Hi All, after a whole day of travelling, we have arrived China safe and sound! On our way to the hotel now, looking forward to the city views!
So we are down to one last sleep before we travel. Everyone has been busily packing and checking they have everything for the trip. We leave from the QEO at 6am after arriving at 5:40am so we can pack our bags and say our goodbyes, or see you laters.
We wish everyone a safe and happy trip to China. Keep checking the blogs to see where we have been each day.
Another predeparture day has come and gone. Today we learned more to make our trip a success such as washing our shirt, bartering and using the train system. Also the Mayor Rod Fyffe came to see us and wish us a great learning journey. See above on the phrases link for pronunciations for certain bartering phrases with Shengjie.
Here are some pictures from our first predeparture day.
