CHINA TRIP - October 2015

For anyone who is interested we've been on a package holiday to China. Viv has wanted to go for a long time & I was going to organise it last October for our fiftieth wedding anniversary but we decided to have a family holiday instead & took our family to Disneyland Paris instead. Then I got a special offer through the Internet earlier this year for a fifteen day package holiday to China, including a five day trip down the Yangtze river. It looked nice & cheap compared to some others I had researched & it covered all the main sights we wanted to see so I thought we might as well take a chance & I booked it for October this year.

This is a diary of our trip to China. I've done it mainly so that we can now sit back & reflect on what was a hectic, action packed holiday, where the days passed by in a blur of activities. Long distance flights to & from China together with three internal air flights & lots of coach travel left little time for relaxation. Even the five days on the cruise down the Yangtze river through the Three Gorges included several excursions. Who needs sleep anyway?
