After breakfast at 8.00 we checked out at 10.30 and left for the airport for our flight KA951 to Hong Kong where we connected to CX791 for our flight to KLIA arriving past midnight the next morning.
On this holiday I used my Lumix TZ70 compact camera, the Lenovo Vibe Shot smartphone and the iPad Air 2 to capture a total of over 1500 photos and videos. Fortunately we purchased travel insurance which covered baggage delay. Although the Qingdao holiday is quite different from the UK/Lake Como holidays in October 2015 it fulfilled its objective. There are no incense filled temple visits or shopping stops. The tour manager and local guide are courteous and knowledgeable. Except for the food which was of average quality I found the water melon served at almost every meal to be very sweet. Managed to take back several seeds and successfully grew them. They are small but sweet as those I tasted in Qingdao.
