Adelaide China Shanghai Qantas

27 August 2012

Time to go

Its about time to go on another holiday. Asia of course, more specifically China yet again.
This means I have actually managed 4 overseas trips in 1 year, perphas something to be proud of.
The goal this time - dont die of heat stroke or drown in floodwaters from a typhoon.
Today I am going to Shanghai and there is actually a typhoon forecast.
The immediate goal however is to actually make my connecting flight in Sydney, the connection time is only 1 hour, during which time I need to transfer terminals on a bus and clear customs. Unfortunately there are still no direct flights from Adelaide to China, and theres only 1 flight a day on Qantas to anywhere in China.
It does seem ridiculous that Qantas can only sell 300 tickets a day to China, out of the total 10,000 or so that are sold across all the other Chinese airlines that fly between Australia and China, but thats the strength of our once great national carrier for you.

On this trip I will be spending some more time in Shanghai, as thats where the plane goes, but also will move around to Nanjing and Hangzhou. I dont really know what to do there other than eat lots of things and walk a lot until my feet turn into festering blisters, photos to come.
I have also bought a new camera for this trip, it does all sorts of useless things like turn photos into water color paintings, in camera HDR (clown vomit), photo stacking, auto crop etc. So you can look forward to some awesome effects that render the subject matter unrecognisable.

I had to break the news to my missus that I was again buggering off to China. Chocolate seems to work well in such circumstances. She was a bit surprised I only bothered to tell her the night before.

Me, in my red colored street at 4 AM on a Monday morning. The red lights are to help the homeless people that live in my street get some well earned rest from all their drinking, can collecting, pissing on my fence etc.


Adelaide-China-Shanghai-Qantas - Qantas recognise how awesome I am once again, with a free business class upgrade.
