We put the final touches on our packing then jumped into a private car for our ride to Bali International Airport (DPS).
The flight to Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia left at 6am and went off without a hitch, touching us down at 9am.
Our next 7 hours were spent in the Kuala Lumpur airport, reading, writing, and watching movies in the “Movie Lounge.”
At 4pm we boarded our flight to Hong Kong, touching down around 9pm that night.
From there we had an hour long train ride to Hong Kong Station, followed by a 30 minute walk to an apartment complex where we were finally able to drop our bags and put an end to the day’s travels, nearly 20 hours later.
My University friend, Charles, graciously allowed us to use his apartment while he was away visiting Vietnam for the weekend.
It was a shame to miss each other (twice in fact, as we narrowly missed crossing paths 4 months earlier in Vietnam), but it was such a treat for us to have our own unsupervised space for a change.
Cory and I walked down the hill (most of downtown Hong Kong is built on a massive hill) to the local grocery store, then returned to the apartment to cook up a delicious dinner.
