Hong Kong

1993 – Hong Kong, Macao and China

In September 1993, while I was working as a UN soldier in Somalia, I travelled to Hong Kong, Macao and China.

Most of the time we spent in Hong Kong, which was a British colony until 1997.

Macao

We made one day-trip to Macao, just so that we had been there before the Portugese colony would be handed back to China in 1999.

Mumbai

1993 – India

In 1993 I travelled to India with a fellow soldier who also wanted to get away from Somalia for a while. We stayed in Bombay (later renamed Mumbai) and then went on to the former hippie paradise of Goa, now a more family friendly holiday destination.
Bombay

Bombay is the capital of the state of Maharashtra, and one of the most populous cities in the world. It is the commercial and entertainment center of India.

Goa

Goa is the smallest (in terms of area) state in India, located just south of Maharashtra. The state is renowned for its beaches, and was earlier a popular destination for hippies.
