When on a tour in a foreign country, it is always much cheaper to take the bus or train instead of the taxi when going home from the hotel to the airport (and vice versa). Last month when we were in Osaka, Japan, we were lucky because the hotel was a stone’s throw away from the train station. It was no sweat to take the train instead of the expensive taxi. But last week in Hongkong, I had a difficult time carrying our baggage from the hotel to the train station in going home from the hotel to the airport. I had to admit to my wife that I was very tired and my hands were aching. It took so many rest period before we finally reached the train platform. So we agreed that next time we go back to Hongkong, we might as well book in another hotel that is near the train station or just get a taxi for convenience.
