3 DAYS IN SHANGHAI, CHINA

Shine bright like a diamond they say… well everything was certainly shining brightly as I flew into Shanghai International Airport. Arriving in the wee hours of Tuesday morning (3.00am) on the 20th September, I had time to explore before my representative and interpreter picked me up mid afternoon for the event. The hustle and bustle of…

DAY 3: QUEENSTOWN

Early start today with our first appointment was at Eichardt’s Private Hotel, positioned looking directly down the Lake. You can just tell on walking in that this is an establishment of quality. They feature the most expensive accommodation in town with their Penthouse Suite being the ultimate in luxury. This historic landmark was established in…

Scott and Ann Wiggins were our hosts and kindly put us up at their home…

I had a…

DAY 3: MINNEAPOLIS

5.00am start and we were through security and on our way to the northern state of Minnesota.

Landed,…
