Hong Kong, Day 1: Little Rock to Houston

In Travel by ConorLeave a Comment

I’m going to be in Hong Kong in 36 hours. That’s 36 hours for you people on the ground – for me, it’ll be less than a day because I’ll be fast-forwarding time as I fly East. I have multiple means of combating the circadian whiplash of cross-hemispherical jetlag, but as I’ve never flown this far, I have no idea what exactly is going to work.

Why I’m Going to Hong Kong

Speaking of having no idea about things, I’m not really sure why I’m going to Hong Kong. There are reasons, like “I have a friend there,” or “it sounds amazing,” or “I’ve always wanted to try deep-fried squid tentacles on a stick” (that’s a lie). But none of these reasons seem adequate, and even running down the whole list probably wouldn’t be enough. An adventure is more than the some of its parts, so I’m writing this blog to catalogue those parts, and hopefully by the time I get back home, I’ll know what is was all about.

What I’m bringing with me

Since I don’t know what’s going to happen, I’ve prepared for basically anything except the zombie apocalypse. I’ve got art supplies…


…a box of randomness…


…too much tech…


…and a cool new backpack. That has a lot of other stuff in it.


What’s happening next

I’m sitting in the Houston airport right now. It’s 11:11 PM, and we’re gonna board in an hour. So I’m going to draw something, watch a movie, and stay awake for a little longer. Hopefully, I can match Hong Kong time and reduce the soul lag somewhat.
