We went hiking today! We did Temple Hill, which is actually not too bad a hike. It was tiring, of course, but doable. So if I can do it, then you probably can too! 😊
We took a few wrong turns, and we also stopped numerous times to take photos, but all up, it took us around 2.5 hours round trip. Not too bad! That’s actually a really short hike for HK, there are TONS of hikes that are 5+ hours. But a 2-hour hike, round trip, is perfect for me. I’ve gotta look for more hikes like this one 😊
It was a really good day to go hiking: it was COLD! I had to bring my not-so-puffy jacket with me today to give me an additional layer. And I also brought a scarf to keep my neck warm.
There weren’t too many people on this hike either, so social distancing was barely an issue. I’m not sure why there weren’t too many people on the hike today, if it was because of COVID; because it’s during the Christmas / New Year week; because it’s mid-week; or simply because this hike isn’t very popular or isn’t very well known. But I was happy for the quiet walk. It’s always nice to get away from the crowded streets of HK!
Now I’m just too tired to do anything. I also haven’t eaten much today either, which isn’t helping the situation! 😂 And it’s cold, so my body’s probably using more energy than usual to keep itself warm. So maybe I should go and eat dinner, huh 😜
I’ll also go and do some research on what to do tomorrow, NYE. Fireworks are cancelled this year. I was thinking of going down somewhere along Victoria Harbour to watch them, but apparently we’d be watching nothing if we did 😔 Plus this freezation isn’t making me want to do anything! Ughhhh…. Typical of 2020 to end the year with a cold front, literally and figuratively 🤣😒
