This is what we have been waiting for and now the trip starts
As usual, we were late for the departure and left around 12 PM and the caravan/car/cargo box have been packed with food, clothes, electronics, toys and all other needed stuffed inside. Caravans storage spaces were quite limited and luckily we had the KIA with a rooftop box so we could fit everything. Preparations have been ongoing for a longer period and Taobao was heavily used now it is time to see how we have managed with packing.
The wife has made a lot of preparations regarding food and commonly used articles for the whole trip. I think we can survive for a longer period without visiting any shop.
Next stop is Haizou bay at evening
Originally we had planned to reach the target Qingdao (760km), and very soon we realized that’s not possible within a reasonable time. On the way, we searched online for a suitable place to stay and many recommendations for Haizhou Bay parking. Decided to take a look too if it is suitable and safe. This place seemed to be really good for a short stay and we decided to stay here for one night. The day already passed and we could hear we are close to the sea. Many restaurants with seafood available and small fun park for the children. The parking lot was packed and needed to maneuver the trailer to find a suitable spot. The music and the sounds lasted until 12 PM but after that it got quiet. Time for nice first night sleep in the caravan.
Here is our evaluation of Haizhou Bay beachfront and parking
