The Road Taken: Back in 2011, I went on a study abroad opportunity in Hong Kong, China. Besides the schooling, every weekend we went on a new adventure to explore as much as we could.
One weekend a group of my classmates decided to go to Cheung Chau Island. I, of course, tagged along. We hiked around the island for a bit, looking for the path that lead to a small private beach. After getting lost a couple of times, and asking for help from the locals with our limited Cantonese, we finally found the path!
The path was more like a very long hike up and down the mountain. On a scorching hot summer morning, we wondered if we would ever reach the beach. But the views, the peace, the oneness with our surroundings, and the greenery were phenomenal! And it was worth it.
Definitely one of the best roads I’ve ever taken. I would do it again any day!
