We had an unforgettable flight to Shanghai. From departing Melbourne the sky was clear, with speckles of cloud here and there, we could see the land and ocean clearly for most of the trip (until reaching China). After sleeping for the first 50 minutes to catch up on sleep lost from the early start, we watched outside our windows as we crossed the land. For 2 hours, as we flew through the Northern Territory, we saw red and yellow earth and dried river beds that made beautiful patterns across the land. We even flew over Uluru but we couldn’t see the famous landmark. At one point the land changed colour from red to brown and green, and small towns began to pop up close to water sources. Watching down below as the land met the sea, we waved out the window and officially said goodbye to Australia. Everyone was getting restless and tired towards the end of the flight. Hope asked if we were nearly there after 2 hours. When we saw all the bright lights of Shanghai from above the atmosphere was ecstatic. As we exited customs Mr and Mrs Odgers were waiting for us! On the way to the hotel our tour guide Mike sung us a song in english, he is very funny!
We drove from the airport to our hotel and saw hotels and skyscrapers with changing coloured neon lights and everything looks absolutely amazing and we can’t wait to explore tomorrow. Goodnight bloggers.
