Packing

Packing

Today I practiced packing. Tiger Airlines to Singapore is allowing less than Delta to Hong Kong, so I had to pare down. Here’s everything I’ve got with me now:

NYC or HK?

NYC or HK?

How quickly can you to tell which pics below are NYC and which are HK? Without any clue of what Hong Kong looked like, I took some pics in NYC before I left that I thought could look like HK. Then I recently did the same here in HK. View the original post (the NYC … Continue reading
