My daughter Mason has said for years that she wants to visit every continent. Turns out, I can embrace that dream and help make it happen. Thus, we embarked on a luxury small group tour to China. I’ve said it a hundred times, but it rang so true on this trip. A great guide is imperative and takes a good trip to a WOW trip. Nancy, our guide in China, was one of the best guides I have ever had. Traveling to China can be challenging because of the cultural and language differences but Nancy insured we were comfortable and happy throughout the journey. She was absolutely brilliant at managing a group so it was a seamless tour from start to finish. Now, about China. I was so engaged in this trip and couldn’t stop reading and learning about it after I returned home. Let me know if you want a book list! The history is fascinating and so is how they manage their absolutely huge cities – 24 million people living in one place! But, my top three moments were walking along the Great Wall, viewing the Terra Cotta Warriors and interacting with the Giant Pandas. Sharing it with my teenage daughter made it priceless.
