All of you know I always have a lot to say, thoughts about everything, really. Many of you have met my wonderful husband, who also has good things to say. So he is doing this post today about our travel FAQ’s:
I’m excited to be doing a guest post for my talented wife’s blog! I’ve gotten a lot of questions about our imminent trip, so I got the urge to write them out since the answers are long and get boring in conversation.
Where will you be traveling?
We will be spending half our time in Xi’An which is where Mackenzie’s orphanage is, then on to Guangzhou to the US Consulate.
What is your itinerary?
Friday–Arrive in Xi’An
Tuesday–Work on Chinese passport
Wednesday–Terra Cotta Warriors
Friday–Pick up Chinese passport and travel to Guangzhou
Saturday–Medical checkup, and TB test
Monday–TB test results and US paperwork
Tuesday–US paperwork review
Thursday–Mackenzie gets sworn in as a US citizen
Friday–Pick up visa
Are you going to do any sightseeing?
In XiAn there are the terra cotta warriors, and the guangzhou safari preserve, where I might get to feed a baby tiger.
How long is the flight?
Looooooooong. 17 hours in the air, plus layovers makes for a long trip. Wish us luck on the way home as we travel with a cranky two year old.
Are you swamped with last minute preparations?
Joanna has been on top of everything, and as a loyal reader you already know the nursery is ready to go. I’ve almost done with toddlerproofing the house, and Joanna already has all of our stuff packed for the trip.
Thats all for now folks, we appreciate your thoughts and prayers as we get our little girl!
