We're home!!

So as a lot of you would probably guess by now if you follow me on twitter & Instagram or are even my friend on facebook- Dan and I returned to the UK from our trip on Friday!

It was a big big secret since none of Daniel's family knew- it was a complete surprise for them. My brother and much of my family also didn't know.

The last week in Hong Kong was both sad and lovely. It was sad to leave but it was also lovely to know we were returning to our comforts and to the English things that we enjoy!

Our return home has been a month in the making, sending a lot of boxes home shipped as we just had too much stuff, preparing tickets and sorting a lot of things out in Hong Kong to ensure our return home was straight-forward.

DID- Dialogue in the Dark, Hong Kong

Today Daniel and I experience 'Dialogue in the Dark'. We were taken through a series of every day scenes by someone who is visually impaired in complete darkness. We are taken around by a man named Jack. For 75 minutes we experienced the world in a completely different way. Such a fun, scary and humbling experience. First we went outside and learnt about our surroundings with trees, plants, soil, grass and sand, then we went on a boat trip with wind and rain. This was followed by visiting the town and local shops. Afterwards we travelled to a theatre and listened to some films and music as well as exchanging money to buy drinks in a bar. Doing everything in pitch black with nothing but your hearing, smell, taste and touch is more difficult than it seems. It was absolutely inspiring. You can visit their website here. I'd seriously recommend anyone to try this!
