Hong Kong '93
This adventure started on a late spring day, 1993, when Annemette whom I sat next to at work informed me that she had decided to travel to Asia in the fall. I almost panicked - thinking of all those nerds I had to deal with - in her rotations - on my work nights. Then she said those magic words Why dont you come along? Well yes why not? All I had to do was collect a huge amount of money take a lot of x-tra shifts & then get the time of when I needed it. Not so bad I only worked evening shifts every other 3rd evening so where was the problem???
So I did - worked & worked & worked some more - we booked visas tickets got vaccinated & planned the trip (Copenhagen Trans-Siberian railroad Mongolia China Vietnam Laos (maybe) Bangkok & Nepal) filled our backpacks with 2nd. hand clothes & October the 9th we met at the central station family & friends came to say goodbye. I didnt have a clue what I was heading into it was my first non-organized trip out in the big wide world. Goodbye everybody - see you in December.
