I'm using this entry to explain our change in travel plans this year. As many of you know, in October 2013 we booked a trip to China. We were both strangely nervous and for various reasons (excuses) by March of this year we paid a transfer fee with our tour company and moved our funds to visit Europe. About a week or so ago our goddaughter, Molly, a mere 16 years old, hopped on a plane to Japan. She was our inspiration and we decided if she has the courage, so do we. We paid another change fee, booked a new trip to China, and paid for the trip in-full. Our tour is nonrefundable so barring any medical emergencies, we shall be visiting China in a few months! The only step remaining in the process is completing our VISA applications.
We both agree we are excited, we feel good about this trip, and we booked an upgraded tour this year ~ we are going to see Beijing and Shanghai plus we are taking a four day river cruise on the Yangtze River. We are flying Air China for all of our flights ~ a total of five flights to/from/within China. No Malaysia Airlines for us. Whatever irrational fears we had are gone and now the countdown has begun.
We are excited to share this new journey with everyone!
