On Our Way

Day 1 - Brisbane to Shanghai.

rain 16 °C
View Tom & Jen's "Continental Drift" on jkerkin's travel map.

We finally got packed, Rick graciously dropped us at the airport and started on our 110 day travels. Great relief to get on the plane and just shut off home life, well for a little while, and just enjoy each day as it comes. We now need to get into travel mode, check your passport 10 times, check you have all your bags, where is my next stop and hotel, food, get money, pack and unpack your bag etc, etc. Sounds simple! Its been 20 years since I "back packed" and a lot has changed. Looking forward to seeing how China has changed since I lived in Beijing for 6 months in 1995.

We arrived in Shanghai, after a short stop in Singapore Airport, our driver was there and we finally arrived at our hotel at 12.30 am, 14 hours of travel, and looking forward to a shower and sleep. Fortunately Jen has Platinum Virgin so we got lounge access and priority access onto the planes. Overall no missed flights, got through customs, got our international roaming phone working and got to our first hotel.

Pre-Flight Jitters!

Packing Time

sunny 26 °C

Ok everyone, our first blog. We have shut down from work, house just about ready and its pack the bag time, Could be a late night but just looking forward to getting on the plane. Lots of pressure on me to keep this blog happening and try and see if I can load photos and maybe even on the GoPro courtesy of the YC's wedding present. Leaving with Singapore airlines with a 2 hour stop off in Singapore and then onto Shanghai.
