Every journey starts wi a beginning, so while do they call the start point a Terminal, it’s some what final. Perhaps it’s the fact that unless you’re in a lounge with free drinks and snacks, you just can’t wait to get out of there. Heathrow Terminal 5 is shiny, but the shops are the usual assortment designed to pass time browsing while suckers pay over the odds. At least I can get 45 free minutes of wifi – better than many airports I’ve been to (though I believe HK has free for as long as you’re there).

Still it is a beginning. The start to my voyage of discovery for the year, to see just how much Hong Kong has changed in the 10 years since I was last there. I have rudimentary plans, based around friends being not fully available (due to family commitments or their own holidays) and I’m not sure just how much will be closed over the Easter Weekend, probably only the major stores.

Will be interesting to see if my old pet yum chai/dim sum restaurant is still open and if Agave is still around (it may have moved). Also time to find new places and make new discoveries.
