A Saturday Hike with the Royal Geographical Society

Today I went on a prearranged hike with the RGS of HK to Tung Peng Chau Island, just kilometers from the coast of China. A teacher from school invited me because her husband was leading the excursion, and she thought I may enjoy the trip.

The day included 3+ hours on a ferry boat with spectacular views, a hike around the circumference of a beautiful, and historically significant, semi-deserted island, and an interesting lunch prepared by local villagers. We didn't get a chance to swim, although it would have been a perfect oasis for a quick dip.

You can find the RGS write-up here.
