I'm from Adelaide, Sth Australia - where are you from?
Have not travelled with 'G' before - but have travelled a little over the years.
I'm probably classed as a more mature traveller, but fit and prefer adventure travel!

I'm arriving the day before (afternoon of the 19th), but no extra days other than that. I've never traveled by myself, so I was nervous about book extra time. I'm originally from Ottawa, Canada, but I live in upstate NY now. Joe, I actually lived in California for a couple of years -- Lompoc. Don't have the visa yet -- I might go to the Chinese Embassy in Ottawa, not sure yet.

I'm on facebook -- on G Adventures facebook page, in the G-Meet-up section, I posted like a month ago.

Hi,
I'm thinking about booking a couple of day tours in Beijing and HK for my extra days - have not booked accommodation yet, but will probably stay at the same place as the tour.
I have fb and will post on the G Adventure page.

Hi Karsten, where are you from? Are you a solo traveler as well?

Joe -- Hot, humid, rainy? hmm, I think I need to buy a travel rain jacket.

I'm arriving on the 19th, but I couldn't get the same hotel as the start hotel. I got one in the same "district" but it's 8 km away. Anyway, there is nothing on our official itinerary for the 20th, so if anyone wants to somehow meet up and do something, let me know!

Hi guys,
I have a couple of days extra before and after. Am thinking of booking a couple of 'Urban Adventure' day trips in Beijing and HK. Will probably leave booking the HK extras till we get going and maybe get some ideas from others.
Might do a short tour to a different part of the Wall.
If anyone else is interested in doing something similar, I will let them know when, how and who with I'm booking.
Stacy :)

Hey guys. I'm from eastern Canada and really looking forward to this trip. I've been on a couple of other trips with G adventures, and like Joe mentioned, they've proven to be really good.

I'll be arriving on the 18th, so have some time to kill. Not sure what I'll be doing just yet.

Only a few more days now!

Cheers,
Richard
