Two weeks ago I came face to face with a tough decision (tough at the time) when Cathay Pacific announced a dirt cheap round-trip, non-stop flight from Chicago to Hong Kong.
I haven’t been back to Hong Kong since I left in 1998, pregnant with my first child and married to someone who is no longer my husband.
Given those factors, fourteen years is a long time.
But when my mom (who is vacationing in Africa as I type) offered to stay with the kids provided we bring in some help during the day, I called my husband at work and told him of my ‘crazy’ plan. His answer?
So we’re going to Hong Kong in three months. Although I never thought I wouldn’t go back, I never dreamed it would happen before my kids were old enough to get themselves dressed and fed. I couldn’t sleep the night I booked the tickets.
Although we’ll only be there for four days, I’m excited to show my husband this gorgeous city through my eyes.
If you had four days in Hong Kong, where would you go?
