Now the visa

I have paid for my ticket to China, this time with Cathay Pacific Airlines which will take me via Hong Kong. I have paid for my plane ticket, and I have got all my documents for the Visa and pllaned to do that today, but I was called in to work at the College as another teacher had called in sick.

So I will have to wait until next week to do it.

I have also told the college that I have only four weeks left to work before I go, so that is all arranged now.

I'll have to start preparing to go now - as time will rush by me and again I will be stressed the last week.

I'm looking forward to going with Cathay - I have not flown with them before but the bonus for me is that they fly via Hong Kong, which I have not visited before. I really am looking forward to that. On the way to China I will only have a few hours in Hong Kong, but on the return journey I will have three nights there so I hope to do one or two day tours and perhaps some shopping.

I'm still looking for a good back to take. My favourite bag is showing signs of wear and tear and as I now have to find a way to carry my big camera too, I hope to get something that makes life easy to carry all. I like little back packs and have been eyeing one off at a shop near the Fortitude Valley shops, and I'm also thinking I will wait until I get to China.

I will be working only three mornings a week from now on (I've switched from afternoons) as there has been a re arrangement of teaching staff at the college. I do find it very tiring and could not work for five days a week any more.

I'm also working on my new business. Click here to look at the new website. It still has a lot of work to do but slowly but surely it is improving.

The journey continues for you, part 3 now?

Make sure you get as many pics and information you can gather about China.

I want to read a book about your journeys, Elly.

Take care while you prepare!
