Ben is back in Shanghai, but the real treat is eating at a restaurant with food from China’s Xin Jiang province. It’s a delicious flashback to our journey! Lamb kabobs and pomegranate juice, mmmmmmm....
With Amber slowly healing from her kidney infection, we set off on foot to explore the gorgeous city of Samarkand. Enjoy Episode # 36!
This was probably the low point on our bicycle tour. Amber passed Kidney Stones while in Uzbekistan and we went to a free government clinic to get help. Scary times!
We got a big surprise when we changed money in Uzbekistan! Enjoy Episode #34 and let us know what you think!
We're on to a new country! Riding in the rain, we cross the notoriously difficult Uzbekistan border and Amber learns where peanuts come from! Enjoy Episode #33.
Happy New Year everyone! 2017 had its ups and downs, tears and laughter, moments of pure joy and moments of complete sadness. A rollercoaster of emotions for sure! We encourage all of you to step outside of your comfort zone this year, to learn, to grow and to challenge yourselves. This life is meant for living, not simply existing. We wish everyone love, happiness, and adventure in 2018!
2017 was one hell of a ride! Thanks to everyone for coming along for the journey! We are looking forward to 2018 and all the adventures and love it will bring. Happy Holidays and Happy New Year!
Here is Ben's 2017 Annual Review. He started doing these in 2012 after reading Chris Guillebeau's reviews. Does anyone else do an annual review? Share your link in the comments!
In the big city - Dushanbe! Amber volunteers a bunch and we run around to embassies in search of visas.
