#TravelVlog: Day One in Beijing China | Summer Palace and Fast Food

Welcome back to Selena Thinking Out Loud for my travel video blog of day one in Beijing, China. I had the opportunity to visit the country in July 2018 through the international study abroad component of my master's degree program at Mt. Saint Mary's University. Last week, I shared with you the various vegan meals I had on board Asiana Airlines. If you missed that video, you can click here to watch

In the following video below, you are going to get a glimpse into which fast food chains are popular in China. You will see how they meet the demand, provide good customer service, and anytime access to their food options. Then you will go with me to the Summer Palace in northwest Beijing to see the imperial garden that was in the Qing Dynasty! We will end our day one adventure with a walk to dinner and a quick observation of the stores to shop until you drop.

Stay Tuned...
Next, we are walking up the Great Wall and more during Day Two in Beijing, China!

Eating #Vegan Meal Options on Asiana Airlines Flight to Beijing China

Happy New Year! It has been a while since I have written to you from my blog here at Selena Thinking Out Loud, but it has been for a good reason. For the past 15 months, I was working on my Master of Business Administration degree. I finally completed my degree this past December 2018! Yay!

During my master degree studies I had the opportunity to have an international study abroad experience in China. It was my first time there and I was really interested to learn more about the country. 

For the next several weeks, I will take you on the journey through different parts of China, but to start you off I want to share with you, in the video below, my experience eating vegan meal options on my Asiana Airlines flight from Los Angeles International Airport to Beijing Capital International Airport.

Before my big flight day, I called the airline and updated my flight information with my vegan dietary requirement. I gave them my flight number and it was easy as that. Once I boarded my first flight a flight attendant found my seat and politely informed me that my vegan meals were on board. This continued for the other flights too! Wow! I appreciated the personalized customer service. Each of the meals were fresh, hot, and tasty! I had an eggplant dish that I actually make at home too. I highly recommend Asiana Airlines if you're looking for a positive flight experience and are vegan or have specific dietary needs.
