A collection of my thoughts as I travel the world.

Day 1 – First day in Shanghai

What a way to start a trip.

Get told that we are waiting for a thunder storm to past before we take off from Auckland then proceed to have a continuously bumpy flight which lead to no sleep. At least I met Miah, a touch ref that had done the trip a few times so I got to get some insight into what to do / expect.

Upon landing in Shanghai customs etc was the easiest i’ve ever had. Jumped on the Maglev train at a slow 301km/hr.

This is where it got a bit crazy for a while. Once off the maglev train, the order was gone. We hopped on the city Metro and experienced Chinese population density first hand. I got half way on the train with no room and doors shutting before getting the straps on my pack almost stuck in the doors. read more

The running itinerary is roughly.

Will keep the first post short and sweet, just needed to get it going first!
