This weeks photograph was taken in Hong Kong and captures the stark difference between old and new that can be found there, and throughout the rest of China.

“When I first arrived in Hong Kong and saw incredible cityscapes, the bay, and wooded trees as far as the eye could see, I immediately knew this was a special place. While sitting at Tsim Sha Tsui and looking out over the bay, I saw this old-looking sailboat float past, and snapped a photo. Only later did I realize how it captures the mood of Hong Kong”.   — Reed Kleinman, Co-Owner of Smart Home Solver

I’d Like to thank Alysa & Reed for sharing this great image with me for this weeks cover.  Think this might be my desktop photo for a while!  As travellers, we often leave our homes empty for, sometimes, long periods.  Alysa & Reed have built a hugely informative site covering all the major brands of smart home technology!  Well worth a few minutes of your time to secure your most valuable possession!
