TRAVEL APPROVAL
Our agency called today to let us know they received our TA and to ask us about when we can travel!!! We were given the option on leaving on the 6th of March, but we decided to leave the next week because we can get better prices on airline tickets and also have to possiblity of being joined up with a travel group which is ideal since it lowers your expenses whilst in China..and the 'support' of travelling with others is 'priceless'
We weren't expecting it quite so soon...but I did think we'd be travelling mid-March, and it turns out we are!
We are going to leave a couple of days early so that Mike can squeeze in a business meeting or two, and so we can take Piper to Hong Kong Disney...her last 'hoorah' as an only child!!! Now we just need to get the nursery set up and the bags packed and the dog booked into the kennel, and the freezer stocked, and Piper's room fixed up and all her clothes moved from the Nursery, and...and...and....
