The first day traveling to China has been amazing! We woke up bright and early, exhausted! Who could sleep?! It was like Christmas morning :)
We flew Korean Air from Atlanta to Seoul and it was the best I've ever experienced. We were on an Air Bus which was a massive double-decker.
We tried to go up top and check out the lounge and bar area but we were in economy seating so us peasants were not allowed to.... Boo! We did get up often to walk around since it was a 14 1/2 hour flight. The plane was a bit stuffy so we would go stand in the duty-free shopping area in the very back.
The food was great! It seemed as if they fed you every couple of hours. For lunch I had the bibimbap. I took a picture but didn't think about it till I was almost done :/ Bibimbap is a Korean dish that is a bowl of meat and vegetables. You put steamed rice, sesame oil and gochujang (Korean hot paste) in, mix and eat!
The flight from Seoul to Beijing was a smaller bumpier ride. Fortunately it was a short hour and 45 minutes because I got motion sick and occupied the bathroom a few times. Blah. After going through immigration and getting our luggage, our agency rep, Cecilia, met us outside. She was very sweet and told us some about the area while we drove to our hotel, the Sunworld Dynasty....
