Arrival In Asia

First stop outside of Canada on our trip was Hong Kong, where we would connect with our flight to Kuala Lumpur.

As we deplaned it was only the second time that I had set foot outside of Canada or the United States going to a foreign destination.  The first was in 2011 when I went to Geneva, Switzerland for a Kiwanis International convention.  After leaving the plane we followed the instructions and found that we had to leave the secure area so that we could go through security again to make our connection.  Not exactly sure how that works, however it does benefit the beverage industry as we had to divest ourselves of any bottles prior to re-entry.

After re-entry we then checked where we should go for our connection and discovered there was a considerable distance from where we were located to our departure gate.  Thankfully, a Cathay Pacific golf cart driver picked us up, along with an elderly Chinese lady travelling to Viet Nam, and drove us, seemingly forever, to our gate.   As our connecting flight was only two hours after arrival it would have been a grueling trek on foot methinks.

As it was quite early in the morning there were few stores open in the airport, which for the most part was good as buying things at the beginning of an adventure is something to be avoided.  There was, however, a Chinese restaurant open and we were able to have a light dim sum as we waited.

Soon it was time to board and we settled into our seats for the 4 hour flight to Kuala Lumpur.  Once again, we were flying Cathay Pacific, and they did not disappoint.

Next we touch down in Malaysia.

About Richard Le Sueur

In the past I never considered that I lead an overly interesting life, however I have since learned that "interesting" is very subjective and has a variety of concepts. I have not been much of a dare-devil or thrill-seeker but I have done things and been places that many others have not. It seems that there are those who enjoy my recollecting of these occasions, and that is one of the reasons for this blog. Another reason is to share some of my thoughts because generally, sharing is good. I had a career in Canada's military, have worked for various charities and non profits, had several businesses and now work on a casual basis at a local Royal Canadian Mounted Police detachment. I have lived in Canada literally coast to coast to coast and yet seem to have merely touched the surface of what our country has to offer. I have two wonderful children, and through marriage, have gained two more along with seven grandchildren. I love people and yet spend an inordinate time by myself. I am not shy about saying that I like/respect/admire someone, may offer criticisms of those I don't, but I refuse to badmouth or speak in a derogatory form about anyone. Some of what I say may be thoughtful, some witty, some perhaps silly. Whatever it is, it is all from me. I welcome any who wish to follow me, and I welcome any comments, as long as they are not rude or vulgar, in which case they will be deleted.

    I absolutely loved the Hong Kong airport when I was there in 2001 and Cathay Pacific is probably the best airline I've ever flown. You lucky duck!
