    Have returned versus return

    Dear Teachers

    Which one of the following use of "return" is correct? I think 2) is better, as the "return" has not yet happened. What do you reckon?

    1) I will give you a call after I have returned to Hong Kong
    2) I will give you a call after I return to Hong Kong

    Regards

    Anthony the learner
