We've been a trio since we left North Korea, where we met a Norwegian travel veteran. I call him a veteran but in fact I'm five years his senior. The veteran moniker is issued due to his commitment to traveling. He works four months a year and then travels for eight. The Norwegian currency is strong and the average person earns a relatively huge wage on the international market. He may not live an opulent life style ...
In our last blog we told you about the accident that happened on the Lumsden farm. We are very happy to know that Martijn is making great progress and is recovering well. He has his sister with him now and might be out of hospital reasonably soon. He still has a long recovery time ahead of him though.

We parked our bikes and trekked up 800 stone stairs to the peak of a mountain, where there were wild goats running around, and not a soul in sight. We literally saw 2 tourists the entire way up/down, which is a RARITY in China, where people (mostly Chinese) swarm through every tourist destination. We continued to bike for a few hours afterwards, all over town and the ...

Based around renovated Qing courtyard style hotel; beautiful mountain backdrop. Quiet & peaceful. Amenities good. Next door restaurant (Le Votre) also owned by them- excellent food at good prices. Very central and room had good facilities. No in-room internet but attractive lobby had guest computer.
