Travel Plans! – For the China Trips

March 4, 2016

The time draws near for our travels! I am very excited to be getting ready to spend time in Beijing with everyone!

If you are looking for the packing lists again here they are: Packing List China 2015

Here also is the list of ideas for host gifts: Host Gifts

I wanted to make sure you had all of the flight information for the upcoming trip. You can track all of the flights live on flightaware.com . Starting on March 13th with Daylight Savings Time (spring forward!), China is 12 hours ahead of the East coast of the US. (Before Daylight Savings Time, China is 13 hours ahead.) Each group will post on the blog as soon as we can that we have landed safely! I’ll post from Beijing Airport about the arrival of both groups.
