Some time ago I was writing about going to the other side of the world. Well, this time I am now on the other side of the world again and not the same side as last time.

Travel to China was pretty uneventful this time and no major things happened. Some smaller delays though on our way and we got to test the new Airbus A380, which was more exciting to me than to Fangfang. It is very impressive airplane and really does everything it was supposed to do. Too bad the Lufthansa didn’t invest on the top-notch entertainment system but decided to stay with the reasonably good system. I was missing few options I had seen already with some other airlines, such as USB connectivity (according to some information, it is coming later) and much bigger movie collection (some of the competitors have basically over 100 titles in their selection).

The new experience was any way worth the extra travel time and we arrived safely to Beijing where we enjoyed some complimentary lunch with Air China before continuing onward (they had also re-made their WiFi and this time it actually worked, also with iPhones). Always nice to get some good lunch before next flight and also this time wasn’t exception, well prepared lunch will always beat the airplane food although I am some kind of weird fan of airline food. Bonus was to get some ice cream to celebrate the vacation.

After arriving to Beijing, it already became quite clear that the temperatures are higher than in Finland and it also applies to Jiaonan. I am of course the only one who is wearing bermuda-style shorts and everyone else seems to be considering this as good but not too hot weather (and for me, this is something I consider hot). It is nice to enjoy some warm weather and sunshine and just relax.

Photos about different things start to appear during our vacation so stay tuned!
