My Recent trip to China: Itinerary

Below is a summary of of our recent trip to China.

To call this an itinerary implies forward planning and may be miss-leading. On departing, we had flights booked to and from Hong Kong, and our trip to Taiwan booked but nothing else - no hotels, flights, or anything. We made it up as we went along.

I kept a diary during the trip on my Blackberry Pearl. I tried to write up the day's events at the end of each day, but some entries were written two or three days later. Any spelling mistakes can be attributed to the SureType feature on the Pearl, which doesn't have a fully qwerty keyboard but shares two letters per key.

This is intended for family and friends and I may remove any posts at any time.
