Lamma Island has been by far, my favorite excursion thus far. I love the outdoors and all forms of nature. Include that with some exercise and it is right up my ally. The heat was pretty intense especially at an uphill incline, but the views and the beach made it all worth it. Once we reached the beach we were able to chill out for a bit as we waited for the rest of the group to catch up. Even though the water looked dirty, I felt as if I would not be gaining the whole Hong Kong experience had I not been able to test the waters- literally. I did bring my bathing suit for a reason, so I dove right in. Well not right in, I took some precautions at first for sure. My best travel friend, Sarah, a fellow artist/photographer, and I ended the day at a local vegetarian restaurant. The island was so peaceful, I would go back in a heartbeat.
