Only three days to go and we will be flying to Guilin in China via Hong Kong. When we booked this trip last August it seemed impossibly far away but now there is still so much to do and so little time. On Thursday we plan to catch a train to the airport from North Wollongong at around 4.30 pm. The flight is due to leave at 10.20 pm, arriving in Hong Kong at 5.20 am. We have nine hours to fill in before our flight to Guilin where we will be met by a taxi driver and taken to our hotel in Yangshuo.

My next post will hopefully be written from the Yangshuo Phoenix Pagoda Fonglu Retreat Hotel.
