New blog is up!

http://youngtravelershongkong.wordpress.com/

A few things to note before I leave this media packed blog for my new one:

  • Say hello to Jason, who’s just joined the blog
  • You will now be able to see who posted what from the usernames

Also, keep note that I will be continuing this blog, and not starting from scratch.

Thanks for being with me, and remember to keep reading my blog!

The new Hong Kong Airline News

As I explained ~15 minutes earlier, Hong Kong Airline News has run out of upload space.

Instead of deleting every unused pic on the blog, I am actually going to start another blog that looks pretty much exactly the same as this one, but here are the changes:

Goodbye Hong Kong Airline News, hello The Young Travelers of Hong Kong

Hong Kong Airline News seems a little too clichΓ© for this blog, so a new blog address, probably youngtravelershk.wordpress.com, will appear and take over. We’re young (I’m 13 and Jason’s 12) and we’re from Hong Kong, so that’s as easy as a blog address gets.

Hello Jason

Jason, who’s posted a trip report on the blog and has two to follow, will be joining the blog. I’m going to be his editor, of course, and he’ll be putting some great stuff up. At the same time, hongkongtravelinformation.wordpress.com will be officially discontinued.

Hello to our own accounts

Jason and I have been sharing an account all along. Now, you will easily be able to see who posted what.

Not much else will change

Content is king, and I will continue to post my trip reports (starting from my exploration of Yufuin). Of course, the trip report index will stay, and everything else will (except “Random Trip Itineraries”). All trip report index entries already linked will link back to Hong Kong Airline News, which will stay (as in everything continued will be on a different blog, but we won’t take this one down).

What did I miss?

Bottom line

I’m pretty excited for this one! New blog will come up tomorrow at the latest and will take some getting used to and switching, so expect time.

Review: Kyushu Karnival – Dining at Hoteiya Yufuin

At the Hoteiya, like at the Seikai, we had dinner at the hotel (which was part of why the package was so damn expensive). Now, before I start all my raving, let me first rant about the absence of child meals. Out of all that was sold at the hotel, my sister only managed to eat the sashimi, the rice, and a few other things. 😦

Dinner was served in-room both nights, and while the most memorable night was the second night, the first night was also pretty awesome.

My 2015 bucket list

Earlier this week Lucky published his 2015 bucket list, though he only talked about the festivals he wanted to visit.

While I haven’t planned far ahead yet (and still have a tiny bit of travel to do this year), I do have a little travel planned for next year, and I figured I might as well share it.

Phuket

This is a confirmed trip. I’m flying with a friend (who came with me to New Zealand back last February) down to Phuket most likely in Thai’s business class, and we’re staying at The Bell Phuket, which we booked on a package.
