This year, Chunyun's first day just happens to be the first day of February. The travel crush goes on until March 12th. Chinese authorities estimate that just under three billion trips will be made during those forty days.

My personal journey home to the family is only a little over 400km. By Chinese standards this is relatively short. Most importantly, no part of it takes place in China.
