Our Family in front of Victoria Harbour in Hong Kong
Dear Fellow Traveler,
Ahhh... our last few nights in the Philippines. What a great time we have had here! The past 6 months have brought amazing experiences, new friendships, and expansion beyond our wildest expectations. Boracay and the Philippines in general are definitely places to see. And we got to live it!
In addition to all of the parties, dinners, and island hopping we've done this past month, we also made time for a trip over to Hong Kong during the boys' spring break from school. Along with our yaya Cloudine, we commuted around in their efficient (London-inspired) double-decker buses, rode the cable-car up to the top of Victoria's Peak, visited both Disneyland and the 6 Flaggsesque Ocean Park, traversed Victoria Harbour, enjoyed the glass-bottom 360 tram up to the Po Lin Monastery (& the Big Buddha), and watched the Symphony of Lights from the Avenue of the Stars in Kowloon. Yes, there was a large statue of Bruce Lee and a life-sized Jackie Chan made of wax.
On our return to Boracay the boys convinced us to rent a couple of bug cars and tour the island's nooks and crannies that we had previously missed. And then the two of us as a couple (sans kids) went to Cebu, Mactan, Panglao, and Bohol where we saw the Chocolate Hills and visited with the tarsier monkeys.
But now it's time to move on and head back to the Western Hemisphere once again. That is after a final stop in Manila with a Tears for Fears concert thrown in. Oh, and we'll also be spending approximately 8 hours in Beijing before our final leg back to the States. What an adventure we have had. Now it's time to look forward to summer catching up with family and friends. We cannot forget the BIG family birthday coming up too. Hint: it's the only female member of our nuclear family.
