July 26th Toronto to Beijing Airport/Hotel With China being 12 hours ahead most of the day was spent on our 12.5 hour plane ride which surprisingly wasn’t so bad. We got so lucky checking in for our flight when the staff offered to move us to seats without someone in between us. Knowing we had…

Day 34 – What A Day (Wade)

In Owen Sound, about 185km from home, we decided to make the push home. We set the alarm for 5:00am. I went to bed at 11pm, but woke up for good at 2:30am (🙄) and Nathan decided to go to sleep at 1am. So we were both exhausted before we even started. I checked the…
