Hello Kitty “Around The World” Journey
Saying farewell to her friends and already missing her mother’s apple pie, Hello Kitty was ready to venture into new horizons, meeting new friends and spreading the message of love along the way. As an ambassador of love and friendship, with Passport, T-shirts, and luggage ready, Hello Kitty began her fantastic adventure?�

Asia Beginnings
Hello Kitty put on the I ♥ HK mini T-shirt and said goodbye to Dear Daniel. Departing Hong Kong, Hello Kitty began her journey around the world and aspired to spread the “I Love Hong Kong” message to all corners of the world.

The first stop of the journey was China. To experience the rich Chinese heritage in style, Hello Kitty put on a traditional Chinese cotton-wadded jacket filled with delicate embroidery. Impressed by the Chinese’s hospitality, Hello Kitty furthered her journey to Japan and Korea, two of Hello Kitty?s favorite countries. In Japan, Hello Kitty changed into a traditional Japanese Kimono while admiring the beauty of Sakura blossoms in Kyoto. Surrounded by beautiful scenery, classic architecture and a pink sea of Sakura blossoms, Hello Kitty adorned her hair with cute Sakura accessories. Although the scenery was beautiful, Hello Kitty had to proceed with the journey. Moving to Korea, the last stop in Asia, Hello Kitty was inspired by the rich culture and changed into a Korean “Hanbok”, and playfully posing with the classic Korean fan.

European Romance
Leaving Asia, Hello Kitty stepped on a train and embarked on a romantic journey through Europe. United Kingdom is indeed a familiar country for Hello Kitty as it was where she was born. In a classic British “Sherlock Holmes” inspired outfit, Hello Kitty browsed the flea market and looked through her magnifying glass to hunt for hidden treasures. With a “choo”, the train brought Hello Kitty to the Netherlands. Amidst the scenic backdrop of windmills and tulips, Hello Kitty put on wooden clogs and a Dutch hat for a picture perfect moment.

Having thoroughly enjoyed touring around the different countries and sightseeing, Hello Kitty was ready for a more challenging adventure. In Switzerland, she proceeded to the apex of Mount Jungfraujoch and stepped into her skiing gear, swishing through steep slopes. Hello Kitty arrived in Spain seeking more thrills and excitement. Inspired by the ancient sport of bullfighting, Hello Kitty changed into a smart matador outfit and was determined to brave the bullfight challenge.

The Mysterious Middle East
Following Europe, Hello Kitty ventured into the mysterious realm of the Middle East - a world filled with mystery and lost civilization. In Egypt, Hello Kitty relived the Kingdom of the Pharaoh and put on a snake-shaped head piece for her role as an ancient Egyptian warrior.
Although the world of classical civilization is intriguing, Hello Kitty was keen to follow her plan and proceed to experience the “American Dream” in North America.

South and North America’s Passion
Breathing the air of freedom, Hello Kitty arrived in New York. Hello Kitty mischievously imitated the pose of the Statue of Liberty by lifting up the torch and shouted aloud - “I Love Freedom”. Throughout the journey, Hello Kitty met numerous interesting and inspiring new friends, and in Tahiti, Hello Kitty was greeted by passionate and sexy Tahitian girls. In a hula skirt, Hello Kitty joined the girls for a round of exotic dancing.

Leaving Tahiti, Hello Kitty finally arrived in Mexico. Filled with Mexican rhythm and music, it was indeed a perfect moment for Hello Kitty to take a rest after an exciting yet memorable journey.
