The Adventure Begins
So life as contemporary nomads officially begins in Hong Kong. First stop Mirador Mansions in Tsim Sha Tsui, mecca for budget travelers. We spent our first two nights in Cosmic Guesthouse (booked from Germany) in what appeared to be a slightly spruced up prison cell with the craziest shower I have ever seen. It had 5 shower heads – like some kind of medieval torture device. Despite the amazing shower experience, we decided to switch to “Well Yet Hotel.” Still a small room, but much nicer and brighter – and, at $32 a night, the price is right in one of the world’s most expensive cities.
