About Cicerone

  • Last trip
    Lucknow, Agra, Bangalore & Delhi for work and some fun mixed in
  • Next trip
    Vancouver and Bellingham Washington for retirement-scouting (April)
  • Favorite destinations
    The balcony of my flat in Hong Kong at sunset, with glass of wine
  • Best travel tip
    Less is more.
  • Never travels without
    My tiny statue of Ganesha, who brings good luck along on all my journeys.
  • Interests and hobbies
    Hiking. The above photo is taken on a hike in Hong Kong. While most guidebooks focus on our skyscrapers and shopping malls, the trail pictured starts 10 minutes by cab from Central. It ends close to the waterfront at Stanley Market. This walk, combined with a meal along the waterfront in Stanley is my idea of just about the perfect Hong Kong day. But so many visitors seem to spend their time shopping for fake Prada bags in congested Kowloon. For details on this walk or others, contact me at [email protected]
