Welcome to my blog

This is it! I've given up work -retired from the rat race and am about to start on a 10 year adventure, doing all those things I've been meaning to do but never had the time to do them. I've offloaded my responsibilities and it is now my time. So follow my adventures and see whether I actually manage anything!

Night time in Hong Kong

This evening I returned to see the lanterns in Victoria Park. It was crowded with families, many of whom were carrying their own lanterns. The children were having a whale of a time. Here are those lanterns I took photos of last night all lit up.

There were now messages hanging from these lanterns but I couldn't read them.

No that isn't me by the teapots. It was so busy I couldn't get a clear view.

I couldn't stand further back to take a better picture because there were crowds of people behind me.

 I did go inside the giant lantern to find more lanterns inside. The view from inside was even more colourful than from the outside.

The colours changed with the music.


  1. Wow that is beautiful. That must have been a wonderful trip.

  2. How lovely! I not only enjoyed the pictures, but the story of the lanterns as well.

  3. Wow! That was a good time to land in Hong Kong. The lanterns are so colourful and even able to walk inside one. The fun has begun.

  4. What a wonderful display!! So many colours and shapes - but of course the RED is my favourite!

  5. Wow, you have done a lot already. I liked the boat trip you made, specialy the back of the restaurant! Your photos are very good and I love to follow your trip.
