Family
Always keen to try new things, we had our first trip in a Hot Air Balloon. As you'll see from the pics - all went well. It's amazing just how big the balloon is - and, in comparison, how small the bucket is!  If you are interested - I can thoroughly recommend this company - they were fantastic.  http://hotair-balloonrides.co.uk/

A visit to UK would not be the same without visiting family - so we had mini trips over to see Lynn & Chris (and Kimberley) and to see Stephen & Christine. We did see David & Teresa too - but obviously forgot to take pics!  The final family pic is the latest niece... Scarlett Olivia Darcy Hughes!  

We also got the keys for the apartment we bought to rent out - so were in to tidy up after the last owners pretty much trashed it - and and Shanhong got her first taste of painting!

Although Shanhong's dad is in his 80s and mum not far behind, they surprised us this year by announcing they would not be staying in Beihai for Christmas/New Year, but would be going to Hainan island.  A bit of probing later and we discover they had bought a new apartment!

So. after Christmas in our own place in Beihai, we joined them for the start of their new adventure, arriving in their new, but empty apartment in a small town on the island of Hainan. Within the first two days we had deliveries of furniture to be built, items ordered online, items shipped from Beihai, contractors trying to finish various bits of plumbing and electrics, internet, electricity and gas to arrange.... and hence a busy time. The pictures here, however, hopefully show all went well, and they have a beautiful place with a fantastic sea view!
