Hiking: Around Violet Hill

Yes, I've been hitting the trail and exploring our surroundings. This time, a combination of the Wong Nai Chung Gap history trail, the Tsz Lo Lan Shan Path that runs around Violet Hill and the Tai Tam reservoir.

Hiking: How to clean and store a water pack

One thing that is really essential for me, when I go hiking, is my water pack.
