China 16 May 2018 Wu Gorge

We woke in time this morning to go to the Tai Chi session on the top deck. It was an interesting half hour, mostly attended by westerners. I was surprised how flexible I was/wasn’t!  Some movements were much easier to do than others, Deb thinks she might be a bit sore tomorrow morning, I’m still in denial. Continue reading

Adelaide to Shanghai via Sydney Thursday 10th May 2018

Deb slept well last night, me not so much. I detest alarm clocks, I just dont trust them.  We were up at 4am showered, finished packing and were in an Uber by 4.25am.  It took a bit over 15mins. We were out at the airport, checked in all the way to Shanghai, through security, of course I got bomb tested, again!,  and we were standing out in front of the Qantas Club waiting for it to open at 4:50am.
