China Bound

I'm packed and excited for our trip - despite the expression reflected on my Chinese visa. I am travelling heavier than usual with luggage loaded with gifts of of Nescafe, mini Appleton rums, 5 pairs of red Olympic mittens and  several tetra paks of Pinot Grigio (for me),  winter clothing: boots, scarves, hats and work out gear. I slipped the glass bottles of rum into the shoes. We have cashews, raisins, craisins, granola bars, almonds and even a jar of peanut butter in case the exotic food fare doesn't go over well with hubby.

I didn't tell him but I slipped a set of cutlery in amongst my pj's to carry in my purse just in case the chopsticks don't deliver for him. So now all I have to do is get a good night's sleep and wake up for our great adventure to China. It's a 13.5 hour flight; just enough time to watch a few movies, finish a book, brush my teeth a few times (thankful I got the root canal this week instead of waiting for a crisis), devour a few of those culinary delights the airline serves and maybe catch a few z's. 

So stay tuned for my posts from Beijing, Xi'an and Shanghai. I predict lots of pictures of food! 


  1. DIH,
    I shall excitedly 'stay tuned' as your upcoming adventures unfold. Travel safe and guard that cutlery! (I'm confident it will be a very welcomed accessory for your very Canadian-born/oops German-minded hubby...
    Luv ya both tons!
