Monthly Archives: January 2016
2015 has been a very special year for me as a professional tourist. I made four trips including two round the world journeys. By the end of the year, I only spent 71 nights at home and 294 nights out of Hong Kong. I decide to name 2015 as a Record Year for good reasons.
I was in Maldives with my brother Lawrence, my nephew Wai Leuk and my HKU friends in 1997. We stayed in a resort on Paradise Island followed by a short stay in Sri Lanka. This time, Lawrence and I revisited Maldives for three days with Sally, my sister-in-law.
I don’t know Qatar though I have spent a few hours in Doha awaiting a connecting flight. As Qatar Airways has a direct flight to Maldives, I decide to make a brief stop-over in this rich Gulf country after Lebanon.
