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!

The real Hong Kong

When I was in Hong Kong I stumbled across this wonderful local market. Lots of the goods were laid out on the street which is not unusual but what was different was that the street was also used by the trams.

There was a wonderful array of food and goods on display and not one tacky stall of tourist souvenirs.

 The market was full of life and colour

Linking this to Orange you glad it's Friday.


  1. It looks like a nice local market.

  2. Exciting places to visit. Hanging meat unrefrigerated always turns my stomach.

  3. I feel the same as Diane about the meat, but then again I don't eat it all that often. I can't say never because I ate turkey for a week during Thanksgiving. And then I got sick. I wonder if there's any correlation. :-)

  4. Bear With Me...exotic and lively♫

  5. I've never been to Hong Kong, but it looks like there are lots of interesting sights - thanks for sharing your market photos.

  6. Looks exciting! I definitely prefer to stay away from the "touristy" areas as well, you get a better feel for the place you're visiting! :o)

  7. I so enjoy photos of faraway places.....I can feel the energy...

  8. Thank you for your participation in Orange You Glad It's Friday. Hope to see you back again this week!!!
