In less than 12 hours I’ll be able to count on one hand the days until I leave for Hong Kong. Thousands fly, walk, or drive into Hong Kong every day, so it’s not an unusual occurrence. But I’ve never viewed Hong Kong as just another destination and doubt I ever will. So what makes it so special?
It’s the place where I came of age. I arrived as a naive 19 year-old.
And left as a married 27 year-old, pregnant with my first child.
I did spend some time in the US during a few of those years.
But by and large my 20s were formed and defined by my years in Hong Kong. I look forward to revisiting the places I knew from the 90s.
I’m also curious to discover (some of) what’s changed since then.
If you could go back to a place from your past, where would you choose?
