Thousands of people travel through the Hong Kong International Airport every day – whether they are returning home, visiting for a while, or just passing through en route to another destination. Each one has memories of past travels or hopes and plans for future trips. But what about the countless objects that similarly pass through these doors: the umbrellas, the scarves, the souvenirs, electronic devices, and even valuable antiques? What stories do they have to tell as they traipse around the world at their owners’ whims?
Find out the adventures that await each of them… beyond baggage claim.

About Our Authors
Young people often struggle to be heard, but Elephant Community Press offers opportunities for students to share their ideas with friends, family and the community at large. By publishing the work of young authors, ECP aims to demonstrate that there is an audience for well-crafted and thoughtful writing, no matter how old the writers are.
Our young authors range in age from 6 to 17 and attend both local and international schools in Hong Kong. They herald from diverse backgrounds, but share with us a passion for storytelling and the belief that everyone has something worthwhile to say.
ECP has worked with students from a wide variety of schools including Canadian International, German Swiss, Kennedy, Diocesan Girls’ Junior School, St. Paul’s Co-Ed, West Island, Braemar Hill, Diocesan Boys’ School, Singapore International, French International, HKIS, Glenealy and Renaissance College.
