I've just returned to Hong Kong, after the spending the day shooting in the howies denim factory in china, the main goal and aim after all this traveling. It was definitely a highlight that's for sure.
It's an amazing place they have going out here...not what you think when you see 'Made in China' and I hope the pictures do the place and people justice.
So now, I guess...thats it...job done.

OK, You may think why didn't I fly, or as someone quite rightly commented on an earler blog, 'isn't all this travel bad for the environment'... well yes it is. But personally I'm not going to stop, I can't. I do it for work and I do it for pleasure...it's just me. So this was an experiment into another way for me to travel, a way that treads a little lighter. Slow Travel.
Tomorrow I'm leaving Hong Kong, but i'm not coming home...I may be some time yet.
