Today, We Ride

8,134 km so far. Once again, we are cycle tourists. I am quite happy that things didn’t work out yesterday with getting on the train to Maoming. We weren’t too keen on the idea of riding our bikes out of Guangzhou, but once again, Pocket Earth showed us the way. We rode over a few […]

Nowhere Fast

8,071 km so far. Today was one of those days when things go exactly as you had expected they would – and you totally had expected them to all go wrong. Our plan was to get up early, go to the railway station (that we’d travelled right across the city to get to last night), […]

Helping Hands

8061 km so far. We are leaving Fine Yoga Retreat this morning and heading south. How far we will get and how/if we will manage to get our bikes on the train is anyone’s guess at this point. Uncomfortably Numb It was -1C/29F this morning as we were preparing to head out and start our […]

Going Down To Noodle Town

8,020 km so far. Keen observers will notice that we are no longer at 8,008 km. Yes, the bike trip has officially resumed! OK, our ride today was only down to the nearest village to get food, but it still counts. We are once again in a lovely little bamboo hut at the Fine Yoga […]

Rollin’ Rollin’ Rollin’

8,008 km so far. We are rolling the rails once again, heading back to “The Mainland”. It’s about 1,200 km from Hong Kong to Chibi, so we are in for a full day of travel. Between Guangzhou and Chibi there is a bullet train, so at least we don’t have to travel through the night, […]

Trimming Down and Packing Up

8,008 km so far. Since it’s our last day in Hong Kong, today was a big day for crossing the last few to dos off our list. We spent our energy fighting through crowds in Hong Kong’s Central district to visit the post office, two coffee shops, and several bookstores. Heavy Decisions We were looking […]

Less Smog, More Smaug

8,008 km so far. One more move while we are here in Hong Kong, as we headed back to Teresa’s for our last couple of nights in town. After dropping our stuff off, we went out for food and a walk around Teresa’s neighbourhood. This involves endless stairs, up and down, up and down, but […]

Passion People

8,008 km so far. This morning Stephen taught his last lululemon class in Hong Kong (of this trip). It was a full house and a fun, friendly group, many of whom had been to one of his other Hong Kong classes. Also, he got to say Ishvarapranidhana a lot, which is always fun. Beware Of […]

Yoga Hat Trick

8,008 km so far. When I teach more then once in a day, the whole day becomes about yoga. There are usually a few hours between classes, which means with eating and travel time, there isn’t much left of the day. Usually, I would spend some time between classes practicing at whatever studio I’m teaching […]

Feeding The Machine

Despite our feeble efforts to get out early today, we ended up staying in and working for hours. I have felt drowned by work ever since we got to Hong Kong, which is a ridiculous way for someone with no job to feel. So, though it’s a little lame to stay in when we’re in […]
