For some reason (maybe my Mom), whenever our dogs try to dig on the bed or on a couch pillow, I ask them, “Are you digging a hole to China?” Well, this time we really are. Not digging, but today we are flying to Beijing to begin a two week tour of this far away place. We’ll fly 12 hours from Seattle to Beijing and then begin our tour, which will include stops in Beijing, Suzhou, Wuxi, Shanghai, and Xi’an. We’ll see the Forbidden City, the Great Wall, and the Terracotta Warriors.
Honestly, China was not on our “list”, but we found a great deal on Groupon and decided to go for it. It will be our first visit to Asia and we are looking forward to learning about a new culture and exploring new territory.
There is something called “The Great Firewall” in China, which is said to limit Internet access. We are hoping to scale the wall and bring you some regular updates about our journey. If the tech gods are smiling on us, we’ll post updates here on our new travel blog. You can also find entires from past trips here as well. Comments are always welcomed.
