June Instagram Stories: 2016


June has been a great month, I can’t deny. It was when our long awaited travels came up and we headed off to a mix of Hong Kong, Maccau and Tokyo. Three countries in the space of two weeks doesn’t seem too bad to me! We had a great time, I can’t wait to share more posts with you all on it. If you’ve been following me over on Instagram, you’ll have seen some of the daily snapshots I had been sharing of our travels. It felt like a total culture shock being there, not to mention the sensation of being quite so far away hitting home. I don’t know what I expected, but it felt like we were there for a lot longer than just two weeks and it was wonderful waking up each morning not even knowing what day it was, not needing to know, not caring. We were utterly relaxed and enjoying ourselves, walking up to ten miles a day we saw everything we wanted to, and more.

The weather wasn’t great the whole time with it being in typhoon season in Hong Kong, but the clouds were actually blissful against the heat and humidity which became unbearable at times. I developed a fondness for green tea slurpees from 7/11, the most amazing ice cold drink, a perfect way to cool down and stay hydrated, it’s something I miss already. We created so many memories I don’t even know where to start. It was wonderful being able to share it with our friends living over in Hong Kong too, and seeing them after so long apart. It was both our first experiences to Asia and it’s definitely something I’ll treasure fondly. Now we are back in the UK, we celebrated Luke’s masters graduation and welcomed new beginnings for both of us going onwards against what challenges the result of the EU referendum may now bring. We returned to Edinburgh to some glorious sunshine and midsummer, with the Fringe festival looming around the corner, I’m looking forward to making the most of summer now we are home. What have you been up to this month?
