Beijing is happening - my must do list

Beijing is actually happening. It's only for a week, but flights are booked. Now I can spend the next 3 months thinking about accomodation and sightseeing. This will hopefully give me something to pull me through the boring days ahead! On my must do list:
#1 Climb the Great Wall

I was very naughty with money yesterday. I also booked flights to visit a friend in Melbourne over Australia day and the weekend following it. I left it pretty late so it cost $350, but I am past caring about saving. I have been feeling sad and drained these past weeks and it has made me more determined to live in the present and enjoy it while I can.
