I don’t know much about blogging, travel blogging, travel writing, etc, so when I have a few spare minutes I explore other people’s blogs to see what they’re up to, learn about their style, and check out their blog format. There are a lot of great blogs out there, and I came across one that curates a “Weekend Getaway” section from guest bloggers. This section of their blog features information about what to do for 2-4 days in a variety of cities. I wrote them asking whether they were interested in having Hong Kong on their roster. They said yes, I did some writing, and here we are…!
Nǐ hǎo! We are Braden and Alison – newlyweds, Vancouverites and Canadian transplants to Hong Kong. Braden is in retail finance and his company transferred him here on a two year contract (amazing!); I’m working as an interior designer. We are embracing the adventure and immersing ourselves in Hong Kong life; there’s no better way to get to know a city than live there. On the weekends we’re getting out of our 440 sq ft apartment, taking advantage of Hong Kong’s proximity to many popular destinations in Asia, and exploring as much as possible. You can find us at A Life Shift where we document our experience relocating to Asia, life shift to living and working in Hong Kong, and adventures beyond.
