Packed and Ready to Go – Day -1

Tomorrow, we catch our flight to Beijing.  On Wednesday, we expect to walk on the Great Wall of China. 

Since we have several flights inside China, we may have an issue with our luggage.  We are allowed one checked bag per person with a weight limit of 44 pounds (20 kilo).  I am a gadget person and gadgets add extra pounds.

With a 13 hour time difference, I expect we will have MAJOR jet lag.  From what I was told, the body will adjust to a time zone change of one hour per day.  That being the case, we will be more than halfway through the trip before we adjust to the local time.

We have a 7 day tour inside China before we board the ship in Hong Kong.  Then we will spend the next two weeks on the Azamara Quest.  We hope to update our blog and facebook as often as we can.   Our trip will take us to China, Viet Nam, Cambodia, Thailand, and Singapore.
