Analogue Adventures – Orient Escapade 1982 – Hong Kong

All photos taken on May 6, 1982.

After all our adventures yesterday, we opted for a more low key day today. Buffet breakfast was again in the Bauhania Room at the Hong Kong Hotel. After lunch we spent some time wandering through the shops along Nathan Road and in Ocean Terminal, looking for some last minute souvenirs.

Not much to tell. After working for 3 companies over 43+ years (38 years 7 months with my last company), I finally got that promotion I had waited my entire career for……retirement. I have been exploring this new career for the past 7+ years and while it is not always exciting, the chance to do what I want for myself and my family instead of what my company wants has been very fulfilling. Early on, there was a long list of projects in my “to-do” hopper and I attacked these projects with a vengeance for the first 9 months of retirement. Eventually, my brain told me that this was not what retirement was about, so it took me another 5 months before my industriousness again took over and I attacked another line of projects, this time somewhat shorter and less complicated, as well as many new projects related to the family weddings in 2016. After going hard for 6 weeks and 3 weddings, my body was telling me to relax, then the flu bug hit and as soon as that was done with me, my sciatic acted up. No rest for the wicked. In 2020 and 2021, the Covid 19 pandemic changed the whole retirement gig. I was lucky to not be still working, for sure. I enjoy photography, gardening, working with my hands, walking, cycling, skiing, travelling, reading and creating special photo and video productions obtained in my first pastime. I may never become wealthy in any of these pursuits, but I already feel I am rich in life experiences far beyond any expectation.

    1. Thanks Marion. The Star Ferry was a great harbour cruise and a good way to see the skyline. Sometimes on that tour, we would take it one way, just so we could climb back on and come back. Thanks for reading. Allan

  1. “Most Exciting Ferry Ride” made me laugh for some reason. I pictured rough water and trying to stay seated for dear life, but I’m guessing it’s just nice views to see. The botanical garden looks pretty, I’ve never seen flamingos at the ones I’ve visited. The views at night sure are beautiful!

    1. Ha Ha. If you have that criteria, then our ferry ride from Sydney to Manly or from North to South Island NZ would qualify. The up and down oscillations between bow and stern were about 50 feet. No, Star Ferry is exciting because of where you are and the crush of passengers at the time. It was the cheapest ferry ride we ever found. Thanks for reading Lyssy. Allan


  2. I didn’t make it to the Botanical Garden, that was fun to see. As for the Star Ferry, I took it just once at night to meet a friend on the other side of the water for an Indian feast. Peking Duck… one of my all time favourites.

    1. It was good to have an oasis of calm in such a populous city and we were lucky to have the Star Ferry terminal just out our hotel door. When we ordered the Peking Duck, we had no idea how much food would be coming. Thanks for reading Leighton. Happy Friday. Allan
