Sha Tin Racecourse

Sha Tin Racecourse

The night after visiting WKCD I ended up going to an AYCE hotpot restaurant where at the time, I didn’t realize I ate way too much, but definitely felt it during the middle of the night when I woke up at 3am wanting to throw up. It’s been three years since I’ve done any major traveling and I still haven’t learned to control my tendency to overeat while on vacation.

West Kowloon Cultural District

West Kowloon Cultural District

One of the first places I visited in HK after my ‘quarantine’ period was over was the West Kowloon Cultural District (WKCD).

Santa Monica

Santa Monica

The last full day of travels I had in LA was going to Santa Monica for the day. Prior to that I had to get my PCR test done in the morning, as it needed to be completed 72 hours before my flight home. Arranging to get the test was probably the most stressful part of my vacation experience. There were so many options, including [supposedly] free testing for Canadians at local pharmacies, but none seemed feasible within the 72…
