May 16, 2009 updated itinerary for panda moonbear trip by you.

Here is my very loose itinerary for our 2010 trip back to visit  director Jill Robinson of Animals Asia foundation in China to learn more about their moonbear rescue.

FIRST STOP..CHENGDU CHINA

Jill invited us to observe surgeries and health checks if there are any scheduled for that week. I’m so excited

NOW TWO PANDA CENTERS

The first is the Chengdu panda base is where my Bao Shi is.  Lichunlin says she is quite the young lady now and she keeps asking to see me…hee hee hee.!! I can’t wait!!

Chengdu Panda Base February, 2008
NEXT….BIFENGXIA PANDA CENTER
to see all our Pandarazzi adopted cubbies.  We most likely will go 2 days and not one as it shows on the schedule, but all depends on the fact that Chinese New Year is on Valentines Day…Sunday.  I am checking into the hours of the center that previous week

NEXT STOP…THAILAND
to visit my adopted ellies at the Elephant rescue again in Chiang Mai.
Elephant Nature Park, Chiang Mai Thailand 2/08
We are looking at other options in Chiang Mai for adventure. My travel partner for this trip and long time friend Gayle, will freak out when she sees this!!!   LOL!
This adventure is just outside of Chiang Mai and was featured on the Amazing Race….Wow would this be fun but also very scary at the same time.  What say you Gayle??? You are probably going screaming for the exit right about now…lol

My son Bryan and his fiance Kate are going to Thailand in January for their honeymoon so I’m doing double duty researching for both of us. This is how I found the website via Trip Advisor…my travel bible!!
Feb 2008 Hilltribe trek, Chiang Mai Thailand

So you can see it’s going to be a fun and adventure packed couple of weeks and I’m so glad to get our basic itinerary ready to go and reservations made now.  We got the LAST room at the Bed and Breakfast in Chiang Mai and Jill at AAF was booked all through January .  I jumped on the opportunity when she said she could meet with us in Feb.
MORE TO COME…..now I am starting on our Egypt and Turkey itinerary!!! Yippie!!!
