Ok, it is a might, but there is a strong chance that I will be later on this year!

My mum is a freelance radio presenter/producer. She has been offered the job of covering the Olympics out in China, specifically for her, the equestrian events, which are in Hong Kong.

Now, this would be awesome. Firstly, mum isn't certain whether she has time to go out there. Secondally, she gets paid to go out there, not the rest of us. So, yeah, we'd have to fund ourselves. We've got accomadation once out there, so its just the flights.

Fingers crossed...!

Don't rest until you have persuaded your mum to take the job, save loads of money, as if by magic you have all of Asia on your doorstep.........Lucky git!!!

I would actually love to go to Hong Kong - and as you said, the rest of Asia is easily accesible - like China...Man it would be awesome...I'll pay for myself if it means persuading them to go!

Use the sad puppy dog eyes - Mom's can't resist those (unless you use them for everything).

Good luck with the persuasion techniques and gathering the funds to pay your way!!! It would be an awesome trip, that's for sure!! ;)
