My life got flipped turned upside down

Hi you! 💖

Remember when I said that Marlon and I were in the middle of something very exciting? We weren't 100% sure at the time, so I couldn't really say anything yet, but I can finally tell you everything!

Marlon received a very interesting job offer not too long ago. The only reason why it took him a little while to accept, is because it would require us to move to Hong Kong. Marlon is a coastal engineer, and we kind of already knew that his job would give us the opportunity to travel, or maybe eventually even live in a different country, but we had no idea it would all happen so fast. And to be honest, I also needed some time to get used to the idea of leaving everything behind to live somewhere I had never been before.

But we did it! I know it sounds crazy, but we packed our stuff, and moved to the other side of the world! ✈️ We're still really new here, so if you have any tips on restaurants, shopping, things to do, etc, please leave a comment below!

I'm trying to explore Hong Kong as much as possible, and I really enjoy travelling around when Marlon is at work. We try to go on trips together as much as possible during the weekend as well, and always find lots of exciting places to visit! Yesterday we took the Ngong Ping cable car on Lantau Island to visit the Po Lin monastery, and of course climb the 268 steps to the Tian Tan Buddha. We both absolutely loved it, even the trip there was amazing. Hong Kong's nature is seriously underestimated, everything is just so beautiful!

Would you be interested in an apartment tour of our new house? I think it might be nice to do a "shop with me" here in Hong Kong as well, but as I haven't really done anything like that before, I'm not sure if that's something you'd be interested in. What do you think? I'd love to hear your thoughts, so please let met know!

  1. Wow that must be quite a change for you. Will you try and find work there too? I'd love an apartment tour, in fact anything you want to blog about will be good. It's your blog after all!

    1. It's definitely a big change! I'm trying to take it all in and explore as much as possible, and the people here are so sweet, so it's overall a very positive and very fun experience so far. I'd love to find a job here, but it's not that easy at the moment with everything that's going on here in HK. But I know my qualities so I'm positive that it will happen soon :)

    1. The stairs were a bit intimidating at first but they weren't as intense as I thought haha!

  3. Oooh, what a wonderful opportunity! Use it as much as you can and enjoy it, what a thrill! I'd absolutely love to see what they have in shops, especially candy, teas, food, fruit, veggies etc. And we'd love to see the house too!

  4. Those cable cars would not do well with my fear of heights.

  5. What a great opportunity! Please share everything that you can as we are so sheltered here in the US. There's nothing like exploring different cultures. Enjoy the change of pace and scenery. :)
