There’s nothing more humbling and inspiring than traveling to an unknown country. Although I travel to Asia every year, this was my first time in Hong Kong. It’s a unique destination that has adopted different cultural influences, all while remaining its rich history. There’s a certain energy and richness that Hong Kong offers that I’ve never experienced elsewhere.
Born in Texas and raised in a small town in Northern California gave me the opportunity to dream big. Although it seemed surreal at the time, I’ve always dreamt of living a glamorous life in a big city. (You may recall in this post HERE and this video HERE where I bring you back to my hometown, and share with you my love story with Gold. ) So when LoveGold asked me to wanderlust along to Asia with their glamorous gold jewels from Hoorsenbuhs, Elena Votsi and Temple St. Clair, I couldn’t have been more excited! Although I’ve always associated gold with glamour & richness, there’s a certain warmth that comes along with it. Similarly to Hong Kong, there is an undeniable energy & richness to the city, but what I found most comforting was the open & warm hearted people.
Gold has become a part of my identity. There is rarely a day when I go without it , or in this case Wanderlust without it.
