Twelve Hours in…Hong Kong

This month, I’m counting down my top 27 adventures at 27. Next up: Hong Kong. Hong Kong is one of those cities I can never say no to, if even for a brief window of time. So when we found a flight back from our week in Bali with a 12-hour layover in HK, we jumped on the chance […]
