Always Trekking

In search of thrills - sometimes it can mean slapping rambunctious monkeys or being chased by a snow storm in the Rockies on a bike. We are trying to explore the commonly overlooked corners of the world before they are taken over by franchises, smog and chainsaws.

Cycling Across Europe

It’s an understatement to say that I’ve been absent from my blog lately. I’m too embarrassed to even look when I wrote my last blog post. A lot of things have happened since the blog has been updated. I left China, breathed fresh air in Canada, cycled from London to Rome, started a new job […]

5 Reasons Why Living in China Sucks

Natalia and I have travelled extensively in SEA. We also spent a year living and working in the Republic of Korea. Nearly all of our experiences have been fantastic. That’s why when we had the chance to live and work in China, with a much higher salary, we jumped at the chance. How could it […]

New Cycling Adventure

It’s been a “fun” few weeks. A few not-so-fun cycling adventures in China made us decide that our initial plans to cycle Shanghai to Hanoi were dusted. To reward ourselves for living in China for 9 months we decided to ride our bikes in a place where food is fucking delicious, where one can camp […]

Living the Dream – Diving in Raja Ampat, Papua, Indonesia

Getting a chance to dive in Raja Ampat is probably on every diver’s dream list. Raja Ampat is an area that is jammed full of life partly due to its remote location making it harder for commercial fishing and an onslaught of eco-tourists. You can see this as soon as you go underwater. The visibility isn’t […]

Living to Die – Tana Toraja, Sulawesi, Indonesia

Lying in the hilly landscape of South Sulawesi, Tana Toraja is a place where the dead receive a send off that would make the Royal family jealous. Families spend their days preparing for funeral ceremonies, all in hopes that their children will execute a proper send off for them. Funerals take months of preparations. Motorbiking […]

Hati! Hati! – Indonesia Trip Highlights

Recently Jonathan and I came back from a three and a half week whirlwind trip across Indonesia. We spent way too much money and too many nights on the move.  We managed to cross Sulawesi completely on land and water from Makassar to Manado. Travelling over 1200km in less than two weeks took a toll […]

Climbing the Great Wall of China – Jiankou to Mutianyu, China

Climbing the Great Wall of China was never high on my list of things to see. Besides Tibet there are very few sights that I get excited about in China and even Tibet has been slipping. In fact, China as a whole has been slipping but more on that later. Anyway, in my mind the […]

The Pollution Situation – Made in China
January 6th, 2014Asia, China, DestinationsNatalia 9 Comments

You’ve all seen it. Sipping your coffee and breathing in your fresh mountain air as you gaze upon the grey photographs of China. Is that a building that I see or  a person or is it just a denser smog? You ponder what it’s like living in China, living with that air. You think to […]

What I Miss Most About Korea
January 2nd, 2014Asia, Destinations, KoreaNatalia 8 Comments

I have now hit the three month mark in my time in China and I find myself reminiscing about our wonderful year in Korea. All this reminiscing is because I’m just not having as a good time in China as I did in Korea.  That time in Korea still remains the best year of my life […]

The Time My Heart Almost Exploded – Shanghai, China
December 24th, 2013Asia, China, Destinations, Featured PostsNatalia 2 Comments

On my third day in Shanghai I received a wake up call that was real China. I experienced what it is like to receive emergency medical attention in the world’s second most powerful nation.  I also saw with my own eyes the difference between being rich and being poor in China. I also learned that when your heart is about to explode […]
