All packed up and ready to leave! All that I have left to rely on is my own personality and my backpack to help me get by on yet another trail of discovery! The only difference between leaving New Zealand this time for travel is that I have a one way ticket, not a return and to that point my emotions are mixed.

I am excited about discovering people and lands beyond my own, but New Zealanders are great at installing a fear of the unknown and I have heard nearly every ill fated travel experience that there is to hear about the countries I am destined in. These stories make me more determined and more fascinated by the world beyond my own. Besides, I have come to discover that many travellers don't respect the cultures or environments that they choose to travel through - a sure recipe for ill fated happenings. Anyway, that's what I am telling myself.

I fly out at 10am tomorrow morning - Hong Kong here I come. My mother, father, Maria (one of my sisters), Anna and Nicholas (niece and nephew) along with my dear friends; Tasha, Jonathan and Rebecca are coming along as witnesses to my leaving.

I will figure out where to stay during my 10 hour flight and I have nothing planned for Hong Kong as of yet. I do plan to ease myself into travel though, as I will be meeting up with some family friends and a friend from home. Lets see how it goes...
