The builder is in Guangzhou for business. I will be meeting him there and then we will be checking out Yangshuo and Hong Kong. I am excited for our first trip overseas together. Plus I get to revisit one of my favourite cities, Hong Kong.
This is my first trip I have actively sought out eco minded accommodation. I suggested camping in Yangshauo but that was met with a weary look from the builder. Our original choice was an eco-hotel but with it being booked out we decided on another sustainable option. I am super excited to be exploring this pocket of mainland China with my best friend.
It will be interesting to attempt another plastic free and waste free holiday. I learnt valuable lessons from my trip to Myanmar that I can apply on this trip.
It does feel a little contradictive to announce I am going travelling on my eco minded blog. Travelling is a heavy polluting exercise. I don’t know if I will ever be able to say no to travel, especially when half of my family live overseas. So being vigilant about my waste and avoiding all plastic, just like I do at home, when travelling is a must for me. Perhaps I should donate a weekend to Landcare and plant trees to offset my emissions?
