Goodbye Shanghai…Goodbye China… Goodbye Favorite Gators hoodie!
I only had one month to plan…or attempt to plan this trip, so I just chose some locations and bought the tickets. In china, we realized that arriving and departing from Beijing was not the optimal option. We ended up doing a loop, Beijing, Xian, Chengdu, Kunming, Guilin, Yangshou, and Shanghai. It would have been nice to leave from Shanghai, but it was cheaper to buy a ticket Shanghai-Beijing than changing my original ticket.
As a result we spent a night from airport to airport. After a day of sightseeing we returned to the hostel, picked up our bags and headed to the Shanghai airport for a late night fight to Beijing. Once we arrived to Beijing, we realized that my favorite long sleeve Gators Hoodie was lost. We thought we forgot it in the Airplane, so Ryan went back to the plane to look for it. He didn’t find it, but for some reason, he went back again to the plane, while I waited from him in the jet bridge (bridge between airplane and airport).
The second time, he didn’t see any crew members. we decided to leave to get the suitcases and realized that we were stuck in the jet bridge…they locked us up!!! we started freaking out…I was worried about the suitcases and about being left there …forever hahaha.
Finally, after about 20 minutes locked up, somebody passed by, saw us and helped us. Once free…we got our suitcases and found some chair to sleep. Our flight to Hong Kong only left the next morning.
