China, Hong Kong

[Bird’s Eye View, Leaving Hong Kong]

April 30, 2015

Good morning Tokyo! Sad to say our time in Japan was so short but bittersweet as we went got to swing by Hong Kong on the way home. Before we left, we made one last trip to Don Quijote and stopped by the Moomin Cafe (I’ve linked it to the following review because it lead with “Where would Santa find Finish flavors in Japan)

We sat down with our lovely new furry friends.

Just a friendly morning chit chat

One for you, one for me

Me looking longingly at the friend I wanted to join us

After that we did some more wandering and eventually went back to Narita airport where we had some airport Ramen (ordered vending machine style of course – I highly recommend the dipping noodles)

Making decisions are hard, especially when nothing is in English on the menu and you need exact change

It’s worth the work

And there’s always some brown rice tea flavored soft serve waiting for you at the end

We made our way back to Hong Kong and passed out at our beautiful room at Hotel Icon in Kowloon. To date, one of my favorite hotel experiences. The room comes with a pre-loaded 3G cell phone, a free mini bar full of snacks and beer and a cool circular design. The lobby also has an amazing living wall.

We spent one last day out in Kowloon and made sure to get Ben some custom made shirts.

With only a few hours left, we did what anyone else would do – have a tea set.
