Traveling Through China!!! ♫ (Part 1)

Hello my friends, fellow bloggers, people of the world! As you most likely and hopefully already know, I went on a vacation to china with my family for 3 weeks. Bought a TON of stuff, food, goodies, etc. and i'm ready to just lie in bed and enjoy the 2-3 weeks of summer break before school starts! >.< the entire trip schedule was extremely tiring mostly because we had to travel to so many places in such a short period of time T.T Our first stop was Beijing where we visited some relatives, went shopping and sight seeing. Stayed there for about 5 days. we then flew Shen Zhen where we took a bus to this border crossing security building area. We waited about 2 hours in an endless mob of people, and after we got past that line, had to get in another line and wait ANOTHER 1 hour, before FINALLY getting on ANOTHER bus to our hotel in Hong Kong. However, i do believe I have the right to say, that the wait, was totally worth it! Hong Kong is an AMAZING city, the sights, sounds, not so much the smell sometimes and definitely NOT the hot hot hot humid weather!!! Our main reason for traveling there was to meet my sister's fiancee's parents and grandma. In Hong Kong, we shopped, walked around, went to Victoria Park, overall gorgeous city, you need to go there, oh, and surprisingly very tourist friendly! Read part 2, consists of pics, and a continued description of the rest of my trip! sorry if you find the part 1 part 2 thingy stupidly annoying...i need to go somewhere now and ran out of time, sorry, bye!  (Traveling Through China part 2 will be posted tomorrow!)

Ah I'm jealous XD I bet Hong Kong is beautiful, they speak Cantonese in Hong Kong, right? Not Mandarin?
