A journal entry from: World Tour 2008

Just an update. I'm still in Hong Kong. I've moved to my third host here in Hong Kong. She lives in Yuen Long, quite far from town but I like to see other places than just central Hong Kong so it is nice. She has a beautiful house too. Maybe I should explain how couchsurfing.com works.

 Since I left Sweden 10 days ago I've been sleeping at different people's home. People I didn't knew before leaving. And I think have got 3 new friends in London thanks to CS (Couchsurfing.com). And around 10 new friends in Hong Kong thanks to CS. Its a community where you search for a place to sleep in the town where you are going for normally 2 nights. It is not a way to just get a place to sleep for free. Most of all it is to meet people and learn from one anothers culture. It is like a good integration path into society even if you are staying in a town just for one day. So go on the site and try it - www.couchsurfing.com

Make a "couchsearch" for your next travel destination and see how many people you can meet. If you dont dare to sleep at someones place you could just go out for a coffee or a dinner with them!

Last days I've been exploring even more in Hong Kong. Though it rest so much to see. But I guess it is a town Iwould return to, since it is a big network hub for flights around the world.

Today it is cold so I will go to museums, even though my original plan was to go to the mountains for the view over town.

It's really nice to get comments, and I'm gonna start reply to them, so dont forget to look for the older diary entries to see my response to your comments.

 And dont forget to watch the pictures at picasaweb.google.com/michael.berggren82 !!

So maybe good morning to you en Europe!

Here it is already afternoon
