Day 1

Air China Here We Come

View Deb and Lyns European Winter on DebandLyn's travel map.


Technically day one of the big tour begins with a fresh wake up and my first cup of coffee in bed for sooooo long. Thanks Lyn I forgot how well you do holidays, put your clothes away, wake up early and happy to get me coffee in bed. The new Lyn.....

Our carry on back packs weigh less than 9kg for a two month trip in the coldest weather the world has to dish out. Packed and repacked with only the bare minimum, only three pairs of undies (one to wear, one to wash and a spare pair), two socks and yes just a couple of thermals and t shirts should do the trick for two months???? Oh well we can buy some authentic made in China garments if the need arises

Lyn has worked hard to get four visas, air fares, accommodations and various train tickets all booked in less than four weeks, a mega effort, lucky for night shift. It’s been a busy few weeks with guests moving in and out and back in to the bnb, the shed all sorted, the gardener and cleaner booked in and all jobs ticked off.

A huge feeling of relaxation as we are dropped off at the airport nice and early and join the long queue to check in, Air China flight is full. The flight goes smoothly with no dramas to report, the staff exceptionally efficient and very quiet passengers. Oh I nearly forget to share that Lyn managed to wear the rice from her beef meal quite well.
