Beginnings of My Month in China

I have finally exhausted my pictures from my weekend out east, and can now move onto sharing my month-long trip to China. Much planning and attention to detail goes into figuring out a month-long vacation for a family of five with many different schedules, so it is always a very hard-fought victory for my parents when we finally embark on this biennial trip. By how the tickets worked out, I flew alone on the long 13-hour flight. I was quite content with this arrangement, as my little siblings are quite annoying to be locked with for a 13 hour flight  traveling alone internationally is an exhilarating experience that I love. With a seemingly bottomless glass of wine and many free in-flight TV episodes/movies at my disposal, the 13 hours didn't seem as long as I remembered.
