My Journey from Shekou to Rotterdam

As you know, we will be leaving China and heading for ‘pastures new’ in the Netherlands.

As you can see, the removals company has arrived today. Judging by the boxes, they seem to be packing an awful lot of tigers, but no dogs. Tsk!

While my humans are still packing, I thought I would keep myself busy by working on my blog and planning my itinerary from Shekou to Rotterdam:

The first leg of my journey is from Shekou to Chek Lap Kok Airport in Hong Kong.

My ‘chauffeur’ will pick me up on Sunday evening and drive me to a five star doggy hotel. I’ve been told that there is free bed and breakfast (drool…).

Then, on Monday morning, I begin my intercontinental flight from Hong Kong to Amsterdam Schiphol Airport. Woof! Woof! – More air miles! (Next time I fly, I will demand an upgrade from ‘cargo’ class to first class).

When I reach the Netherlands I have to put my clogs on and hot-foot it from Amsterdam down to a little place call Hellevoetsluis. I will be staying in some holiday villa there for a few days before we find our new permanent home. This is likely to be in Rotterdam.

Got to go, I need to pack my bones.
