Road trip | Inner Mongolia 2021 | Shanghai to Haizhou Bay-Yantai | Day 1
The long trip started and heading north by highway. The road conditions are excellent and not so much traffic. small beach with many sea food restaurants

This is what we have been waiting for, and now the trip has started

As usual, we were late for the departure and left around noon, and the caravan/car/cargo box was packed with food, clothes, electronics, toys, and all other needs stuffed inside. Caravan 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 shops.

The next stop is Haizou bay in the evening

Shanghai to Haizhou Bay | Road trip, Originally, we had planned to reach the target Qingdao (760km), and very soon, we realized that was 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. I decided to take a look too if it is suitable and safe. This place seemed good for a short stay, and we decided to stay there for one night. The day passed, and we could hear we were close to the sea. There are many seafood restaurants and small fun parks 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 midnight, but after that, it got quiet. Time for a nice first night’s sleep in the caravan.
