China London Shenzhen Travel United Kingdom

Farewell Britannia

As the saying goes “a goodbye isn’t painful unless you’re never going to say hello again” and so it is with my imminent departure from the UK tomorrow. I’ll be back, I’m just not sure when! My flight to Hong Kong departs from London Heathrow tomorrow at midday and will touch down at 7 am local time Wednesday morning after eleven-and-a-half hours of economy-class boredom. Then the real fun begins.

I won’t actually have any time in Hong Kong this time as I’ll be hopping directly on a coach across the border into mainland China and my final destination of Shenzhen (about 1 hour away). During the next two weeks, I’ll be staying in a hotel while I find myself somewhere more permanent to live (fingers crossed).

I’ll be blogging as much as I can, time permitting, here and keep an eye on my FriendFeed / Flickr photostream for the latest goings-on there. See you on the other side!
