We have arrived in China. After 9 hours in a completely full plane from Paris to Beijing.
When doing a Big Move, the best way to not become sentimental and miss your friends is to:
(1) have no fixed plans untill the last minute;
(2) stay awake late all the week before you move; and
(3) travel with your baby.
We basically didn't sleep the whole night flight (although Sophie managed some shut eye in her bassinet). I wanted to murder the crew memeber who woke me up for breakfast after I had finally dropped off. Why do they always do this?! I know there are stickers which you can put on your seat which say "don't wake me for meals" but how come they always fall off the fabric/ don't exist on Air France?
Oh yeah - in all that rush I left my mobile phone charger still plugged into the home socket at home. So you cannot phone me on my mobile after all... Email access is good though.
