What did go quite so well was the way in which I planned my trip there, not everything was bad, my private limo airport transfer from Hong Kong airport was great, the hotel was perfect and my schedule was timed to perfection. With this being said, I really struggled with downtime, I did not plan enough things to do during my wait times, I forgot some vital pieces
Working is almost mandatory for all of us to earn a living and be able to enjoy the little ‘materialistic’ joys of life along with spending on the essentials. Whether through time restraints, availability, experience or pay, a lot of us will settle for something we may not love doing.
