I had been frustrated by the approaching summer break before the graduation, because I don’t know what to do in the long long summer. So I was happy that my friend Gareth called me to ask if I am interested in going for a trip to Saipan.

It’s an unspoken rule that we leave from Hong Kong since I live in Guangzhou and my lovely Gareth lives in Shenzhen. Our flight, UO42, is a direct flight from HKG to SPN. It’s a 5-hour flight operated by HK Express with a A320neo.
It was nearly 4:00 in the morning when we finally got cleared by the Border Control. We decided to sleep for a couple of hours before releasing for a four-day trip.

When we wake up, the weather was superb. We quickly changed and went to the beach.

Since I left without any sunscreen, I was gifted a beautiful tan line.
After getting some sun burn, we had our late lunch at Hard Rock Cafe near the DFS downtown.
We then decided to wander around the downtown. (actually went straight to the American Memorial Park)

Both of us are exhausted to death due to the 3-hour sleep, I fell asleep on the bus towards the hotel.

After quick shower, both of us sank into our lovely bed, with Gareth starved and bought some chips in the midnight, well, that’s another story.
