Hong Kong


Back to Hong Kong, originally uploaded by Tak from HK.

Back to Home!

After 342 days, I finally came back Hong Kong in one piece. I have been dreaming of coming back, where I can find familiar faces, tasty Chinese food and Cantonese.

And, I really want to thank everybody who have hosted me in their places. They really make me feel different in my long journey.

Also, thanks for all those reader who read my blog. Your support keep my energy updating this blog.


在返港的航機上,在我的坐位前,放著合味道杯麵。

多少個夜闌人靜的晚上,我在幻想,在期待,期待著用筷子把這熟悉的味道放在口中的一刻,期待回到我出生的土地。

朋友,我期待著跟你們見面。但,在我們相聚的時間,請先不要問我到過甚麼地方。請告訴我,我錯失了多少重要的時刻。因為,你興高采烈的時候,我未能替你高興;你哀傷的時間,我未能在你身旁分憂。

Victoria Falls


Victoria Falls Bridge, originally uploaded by Tak from HK.

This is the end of my overland truck tour. Three weeks have been spent on the truck where laughing never end. Really enojoy every moment and I do miss everyone!

Victoria Falls, at the border of Zimbabwe and Zambia, spans 1.7km and drop over 100m cliff. However, the water level is low during this season. So, it is not so spectacular.

I did one of the best adventure activities, rafting the Zambezi rapids in the Victoria Falls which is very exciting!

P.S. I had also do Bungi jumping from the Victoria Falls Bridge which is just between the border.

The Okavango River rises in central Angola and flows southward to Namibia, then the river begin to spread over the delta. Eventually, the water is lost in 15,000 sq. km of lagoons, channels and islands. It never reach the sea.

I went for an overnight mokoro trip (wooden made canoe) which the polar using a long stick to move the mokoro.

We stayed in one of the islands and we saw water lily, dragonfly, birds, hipos, elephants and Zebra.

Etosha National Park


Etosha National Park, originally uploaded by Tak from HK.

The game drive here is not particularly exciting. But, Etosha is very dry so the animals always go to the waterholes for water. So, just wait near the waterholes and you will see different animals.

During the night, I saw rhinoceros!

I just added the vidoe of the elephant!

My camping overland tour started in Cape Town, our truck drove north to Namibia. On Day 4, we reached the Sossusvlei Dunes, beautiful sand dunes in orange color.

In the early morning of the next day, we hike up Dune 45 to view sunrise. Then, we went for desert walk to Deadvlei. An area inside the desert that used to have water in it. But, it sealed by sand dune later and the trees were dead for over nine hundreds years.

Cape of Good Hope


Cape of Good Hope, originally uploaded by Tak from HK.

It sounds not right that you miss Cape of Good Hope when you visited Cape Town. But, the weather is terrible and I hardly saw anything at the lighthouse.

The AFrican Penguin is different from the other I saw before. Still cutie!

Tomorrow, I will start my 20 day overland tour to Victoria Falls via Namibia and Botswana. This is my last journey. And...... my return flight to Hong Kong has been confirmed.
