Flight to Hong Kong Booked!

Let the countdown begin! I just finished filing my taxes for 2015, and booked my flight out to Asia… Oh boy, things are starting to feel a bit surreal now…

Really, I don’t have a lot of time remaining to get things squared away before I depart for the “Next Chapter” of my life…

Tentatively speaking, I am heading out on Wednesday, June 8:

As much as I love Tokyo and Japan, we are going to get the party started in Hong Kong… Right now, it’s still premature for me to say how long I’ll be staying out there for… All I know is that I’ve never been to Hong Kong before, so it’s safe to stay that I’m pretty stoked about this upcoming trip!

What could cause my plans to change?

Well, I’m hoping Big BrotherΒ is gonna tag along with me, but seeing as how he’s still employed at the moment, hmm… that might present a challenge.

As I’m typing this, he’s en route back to the states from Shanghai… He sent me this pic earlier this morning, so as I can clearly see, he’s traveling quite nicely (as always!):


When it comes to traveling, it’s always more fun when you’re rollin’ with a travel hacking guru who knows all the ins and outs of the system to help you save $$$.


C’mon bro, I know you love SE Asia!


Let’s do this right!

Nice timing! I take it you booked it before the AA Deval?

You know it!

Yup! Looking forward to it!

Can’t wait to see what happens in this next step of your adventure!

Thanks, I’m curious myself to see what happens next πŸ™‚

Best wishes!

Why HK? Isn’t it even more expensive than the BA? Curious..

Great point there… In my case, I have an aunt that lives out in Hong Kong. Yup, HK is expensive, so I probably won’t stay for too long. Maybe 3 months? Although I might use it as my hub, or home base in Asia where I drop off my bags and stuff.

Long-term, definitely, I need to go somewhere much cheaper! πŸ™‚

Take care!

Just a one-way ticket for now? Great job. No guts, no glory!


10 FI Fighter March 22, 2016 at 10:13 am


That’s right! One way ticket…

I am in HK starting June 1st. Would be great to grab coffee if you have time.


12 FI Fighter March 22, 2016 at 10:15 am


That would be awesome! For sure, I will have time πŸ˜‰

I’ll keep you updated via blog updates. I hope I won’t have to change flights, but I can’t say definitively right now that I’ll be in HK on June 8.

Take care!

Awesome, you had helped me with advice on finding turnkey properties about a year ago. I’m an active travel hacking aficionado and a digital nomad with my own business so I’m sure we will have a few things to chat about πŸ™‚

I’m sure we will! Can’t wait!

Take care!
