I’m Just back from 2 months in China and Philippines! Here is a taste of what I will be working on to create a BRAND NEW SEVENTH SHOW about absurd travels.
1) SLEEPING ON THE GREAT WALL!
Challenging to get to and totally illegal, but this was a really cool experience that will be a great tale to tell in the new show.
2) MUDPIT – DIRTIEST CAVE IN ASIA?
If you don’t think you get dirty enough with regular spelunking (caving), you can go deep underground in Yangshuo, China and REALLY get into the muck…
3) CRUCIFIXION AS A HOBBY?
These volunteers must have some serious sins to atone for to be willing to be nailed to crosses… As you will see this is a FAMILY event too!
52 Countries represented in this race! Talk about an undulating route! Some were very scared on the steep downhills.
The KHAM Centre in Kangding (near Tibet) provides subsidized cataract surgeries (assisted by Vancouver’s SEVA). I got to follow the process and decided to pay for surgeries for 3 Tibetan sisters who travelled 1200 km over 3 days to get there! Buying them their vision may have been the best value for money I have ever spent.
