In my opinion, books are the best accessory.

Styling Librarian Hong Kong Update Week 36 Junk Boat Special Feature

We’re going on a junk boat… (Sounds like we’re going on a bear hunt, right? At least in my mind it does and got stuck on repeat for quite a while!)
One thing that stuck in my mind since the beginning of the year was a friend telling me that if I was invited to go on a junk boat, say yes. No matter what.
So riding on a junk boat from 7pm-11pm on the night before I have to head to the airport at 5am totally makes sense, right? 
My husband and I have explored Hong Kong together and then in some ways independently. For example, my husband has joined night hike groups, weekly lunch groups, volleyball groups, and tried out windsurfing… I on the other hand, haven’t done any of those things. One of his connections led us to heading down to the Hong Kong Harbour and hopping on a junk.
Now, for my consistent readers, you know how I feel about being on the water, whether in a canoe, kayak, cruise boat, etc… not my cup of tea, but I couldn’t skip this experience, especially with the amazing dinner menu that my husband tempted me with…
Here’s what happened…
1. We rode the MTR to Central and walked 3 blocks over to the public pier.
2. We wandered around for a little bit looking for our connection to the junk trip.
3. Found person, met others, sociable crowd…
4. Waved over junk boat.
5. Rode out and around Hong Kong, beautiful view, evening time, grew dark.
6. I goggled at a huge cruise ship. Seeing it from the water made me realize how large it was.
7. 8pm: Stopped at Lamma Island and went to a seafood restaurant, DELICIOUS meal, food just kept coming.
8. 10:10pm: closing time, rushed back to the boat and we headed back to Central pier.
9. Said our goodbyes and thought about catching a taxi, saw a queue of 40 people and decided to walk 3 blocks back to MTR.
10. Back home at 11:45pm- wakeup/departure at 5am. Stuffed and hopefully ready to go to USA for 2 week visit!

    Still need to get you out on a daytime junk when D x 3 can swim off the back, moor up and enjoy the scenery and cruise gently back through the harbour.

    Two reactions: 1) Not what I expected the junk to look like. 2) That’s a lot of food!

      It was a load of food!! But fed 15 people quite well… I didn’t expect the junk to look like that either. Didn’t mind it though! 🙂
