Like It’s 1999

8,008 km so far. And so the year ends. It’s been a wild one for us, entirely spent planning and/or enjoying this crazy trip we’re on. As with everything one undertakes, some of it has been great, some awful, and most of it has been somewhere in between. Looking back on 2013 as a sum […]

Taking Care Of Business

When we have time off in any city there are always chores to get done. Since we are planning to head out of China before February, we have been deciding on the best route south. The next few months of riding will involve visiting at least six countries along the way, and most will require […]

On The Seventh Day, We Rested

8,008 km so far. Travelling for the long term means finding balance. Whenever we’re in a new country or a new city, there is pressure to get out and see all the sights that time will allow. There is pressure to try every recommended restaurant and visit every coffee roaster and sample every cool bar […]

Hong Kong Yoga Tour

8,008 km so far. I am doing a mini teaching tour in Hong Kong, teaching five classes across the four lululemon athletica showrooms in Hong Kong. Today was day one. I love the lululemon community classes because they are free and open to everyone, regardless of income or fitness level. They often draw students from […]

Restless Animals

8,008 km so far. After all the climbing, hiking, and walking down memory lane, we were famished. Our post-tram hike took us straight to Pure Veggie House where we got vegetarian dim sum. We’ve only had dim sum a few times in our lives, so I didn’t really know what to order, but we ended […]

Up The Peak

8,008 km so far. Since the sun was shining brightly this morning, and it was a relatively warm 14 C outside, we decided to hike up to Victoria Peak. I have been looking forward to doing this ever since we decided to come to Hong Kong. Last time I was here, about 5 years ago, […]

Room For Yoga

8,008 km so far. Teaching workshops on Boxing Day is a sure-fire way to get a room full of dedicated yoga students who want to deepen their practice and learn. Today I taught two classes at The Yoga Room, and I had the good fortune to have two groups of students who, though they were […]

Hello Hong Kong

8,008 km so far. The train ride was mostly unpleasant, at times quite trying, and far too long. We now understand why every single person in Shanghai reacted with shocked surprise when we said we were planning on taking the train to Hong Kong. You really get exposed to the local flavour on the train, […]

So Long Sumerian

After packing up our small apartment and checking out, we headed to Sumerian Coffee for one more visit. This has become our local, even though it always involves a metro ride and a half-kilometre walk. The atmosphere is great, the staff are always cheery and friendly, the two dogs that run around the cafe are […]
