One Week to Go!

Well, followers it is a week today that Savoir Faire leaves on vacation. Needless to say we cannot wait to be tramping the Great Wall of China and experiencing the countless other delights that China has to offer, chicken feet and all.

Of course, one asks the question what do I pack for a whirlwind 10 days in China? While I have the basics planned, Catherine over at The Fashionable Traveller has at least solved the problem with her post Fake Bags. I have always considered myself a good packer; however Catherine gives some great tips, which I will definitely be using.

Have a wonderful weekend all!


  1. Sounds like an amazing adventure!!!!

  2. Hi David-Bon Voyage! Thanks for the link and travel safely.

  3. So cool...I bet China is a beautiful country..though I will totally confirm it once you post the pictures (yeah I´m expecting pictures)...I´ll miss you that week David!..but have a wonderful trip...please don´t eat chicken feet hahaha


  4. I simply can't wait to see
    China through your eyes .. .
    Bon Yoyage, dear David !


  5. I trust that there will be cotton suits in your luggage?

    I agree that the tips are most useful. Have an excellent trip and try the lizard on a stick



  6. Hopped over to Catherine's fake bags first so I could be an informed commenter!! She presented great tips, some of which I already incorporate and some of which were new great suggestions. And as for fake bags - never, ever, ever!! So - have a great trip - how exciting - can't wait to read your report!!

  7. Ni Hao David,

    I am an old China hand, having lived in Beijing for a number of years, and number one son still lives in Shanghai.

    You might want to check out the ober stylish Green T House or Green T Living in Beijing (bring your wallet), and say hello to the owner JinR from her friend Marjorie. The Dirt Market in Beijing is great fun - go early.

    Have fun!

  8. David, we'll be looking forward with anticipation to your views of China. Have a wonderful trip!

  9. Wow very very congratulation for your great trip. Enjoy your life

  10. Many thanks all for your wonderful comments. Still have not packed yet and trying to finalise all at work!

  11. China! What a great choice!!! I can only imagine how many discoveries are waiting for you on your vocation and how many wonderful posts will come out of it. One day, I promise, to gather enough courage to go to China and India. Right now the shier image of red flags and communist tendensies scare the living soul out of me. I have had enough of it growing up. :-)))
