April through Instagram

Hello again strangers!

I can’t believe it’s been over a month since I last updated my little slice of internet pie! As you can see from the title of this post, I’m rather behind on blogging…

(Just in case you’re interested: I headed back to the UK for a month to see my friends and family, after quitting my job mid-May, as I hadn’t been back since arriving in HK 2 and a half years ago! As most of my friends live all over the country, I was gallivanting all over the place. When I returned to HK, I was busy job-searching and started my new job a week or so later).

More importantly, I’ve finally found a spare moment to tell you about what we got up to in April!

Most of these Instagram snaps were taken on our epic trip to Japan 😀
