Aaron and Charlotte Harvey always dreamt of visiting China, but because they had kids before they had a chance to, they had to wait. Now that Logan and Emily were 13 and 11, their parents felt they were old enough for a trip like that, so in July 03, the Harvey Family packed their bags and traveled all the way to China.
The hotel had a lot of steps, but it didn’t matter, they were in CHINA!
Logan and Emily shared a room next to their parents’. It was a great room.
A familypicture was taken in front of The Temple of Heaven, but the temple was so impressive, it distracted the family slightly…
It was beautiful though…
Later that day it was time for some real Chinese food.
Emily handled the chopsticks her way. 😉
The next morning they went to see some more sights, like the Terracotta Army.
A few days later they visited the Dragon’s Maw, it was huge and impressive.
And the views from up there were gorgeous…
Logan wanted to try Martial Arts, so later that holiday they went to the Resolute Fist Retreat
Keep practicing Logan!
He did eventually earn a belt.
And then there was Liu, a girl Logan met at the retreat. She spoke a bit of Simlish which she learnt in school, so they could communicate.
Liu was really nice…
The girls spent the last day of their holiday reading at a campside, while the men in the family tried their luck at fishing.
Before long, it was time to say goodbye to new friends and head back home again. Hopefully we’ll meet again someday…
