and a lot has happened in that time! For one thing, we have said goodbye to the apartment and city that we called home for the past 7.5 years. We spent two weeks packing and cleaning up (and throwing out many precious things), which was no small feat considering we also had to care for our three children. But that was eventually accomplished with many, many late nights and many, many cups of coffee drunk. It was especially difficult to say goodbye to our friends and all we had established in Hong Kong. The time we spent in HK was almost twice the time we spent in Japan, and we still miss Japan like crazy! Hong Kong will always remain a big part of our lives, especially our 9-year-old who also had to say goodbye to many of his good friends.

Our final day in Hong Kong was relatively clear with low haze and sunny weather! This shot was taken from the balcony just moments after we handed our keys to the landlord:

Right now, we are in the middle of our epic month-long Europe trip. In the past two weeks, we've spent a week in Switzerland, a few days in Munich, and currently in Austria. Loving almost every minute of it, but not enjoying the exhausting part of it that comes with travelling with three kids. I've been in photography heaven in almost every location we've stayed at, most especially the Swiss Alps! I can't wait to share the beautiful shots I've taken. Here's one taken from my phone, unfiltered and untouched.

On top of Mt Rigi, also known as the Queen of the mountains, where we had awesome view of part the Swiss Alps:

Stay tuned!
