Today is the big day, travel to camp day! The nerves are setting in as we realised this wasn’t just a sightseeing adventure, we’re actually here to do a job and fulfill a role. We set off at 7:30am from our lovely Holiday Inn, Beijing and embarked on our 5 hour journey to Qinhaungdao, a port city on the coast of China in northeastern Hebei province. The future was unknown, we were told not to have high expectations. The journey was long and hot, the only stop we had definitely did not prove us wrong! Service stations in China aren’t a place I would like to visit often.
Upon arrival into Qinhuangdao we were pleasantly surprised and the hotel has definitely exceeded expectations, it’s on par with the Holiday Inn we had sadly left!
