I moved to Hong Kong in 2012. My first trip to Asia. On this small island, there are bright lights and busy streets, beautiful beaches, ferry rides and junk boats, wet markets and night markets, and buildings that soar into the sky. I was fascinated by the fusion of faces, places, cultures and identities. I spent a year working 6 days a week. Sunday was my only full day off -my weekend- so I spent Sundays doing special things – taking trips, discovering more about the city and myself, and sometimes just catching up on sleep!
A year later, I embarked on a different challenge – moving to Edinburgh and transitioning from being a teacher to a student. I worked and studied part-time, and often found myself working on the shop floor on Sundays.
This year, I’m in Bangkok and I’m recapturing Sundays. I’m exploring a new city, finding things to do on Sundays and keeping hold on that Sunday feeling all week long.
