This HK trip was our first family trip abroad. “Family” defined as me and my son, my aunt and her two children. They’re the closest family I have, my dad and my aunt being the only siblings. I am an only child and I’ve always treated my cousins (my aunt’s kids) as siblings.
This trip happened after a year that the youngest cousin graduated from college and my aunt retired and so, we have time and money for a trip abroad. This was also after all the “renovations” and “extensions” in the house were finished, as most retirees’ project was. My son was almost 7 at this time and so he can do most things on his own. Thankfully, he loves traveling as much as I do, so waking up early and waiting at the airport is no biggie for him.
