Writing to you all the way from where I am now – sunny Spain. I’ve been contemplating a move for a while now, and while it’s not permanent, it very well may be depending on several circumstances. Should I return to the fragrant harbour or not? What do you think?
After being down and disillusioned for a while in Hong Kong, I thought leaving for a time would be healthy for me. To help me regain my soul, dramatically speaking. And Spain has proven to be a balm – a country almost the total opposite of Hong Kong, where people take long siestas in the middle of the day, where bankers stop working at 2pm (gasp!), where life is nowhere near about the money but about passion, happiness, love, enjoyment…
On the other hand I’m also beginning to appreciate Hong Kong from afar. Especially the kind of people I would meet there (ironically, also the one thing that drove me away). All intelligent, successful, ambitious… But in Spain, humbler yet happy, and so many good looking people who just don’t realize it! And men who can dance! I love it 😉
I wish I could move to Spain, honestly, but the economy and job market here is terrible. Not to mention the fact that I need to actually speak Spanish first before even considering getting a job here. But that’s all part of the plan. I’ll be back in Asia by July 10 (boo hoo!) and will probably be moving to Tokyo in August (or back to Hong Kong, who knows?!)
So don’t miss me too much – I won’t let you. I’ve got a lot of long overdue Hong Kong posts PLUS I’ll most probably be back by next year at the latest 😉 Keep updated by following me on Instagram or on my new blog Morena Travels. 🙂
