Hippy Times #20 ๐Ÿ‹๐Ÿปโ€โ™€๏ธ

Monday morning โ€“ the departure day has arrived. I set my alarm but am still awake at the normal time. Everything is quiet in Lexiโ€™s house so I have to creep around and end up drying my hair in the back room with the doors closed in the hope that I donโ€™t wake anyone as itโ€™s only 4.30 am.

Lexi is up and is coming to the airport with me โ€“ as much as I have tried to dissuade her from this, she is insistent. The Uber arrives and off we go. I check in, thereโ€™s no queue but I am told my suitcase is overweight!! It has 1.4 kgs too much so Lexi and I scrabble around and remove stuff and then finally we manage to remove a few things to the backpack and itโ€™s acceptable. We have a quick coffee and then itโ€™s time for me to go through departures and into the lounge. Hugs and tears โ€“ as we both knew there would be and a final selfie and a wave good-bye.

The flight is pretty good and uneventful. I watch a couple of movies and read my book, a short snooze of about 30 minutes and before you know it, we are landing in Hong Kong. I have a day room booked at a hotel because there is a lay-over of about 8 hours. I check into the hotel, change and head to the gym to get rid of some energy. Itโ€™s pretty decent as hotel gyms go and Iโ€™m actually there longer than intended.

After freshening up and repacking my cabin baggage, itโ€™s back to the airport. Cathay Pacific lounge has a good selection of food and Iโ€™m starving so have some Chinese vegetables and chicken. Thereโ€™s also a counter where you can order hot food but as I know they will feed us on the plane, I donโ€™t really need too much.
