 HKIA

Hong Kong International Airport, Hong Kong. October 2016

Wanderlust!  It’s important to travel every so often to see the world and capture beautiful memories while on the journey.  This photo was taken on the most recent trip I made to Asia which was last autumn in 2016.  It just so happens that tomorrow I will be exiting the borders again to go visit our southern neighbours!  Perhaps I will take a similar photo when I am there. 🙂 Continue reading
