  1. 2016 - China? - Hong Kong Pt 2

    12 Oct 2016

    Hong Kong Pt 2 February, 2016. Coming back to Hong Kong was both a curse and a blessing. A curse because China was a complete rush and a blur of dark nights with bright lights, and a lot of skewered meat. But it was also a blessing because the toilets…


  2. 2016 - China - Shenzhen, Part 2 of 2

    09 Oct 2016

    February, 2016 After our wicked trip from Chongqing, we landed back in Shenzhen in the middle of the morning. Fun fact, although China probably qualifies to be split into 4 different time zones, they choose to have one unified time zone (China Standard Time UTC+8). Fun fact, in Eastern China,…

    20 Sep 2016

    February, 2016 This is a city I’ve only heard terrible things about whilst growing up — that it was poor, it was backwards, and everyone is there to take your money. What travelling has taught me was that no matter where you are, assholes and tourists will almost always be…


  6. 2016 - China - Shenzhen, Part 1 of 2

    10 Sep 2016

    February, 2016 If Hong Kong represents order and civility, Shenzhen (it’s border town) is anything but. Think of it, if you were a Canadian, the Ottawa and Gatineau relationship; or the English and French border town relationship; same-same, but different. I knew this would be chaotic because this was my…
