T-1: Bye-bye Europe, Hello China!

Tomorrow at 9 a.m. we (Susi, Franz and I) will be already sitting in our train to Frankfurt – I can hardly await our three-week trip to China. Visas are issued, travel and language guides prepared, important addresses & stuff printed out, and my suitcase is (nearly) packed.. well, I still don’t have my rucksack and I’m quite sure I’ll forget something really important anyway.. πŸ˜‰

Globe with Coarse Schedule
China Trip - Coarse Schedule

Here’s our very coarse schedule: We’ll spend our first few days in Hong Kong & Macau, before we’ll be going up-country and heading to Guilin, Zhangjiajie, Huangshan, Hangzhou and finally Shanghai, where we’ll be happily awaited. Finally we’ll take the high speed train to Beijing and spend the last week there. Only the first days are already precisely planned in terms of accommodation and transfer, but we’re trusting in our friends’ help and guidance as we want to be flexible and spontaneous throughout the journey. Thanks in advance to our fellow students, especially Jacqueline, Aaron and Xuanli – this trip would be literally impossible without you!

I don’t know how often I’ll be able to share my impressions with you via this website, but I promise to provide some news at least once in a while. Have fun at home in Europe and enjoy your holidays πŸ˜›
