A flight to Lhasa was going to take off from Beijing Capital International Airport on the morning of July 8. Most passengers are tourists from home and broad for Tibet. Among them there was an elder couple drawing people's attention. They talked in both English and mandarin sometimes. They were the oldest passengers on board with 95 and 94 years old from Qingdao, Shandong Province.

The couple dreamed of travelling to Tibet all their lives but they couldn't realize it as they lived overseas most of the time. Now they had the opportunity to make their dream come true with their young generations who came back from America and would travel together with them to Lhasa. The family planned not to visit famous feature spots in Tibet such as the Potala Palace and Jokhang Temple but very common people in countryside where they believed unique natural scene and folk customs could be found.

"It's very convenient now to travel for Tibet. Toursits can choose from various transports not only buses, aeroplanes, but also trains. We want to travel by train but children don't have much time to kill," Said the elders sadly.

They finally reached their destination and began their dream journey of Tibet!
