After a smooth business class flight aboard Cathay from NRT, I had three hours in Hong Kong before my first lie-flat experience.

Cathay has more lounge varieties than Chevy trucks. As a transit passenger, I was given access to The Arrival Lounge, a quiet sanctuary in the middle of the bustling HKG airport. With a few hours to relax, I setup my own mobile work station, asked for a glass of champagne, and feasted on wieners and onion rings.

Seriously, baby wieners

Since it was late in the evening, the lounge was quiet and empty. I spent my time reviewing the complex itinerary instead of TPOL’s new norm- walking around, taking pictures. Maybe it was because I wasn’t in ‘blog mode’ but I can’t recall a lounge that was more comfortable than this one. I felt like I was unwinding at home, not in Hong Kong moments away from catching a flight to Australia.

As part of my RTW itinerary, I would cross through this lounge again. Again I would find it empty yet peaceful.
